KC Pet Project is leading the way in creating a compassionate, safe community for pets and people through progressive, lifesaving programs and services, community resources, and educational opportunities. Our Rescue and Transport Program is vital to supporting our lifesaving mission, so thank you for looking at some of our available dogs for rescue placement!
Kansas City Pet Project is the municipal shelter for Kansas City, Missouri and we are open admission, meaning we are contractually obligated to take in pets from Kansas City, MO. We cannot control the number of pets coming into our shelter. With that said, our shelter population is fluid and ever-changing. On this page, you’ll be able to obtain information about dogs that are in need of rescue placement.
A disclaimer from our Transport and Rescue Coordinator: I am one person representing a shelter that receives over 15,000 animals annually. I will always do my best to respond quickly, update cards as animals are tagged, transferred out, or no longer available. We believe honesty and transparency are crucial to building positive relationships with our destination partners and I appreciate the same.
