KC Pet Project, the largest no-kill shelter in the Kansas City area, is partnering with area Petco stores to expand its cat adoption program!
We need cat-loving volunteers who want to care for adoptable cats housed in the KCPP cat adoption centers in Petco stores at Independence, Grandview, Kansas City, Belton, Liberty, Blue Springs, Overland Park, and Olathe. KCPP Cat Care Team members will adopt one or more morning shifts (about an hour) or evening shifts (about 30 minutes). This is light work and there are plenty of opportunities to love on the kitties!
Volunteers will play a key role in this new life-saving program. Please contact Alyssa Willett at Alyssa.Willett@kcmo.org if you are interested in volunteering for a kitty-care shift!
The Mission of KC Pet Project is to end the killing of healthy and treatable pets in Kansas City, Missouri by using the most progressive and lifesaving programs and promoting effective animal control policies.
The purpose of the Kansas City Pet Project is to facilitate the placement of homeless pets into suitable homes; to establish and maintain an animal shelter for Kansas City, MO; to maintain associated procedures which promote: the health and welfare of pets in our care, prevention of unplanned litters, pet retention and reunification of lost pets to their owners; to increase public safety by addressing issues related to irresponsible pet owners and dangerous animals. We are keenly focused on optimal lifesaving and creating a No Kill Community in the Kansas City Metro.
We'll work with your schedule.
