Peanut Butter Cookies

“Peanut Butter Cookies” are very easy and fun to make. Just be sure not to use peanut butter that is sugar free or reduced fat. These varieties contain chemicals that can be harmful or even deadly to dogs.

Pup-sicles

These are tasty healthy treats for our dogs at the shelter! Feel free to be creative. You can use any frozen fruit or vegetable EXCEPT cherries, grapes or raisins, and fill the cups with your choice of broth, pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) or yogurt. Again, please do NOT use cherry, or sugar free yogurt as they may contain chemicals harmful or fatal to dogs.

Kitty Puzzles are a great way to keep our shelter cats entertained and active. Start saving your paper rolls and get creative! They can be filled with a few mid quality or higher cat treats, or kibble.

Doggie Burritos are a great long lasting treat, or even a meal replacement and can be made very easily! Please feel free to use any mid quality or higher canned dog food and any mid quality or higher kibble. Once complete, please freeze your treats, and bring them to us at KC Pet Project! Our animals thank you!

Schedule a Youth Group Enrichment Program

This is a great way for Schools, Scouts, or any other youth groups to visit the shelter for a tour, and to volunteer. Your group will have the opportunity to meet with a member of our Canine or Feline staff (perhaps with a furry friend), to learn about what a day caring for our animals at KC Pet Project looks like. Then we’ll make some enrichment treats for our residents, and go on a tour of the public areas. 1 hour of youth service hours can be provided upon request.

In keeping with the Covid-19 guidelines, we have suspended our in person Youth Enrichment Program for now, but we would love to take you on a virtual tour via Zoom!
