KC animal shelter struggling with rising numbers

KSAL StaffJune 29, 2014

Kansas City’s municipal animal shelter has taken in more than 900 animals since the start of the month and currently has more animals than ever before, forcing it to convert bathrooms, closets, locker rooms, the basement and the employee break room to find enough space for them all.

The No-Kill Advocacy Center says the KC Pet Project takes in the third-highest number of animals among all no-kill, open admissions municipal shelters in the nation. The shelter’s director, Teresa Johnson, tells The Kansas City Star the shelter needs to be three times its current size to accommodate all of the pets it holds.

The shelter is conducting its third annual “Red, White and Woof” pet adoption event through July 6, during which adoption fees will be reduced to $25.
