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!
