May 16, 2012 – Kansas City, MO
Team up with a partner who knows what it means to serve during the first annual “Pets for Vets” adoption event on May 19th and 20th at the KC Pet Project! The Kansas City Pet Project, located at the Kansas City, Missouri Animal Shelter, will host the event this weekend in celebration of Armed Forces Day. All active duty, reserve, veteran, National Guard personnel and their families are invited to attend.
Festivities for the weekend will include:
- 1/2 price pet adoption fees for military families with a valid military ID. Adoptions include spay/neuter, deworming, age appropriate vaccinations, and a microchip. Pet licenses for city of Kansas City residents will be available for purchase.
- The Magical Meatball Tour food truck will be on site to feed everyone.
- Pampered Paws will be on site to offer grooming tips and Pet Junkie will be selling great pet-themed merchandise.
- Donations will be accepted from our shelter wish list – and much more!
“As a ‘thank you’ to all of the men and women who are either serving or have served, the Kansas City Pet Project is very excited to host this great pet adoption event” said Teresa Johnson, Director of Shelter Operations of KCPP. “This is also an opportunity for people to come out and see all the wonderful things that are happening at the KCMO Animal Shelter.”
