On September 1, 2020, KC Pet Project began a transition period to work alongside current KCMO Animal Health and Public Safety Officers and will assume operations of all Animal Services for Kansas City, MO on December 1, 2020.
KC Pet Project is working with a transition team comprised of the top experts in the animal control field along with officers from other Kansas City metro cities and law enforcement officials. We are currently hiring for animal services officers and support staff who will all work out of the new Kansas City Campus for Animal Care. Positions will be available for manager-level, animal services offices, and dispatch specialists.
KC Pet Project’s Animal Services Division will be focused on enhancing public safety and finding efficiencies in these services. Officers will be embedded in the communities they serve to be resources to the residents in those areas, providing support and education. They will be focused on enforcing animal cruelty and neglect laws while upholding animal ordinances. Officers will be trained and certified by the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA) and will have continuing education each year.
The mission of KC Pet Project’s Animal Services Division is to create a safe and humane Kansas City by improving community services and efficiencies. KC Pet Project is also participating in a national pilot program with 17 other organizations called Human Animal Support Services (HASS) where animal protection services and public safety is a key element of this program.
