About Us

The Rescue Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to building trustful relationships with people and their pets and improving the lives of animals living in under served Kansas City communities. We provide basic survival items such as food, water, flea/tick prevention and dog houses for needy animals. We offer low cost veterinary resources and emphasize the need to spay and neuter. We also provide community education/awareness to the public on responsible pet ownership and empower people to make a difference.
In the last 12 months we have provided:
Over 20,000 lbs of food to animals in need
100 Dog houses
240 Bales of straw
Thousands in gasoline and auto expenses
Provided love and kisses and treats to thousands of animals, for many it was the first affection they had ever received.
I am sure you have all seen pictures of mistreated and abused animals. Animals that live their whole life on a chain, without water and food for days at a time. No stimulation whatsoever. The Rescue Project has an outreach program where our volunteers go to the inner city looking for these abused animals. We provide counseling to the owners. Provide food, treats, dog houses, flea and tick treatment (and some much needed loving) etc. They then follow up to see if conditions improve. You would be surprised how many people respond to the counseling. You probably wouldn’t be surprised at how many don’t. If abusive conditions continue, the owner is asked to surrender the animal or face being reported to animal control and being ticketed and fined. We also offer low cost veterinary services and of course, empathize the need to spay and neuter. Our selfless volunteers are out in –5 degrees to 105 degree weather to make sure these animals get the quality of life they deserve.
No one at The Rescue Project receives any compensation. 100% of your donation goes directly to helping provide food, medical care etc.
This is just a fraction of the services and help The Rescue Project provides. Please help us meet our goal so we can continue to help our animal friends
