KC Pet Project “Shed Some Pounds” $50 Adoption Event

Kansas City, MO – Is your goal to lose weight in 2013? Help the KC Pet Project "shed some pounds" at the shelter by adopting a new workout buddy to help you with your New Year’s resolution! The animal shelter is at capacity -- so they’re offering a special $50 dollar adoption fee for all dogs 50 pounds or more from Friday, January 11th through Sunday, January 20th. Plus, every adopter gets a FREE city license (KCMO residents only) and a free microchip with every adoption. Your adoption fee also includes the spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a deworming and 30 days of free Shelter Care pet insurance.

There are more than 350 dogs awaiting homes through the KC Pet Project and many of them are currently great medium and large breed dogs, including Labrador Retrievers, Boxers, Shepherds, American Pit Bull Terriers, Bulldogs, and a variety of Herding breeds. And our on-staff certified dog trainers can help you find the perfect dog for your lifestyle.
