Kansas City, help dogs get a break on their road trip to adoption!

Save to Favorites

Best Friends Animal Society


Transports help save lives by taking dogs from shelters where they are at a high risk to rescue groups in other communities in with higher save rates where they can be adopted into loving homes. You can be a part of this life-saving work by helping at a transport stop.

Have you ever been on a long road trip, and after a full day of driving all you wanted was a warm, safe place to sleep and a good meal? Well, some dogs will soon be traveling in your direction, and they could use a little help from someone like you.

Best Friends is transporting some adorable, adoptable dogs from Houston, Texas, to Minnesota, where they will find their forever homes. But before they get there, they’ll be stopping overnight in Kansas City.

These fuzzy, four-legged travelers will need a few volunteers to help them get situated for their brief stay. This will involve doing some unloading, taking them out for a bathroom break, making sure they are all fed, watered, and bedded down for the night, cleaning up their kennels and helping them get back on the road the following morning.

We typically have 1 - 2 transports come through Kansas City a month, for more information or to sign up, contact us at bfvolcoord@bestfriends.org.
