Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center

For 12 years, KC Pet Project has been saving the lives of Kansas City’s pets, which means we have a lot to celebrate!

On Friday, August 16th at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center, join us for a celebration honoring all the lives saved in the past 12 years by KC Pet Project and all that our organization has accomplished.

This event will feature a cocktail hour and dinner, along with silent auction, live auction, program, and entertainment. All funds raised from this one-time event will go toward the care of the nearly 16,000 pets that will enter our shelter this year. 

Join KC Pet Project staff and volunteers, along with members of the civic and philanthropic community, at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel on Friday, August 16th, as we celebrate all that KC Pet Project has accomplished over 12 years and all that we have to look forward in the coming years.
