KANSAS CITY, Missouri — The KC Pet Project, which manages the animal shelters in Kansas City, Mo., has accepted more than 900 new homeless and abandoned dogs and cats in just the past 27 days. Due to this record-breaking number, the KC Pet Project’s third annual “Red, White and Woof” pet adoption event will begin early.

Today through Sunday, July 6, many dog and cat adoption fees will be reduced to $25. Adoption fees include the spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, micro-chipping, 30 days of free pet insurance and more – a $400 value.

KC Pet Project operates three metro animal shelters:
-City’s Animal Shelter: 4400 Raytown Road, Kansas City, Mo. Hours of operation are noon – 6 p.m. Monday – Saturday and noon – 5 p.m. on Sundays.
-Zona Rosa Pet Adoption Center: 7351 N.W. 87th Terrace, Kansas City, Mo. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Sunday – Wednesday and 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Thursday – Saturday
-Petco Pet Adoption Center: 11620 W. 95th St. Overland Park, Kan. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

KC Pet Project asks the community to consider adopting a pet to help them remain a no kill shelter.

“We are housing animals everywhere at our shelter – in offices, in closets, even in the basement,” Teresa Johnson, CEO and executive director of KC Pet Project, said. “Animals are coming in daily by the dozens and our small, outdated shelter simply cannot keep up with this staggering amount of homeless and abandoned pets.”

Individuals may also foster a shelter pet. To get started, fill out the foster application at For more information on the city’s animal shelter or to view all pets up for adoption, visit
