Our mission is to help abandoned, neglected and forgotten animals in Kansas City and surrounding areas.
We also provide community education/awareness to the public on responsible pet ownership and empower people to make a difference.
Foster or Adopt from The Rescue Project
Help Abandoned, Neglected and Forgotten Animals in Kansas City and Surrounding Areas.
Fostering saves lives!
Foster parents care for injured or sick pets, moms with litters, and single babies who are too young or need training!
With the love and care that our foster parents provide, these animals receive the individual attention that they each desperately need to become truly special lifetime companions. Not only is fostering a fun and educational activity for the whole family, but our foster parents are completely enriched by their experiences.
Steps to Become a Foster Parent:
Up for Adoption
These animals are looking for forever homes.
Each has a unique story that makes them special. All animals are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. All adoptable animals are listed on The Rescue Project's PetFinder page.
Steps to Adopt:
Volunteering with The Rescue Project is a win-win. Volunteering with The Rescue Project brings comfort to the volunteer, as well as comfort to animals who need it most.
