KC Pet Project 5k

Saturday, June 10, 2023

For the first time ever, you can run (or walk) in-person to help KC Pet Project give love and medical care to Kansas City’s homeless pets!

Join KC Pet Project on Saturday, June 10th to participate in our first in-person KC Pet Project 5K! You’ll have the opportunity to run or walk to support the care of 15,000 pets that will come through our shelter this year, and do so while enjoying a beautiful race through Swope Park.

All registrants will receive a race bib and commemorative race shirt. Register early to secure a commemorative KC Pet Project 5K medal!

You can sign-up today for Kansas City’s new favorite 5K and support the 15,000 homeless, abandoned, and often injured pets that will arrive at KC Pet Project this year. 

Please note, while this event supports pets in our community, we ask that you leave your 4 legged friends at home (with the exception of service animals). We will have some shelter pets on the route of the race for our participants to see.
