Downtown Dog’s Night Out!

Downtown Overland Park is going to the dogs! Grab your four-legged family members for a fun night out in Downtown OP during May's Local Life 3rd Friday event on Friday, 5/18, from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m, in support of our friends at Great Plains SPCA.

You'll find adorable adoptable dogs, Great Plains SPCA merchandise and live music on the clock tower patio all night long. Keep an eye out as you explore Downtown OP for the bright orange window decals that let you know your pup is welcome to join you in-store. Visit Local Life on Facebook for updates on all of the amazing food specials, tastings, sales and fun activities happening all around Downtown OP that night.


  • All dogs must be on a leash (no retractable leashes, please!)
  • Due to Overland Parks' breed-specific legislation, pit bulls will not be allowed to attend. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Learn a little more about Great Plains SPCA:

Kansas City animal welfare has come a long way thanks to a community of devoted organizations, rescue groups and individual animal advocates. Great Plains SPCA collaborates with many of the other animal welfare agencies in the area, because together we can accomplish more.

What sets us apart?

  • We are the Kansas City Metro’s most unique and comprehensive No Kill animal welfare organization, serving more than 35,000 needy pets annually – more than any other agency in the area.
  • As an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our lifesaving services for animals can only be provided because of your generosity and commitment to our mission. We do not receive government funding and we are not affiliated with national organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States or the ASPCA. Great Plains SPCA exists solely because of our caring Kansas City community and gracious donors like you.
  • With a bi-state presence in Merriam and Independence, we are ready to transform Kansas City and beyond to a lifesaving No Kill community.
  • We proudly report a live-release rate of 96% or higher.
  • We offer a lifelong, full-circle approach for pets and their human companions with our three-pronged approach: prevention, adoption, retention.
