Rescued Animals Need Foster Homes

For area animal organizations with a "no-kill" policy, keeping their charges sheltered, fed and socialized  strains available resources.  Fostering programs temporarily place dogs, cats and other animals with qualified people until a forever home can be found.


Additional organizations in need of foster homes:

  • KC Pet Project, in addition to needing foster homes, is waiving adoption fees August 22-23 to make room for additional animals at its area locations. They are also holding an inaugural Furlough event, where families can foster a dog for one weekend September 11-13.
  • Wayside Waifs at 3901 Martha Truman Rd. KCMO
