About Purrfect Pets: Purrfect Pets is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue and adoption agency, dedicated to helping orphaned cats and kittens in need throughout the greater Kansas City area. We rescue hundreds of cats each year from shelters and the general public. In July 2015, Purrfect Pets opened a brand new adoption center inside the Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas. This new space features a shopping boutique (all proceeds directly benefit our cats), a kitten room, an adult cat room, and plenty of space where visitors can watch and visit with the cats in a bright, fun and upbeat environment.


About HELP Humane: HELP Humane was incorporated in 1996 and established a foster/rescue/adoption program in our own homes. In 2005, we opened our true no kill shelter in a rented facility. In December 2012, we purchased our own building and moved in. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a brick and mortar facility! We specialize in cats and many special needs cats that were turned away. Seniors, diabetic cats, disabled, Feline Leukemia and FIV+ cats but many many highly adoptable cats also. Our shelter is innovative in being free roaming rooms for people to directly interact with the cats for adoption.


About KC Pet Project: KC Pet Project is a 501c3, nonprofit charitable organization operating the Kansas City, Missouri Animal Shelter. As the largest No Kill animal shelter in Kansas City and the 3rd largest open admission, No Kill animal shelter in the United States we care for more than 10,000 animals a year and work collaboratively with Animal Control and other animal welfare organizations to increase the number of homeless pets adopted, and focus on lifesaving programs promoting pet retention, identification, lost pet reunions, and pet ownership education throughout the community. We operate several adoption centers across the metropolitan area, including our Zona Rosa Pet Adoption Center, a Pet Adoption Center in the Petco store at 95th & Quivira, and have additional cats and kittens available for adoption in 4 other local Petco stores, including 75th & Metcalf, Independence, 136th & Stateline, and in Olathe, KS. The KC Pet Project is creating a No Kill Kansas City – we’re passionate about lifesaving!

Rose Brooks Center offers a 24-hour crisis hotline and 100-bed shelter, along with therapy and counseling for adults and children, housing assistance, economic and employment advocacy, as well as an on-site pet shelter to keep the family together.  More than that we are changing the way our community responds to domestic violence and supports survivors.  Through partnerships with the local courts, hospitals, schools, and law enforcement, we are working to end the cycle of violence through advocacy and education.  In 2012, Rose Brooks Center became the first domestic violence shelter in the region to welcome four-legged family members to Rose Brooks Center's Paws Place.  Dozens of families have not been forced apart thanks to Paws Place and thanks to our supporters.  Through the help of generous supporters we are able to provide food, vet care, and a Pet Advocate so that the Paws Place is warm and welcoming place for all our animal residents.
