kc mega match

Kansas City’s biggest adoption event is back.

The KC Mega Match started on Friday.

KC Pet Project and Great Plains SPCA locations, along with Wayside Waifs and the Lawrence Humane Society will be open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

On Sunday, they’ll be open for adoptions from noon until 6 p.m.

All the pets at all of those locations can be adopted for just $25, which includes a spay or neuter, vaccinations, and a microchip.

Many of our local shelters are at or near capacity. At the KC Pet project, they took in 72 new animals in 48 hours.

“We have hundreds of pets that are looking for homes and we’ve had so many come in this week,” said Tori Fugate, KC Pet Project’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “At KC Pet Project, we are at crisis capacity. We really need to move some animals out this weekend.”

This weekend, there are multiple locations where you can see hundreds of available dogs and cats:

  • The Great Plains SPCA locations in Merriam, Kansas and Independence, Missouri
  • KC Pet Project and Wayside Waifs locations in Kansas City
  • The Lawrence Humane Society in Lawrence, Kansas
  • Seven Petco locations in the metro area

All local shelters involved in the KC Mega Match hope to reach their goal of 1,000 pet adoptions this weekend.
