In this Spring issue, we’re sharing details about our progressive approach to animal control services in Kansas City as well as upcoming events that celebrate and support our mission. 2021 was a challenging year with record-breaking numbers of people and pets in need of help, and this year is proving to be equally tough for families with pets across our community.
Municipal shelters across the country, including KC Pet Project, are seeing record numbers of animals arriving daily. We are seeing between 40 – 50 new dogs and cats coming into our shelter every day and expect to take in nearly 15,000 pets in need in 2022.
Our Animal Services Division and our Pet Support Center teams are working hard every day to help pets and pet owners in need. Many communities are under-resourced, and residents have limited access to veterinary care, nutritious pet foods, transportation or affordable housing that allows pets. For 10 years, we’ve been building a compassionate, safe community for pets and people.
Our lifesaving services, including our Keep ‘Em Together KC programs, support thousands of local families with pets by helping them with veterinary care, supplies, emergency boarding, and reclaim fee forgiveness.
We need the generosity and support of our community more than ever before. Consider adopting or temporarily fostering a pet from KCPP, volunteering your time, or attending one of our upcoming events. Your support saves more lives in Kansas City.
