Virtual Adoptions

We are not offering virtual adoption appointments at this time. For questions, please reach out to [email protected].

To Schedule an Adoption for your Foster

Please email Grace at [email protected] to schedule your adoption.

Please provide the following information:

  • Name(s) of adopters
  • Phone number
  • Email (if you have it)
  • Name of animal or animal ID
  • When the animal is having surgery (if there is a scheduled date)
  • If the adopter will be picking up/adopting afterward that surgery or on another date

Virtual adoptions are still encouraged to reduce the amount of people in the shelter. This works great if meet n’ greets have been conducted offsite and you are able to hand the animal over once the adoption is completed. Even if they are picking up after surgery, if they already have a virtual adoption done, they have to spend even less time at the shelter. Thank you!

Making a

Veterinary Appointment

Although we do everything in our power to maintain health in our pet population and mitigate infectious disease risk in our care, there are a few illnesses that are common in shelter environments that may require treatment. If you have questions or concerns surrounding the wellness of your foster pet please do not hesitate to call or email the KC Pet Project Veterinary Clinic at 816-683-1353 or [email protected].

Messages will be returned within 24 hours and in many situations we can provide at-home care recommendations to avoid unnecessary human contact. In some situations the sick animal will need medical treatments and will require a visit to the veterinary clinic. 

Please follow the instructions both given over the phone and when arriving to the shelter as we are respecting social distancing and working to eliminate human-to-human contact while providing appropriate healthcare for our foster population. Thank you for caring for the homeless animals in this desperate time of need, we are here to help you!

During this time, fosters can also schedule Curbside Veterinary Appointments should the vet clinic feel that an appointment is needed when you call.
