KC Pet Project

Passionate About Saving Lives!

KC Pet ProjectKansas City Pet Project is the largest No Kill animal shelter in Kansas City, MO and the 3rd largest open-admission shelter in the United States to achieve No Kill status. We are here for nearly 10,000 pets a year and find homes or other placement for over 90% of the pets who come to our shelter. KC Pet Project is creating a No Kill Kansas City – we’re passionate about lifesaving!

Bannister the Yorkie’s life was saved in 2016 after he was found running in frigid temperatures by a caring Kansas City, MO police officer. Bannister’s mouth had been bound tightly with a restraint, like a rubber band, and that restraint had been left around his mouth for a very long time. Bannister recovered for a time in a foster home before finding a lovely family to call his own in February 2016. Thanks to donations to our Roadrunner Medical Fund, we are able to save thousands of ill and injured pets a year that come to us at KC Pet Project.

KC Pet Project provides care for more than 1,000 senior pets every year that come to our shelter, like Ethel. Our S.N.A.P. (Safety Net Assistance Program) helps senior pets find new homes and matches up senior people with senior appropriate pets.

Peanut is one of the nearly 1,000 kittens that were fostered through KC Pet Project in 2016. KC Pet Project saves adult cats, kittens, and neonatal kittens through this program.

Dogs Playing for Life
The Canine Playgroup Program is one of our most progressive, lifesaving programs where every available dog gets the opportunity to get outside and play with other dogs every day.

Free Ride Home Program
Licensing your pet increases the chance that you will be reunited with your pet in the unfortunate event he or she is lost. Kansas City Missouri has recently launched their new pet licensing “Free Ride Home” program. Licensing a pet in Kansas City, Missouri is only $10, plus a $2 administrative fee.

Doggie Tags
