KC Pet Project Shows Off Their Puppies at First Friday

Portions of all funds raised at the event will go toward the medical care of the pets of KC Pet Project and their “Pets for KC” campaign.

KC Pet Project’s “Pets for KC” campaign takes place during the 100K Challenge, a nationwide adoption event sponsored by the ASPCA and Rachael Ray. They are one of fifty shelters competing to save more lives between June and August of 2014 than they did last year. KC Pet Project’s goal is to save 2,498 lives, an increase of 1,000 more than they did during that same period in 2013. They are hosting adoption and community events as well as partnering with Kansas City businesses to increase awareness about the shelter. Currently, they are working to find sponsors to help cover the cost of advertising, subsidizing lost revenue from low price adoptions, and more. If KC Pet Project succeeds, they will win much needed funds in the amount of $100,000. KC Pet Project is the largest No Kill shelter in Kansas City.

Department Zero is a brand activation agency that helps client partners build and educate new audiences, promote their products and create bonds with consumers through innovative experiential, social and promotional marketing. Hosting a series of First Friday events in their Kansas City Crossroads headquarters throughout the summer, the agency aims to raise awareness and funds for local charities, support local Kansas City artists, and develop a platform for local community activation.

Department Zero and KC Pet Project’s “Pets for KC” is a free event, open to the public and all ages. The fun begins at 5:00PM. For more information please visit http://kcpetproject.org/events/ or https://www.facebook.com/DeptZero.
