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.
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.
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.
