Volunteering at KCPP

Volunteers are the heart of KC Pet Project

Volunteers are the heart of KC Pet Project and without their time, talents, and resources we would not be able to save the lives of over 10,000 animals each year. Whether you have a free day on the weekend or an occasional hour after work, there is a place for you at KC Pet Project. Join us today to help change an animal’s life forever.
