In January 2009, the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City (HSGKC) embarked upon a venture to partner with Kansas City, KS Animal Control to save the city shelter's pets before their time was up. We never imagined that together we could save so many of them. Since its inception, the Ray of Hope program has saved the lives of thousands of pets.

Credit for that goes to KC Pet Project’s successful adoption program. Thanks to donations that a city-run shelter would be unlikely to garner, the nonprofit group has added two satellite adoption facilities — at Zona Rosa in Kansas City, North, and inside Petco at 95th Street and Quivira Road in Overland Park. - The Kansas City Pet Project officially took over the Kansas City Animal Shelter at the first of the year

In 2009 we partnered with The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, volunteers, no-kill rescues and shelters, and breed rescue groups. The Ray of Hope program significantly reduced euthanasia in our shelter, saving thousands of pets. Our partnership includes transfers of pets to no-kill groups, spaying and neutering of all of those pets, weekend satellite events, and distributing information on low-cost spaying and neutering to the KCK community.

Our partnership with Kansas City, KS Animal Control saves and improves the lives of dogs and cats at the city shelter. Our veterinary staff provides the medical care for pets at the KCKAC shelter. Pets who are seriously sick or injured are transferred to us for more extensive lifesaving care. Every weekend, our volunteers conduct satellite adoption events with KCKAC pets at the PetSmart in Olathe, dramatically increasing the number of adoptions for the city shelter...Paws Crossed is a section 501(c)3 no kill foster-based rescue group based in the Kansas City, Missouri and Johnson County, Kansas metro areas. We are dedicated to rescuing pets left homeless, in high euthanasia shelters, and those in danger of abuse and neglect. We assist pets without regard to age, breed or ease of placement to the extent our finances allow, with the pets in greatest need taking priority. Animals in our care are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and provided additional veterinary care as needed. Our animals are placed in foster homes where they wait for placement in a permanent home. Paws Crossed, Inc. strives to place pets in loving and committed permanent homes through a comprehensive adoption process which includes educating prospective adopters about costs and responsibilities associated with bringing a new pet into their home as well as finding a good match for both the pet and the families.“This is a big challenge for us, trying to run a modern animal shelter out of a building that’s very inadequate and really aging,” said Teresa Johnson, CEO of Kansas City Pet Project, which manages the shelter for the city.
