Pets Now in the Care of the Shelter
KC Pet Project’s Animal Services Division was on site today at a property in south Kansas City, MO, where the team was called to assist several Kansas City, MO city entities and the KC Police Department, who were issuing notices for people to vacate the property due to code violations. There were reports of many loose animals on the property and the officers took supplies to help contain the pets. Our officers worked to get all of the dogs on collars and leashes and all of the cats in carriers.
16 pets came to the shelter from this property – 7 adult dogs and 9 adult cats. Several of the dogs appeared to be underweight, but all seemed social. The dogs and cats were living in a large open area with a lot of trash, broken glass, and vehicles on the property. They are now being cared for by the shelter staff and will be assessed by the veterinary team to evaluate the health of all the animals. They are not available for adoption at this time, but we will keep you posted on their adoption status.
Our officers work hard each day to help pets like this in Kansas City, MO. and you can just tell how much they care about the work that they do in our community.
All KC Pet Project locations are currently at capacity, so this weekend, the shelter is hosting a Winter Fee-Waived Adoption Event from Friday, February 18 through Monday, February 21st. All dogs 30 pounds or more and adult cats (6 months of age or older) will be free of charge to adopt during the 4-day event at the KC Campus for Animal Care, Zona Rosa Adoption Center, and Petco store on 95th in Overland Park (cats only). Pets in foster homes also qualify for the special.
