COVID-19 presented so many challenges for KC Pet Project, but it also created a wealth of opportunity for innovation. After we implemented emergency internal protocols, we started thinking more about the future of animal welfare and how KC Pet Project can support our community more than ever.
We knew that COVID-19 would have a devastating impact on Kansas City families, and because we believe that no person or family should have to give up a beloved pet due to financial stress, we asked you to help us launch Keep ‘Em Together, KC, which you will read more about in this newsletter.
You’ll also read about KC Pet Project’s national leadership as we join 11 other animal sheltering organizations from across the country to reimagine how sheltering and community support can evolve to save more lives and keep loved pets in their homes.
Of course, expanding our network of foster families is always critical to lifesaving, and I hope you consider opening your home to a foster pet. It’s easier than you think, and we already have a supportive network of seasoned foster families that you can connect with for support! If you can’t foster a pet right now, you can become a Loyal Companion of KC Pet Project by making a monthly donation at kcpetproject.org/loyalcompanions. Your support will save pet lives!
