KC animal shelter gets so many drop-offs you’ll now need to call ahead

Kansas City's animal shelter has become so overwhelmed with unwanted pets that it’s putting a new policy in place. Starting April 1, pet owners will need to make appointments before dropping off pets. Last year the shelter took in 8,179 dogs and cats — 1,300 more than in 2012 and the highest number since 2008.
