The mission of the Volunteer Program at the Kansas City Pet Project is to provide a fulfilling experience to the volunteer and provide necessary assistance where needed at KCPP. Volunteers are one of our most valuable resources. With your commitment and assistance we will work together to make the organization successful in promoting animal welfare, providing public education on the proper care and treatment of animals, and giving shelter animals some much needed love and attention.
If you are interested in volunteering at the shelter you must fit the below requirements:
*We cannot accommodate volunteers with criminal records that include felonies, any charges involved with theft, abuse, or cruelty to animals.
Thank you for your interest in changing a KCPP pet’s life, we are excited for you to join us!
Attend an orientation at the shelter. The orientation is approximately one hour long and we ask that you volunteer at the location that you wish to volunteer at. See dates for our next volunteer orientations.
Volunteer and make a difference in a pets life!
If your group is interested in volunteering at our shelter, we’d love to hear from you! We host corporate groups, youth groups, service clubs, and more at our Main Shelter. Whether your group would like to spend a couple of hours at the shelter, or schedule recurring visits we would love to have you visit us.
Learn more about how your organization and KONG Cares can help provide our shelter dogs with their favorite enrichment toys.
We would love to plan a donation drive, or share DIY projects with your group.
SPARC (Shelter Pet Advocate Resource Committee) is a volunteer marketing committee consisting of volunteer team members who advocate for dogs in our shelter through social media and other outlets. The goal of SPARC is to reduce length of stay for dogs in KCPP custody, therefore keeping more cages open for incoming dogs and saving more lives.
Foster Parent/Family –Join our group of loving foster families. Fostering is an amazing opportunity to open your home to an animal in need. It is so beneficial for pets to experience home life while they wait for their furever home.
