Impounded Pets

Our initial goal, is to get animals reunited with their owners. We follow a mandatory 5 day holding period for all stray animals to give owners time to find their lost pet.

Surrendering a Pet

As Kansas City’s only open admission shelter, we accept pets from the public both as strays and owner surrendered pets. There is a $20 city-mandated fee and you must have a valid Kansas City, MO license or proof of residency and an appointment.

Pet Licensing

Get your pet licensed at KC Pet Project! You can purchase a Kansas City, MO license  at our three adoption centers during normal business hours.


We microchip during normal business hours at all three KC Pet Project locations.
