On the weekend of September 8th, 2017, shelter dogs will be sent on Furlough to pre-screened homes to enjoy a weekend on the outside. They will go on walks, play ball, snuggle on the couch- whatever their little hearts desire! For that weekend, the dogs get to experience what it means to be part of a family, and families get a free test drive with a dog that may end up in their forever home.
Each dog will be sponsored for a one day Furlough. Think of it as the ultimate Dog Day Out! Your sponsorship covers all costs for the family, including a waived adoption fee, should you keep their dog. It also raises money for KC Pet Project, the largest No-Kill, open admission shelter in the Midwest. We’ll have all sorts of fun activities and giveaways planned for our Furlough families, so we hope you’ll participate in this fun event!
KC Pet Project, the 501c3 nonprofit operator of the Kansas City, MO animal shelter, is the largest No-Kill shelter in Kansas City, MO, and the 3rd largest open-admission No-Kill shelter in the United States. We are keenly focused on progressive, life-saving policies and programs and work under the motto “Solutions – Not Excuses.”
More than 10,000 pets will come to KC Pet Project in 2017, each one in need of a soft bed, medical care, nourishing food, life-saving vaccinations and hope for a home. Your support and generosity will make the difference in the life of a homeless dog or cat in Kansas City. Together, we are creating a No-Kill Kansas City.
Prizes include: Best Instagram photo tagged with #FurloughKC and Best Sponsor.
Furlough will touch every part of Kansas City. For one special weekend, there will be dogs, families, and events throughout the city recognizing our sponsors and foster families.
There will be social media contests and campaigns, local press engagements, advertising support, and web recognition to make sure your generosity to the community is seen and marks your company as one that cares about Kansas City.
Host a donation drive for the pets of KC Pet Project. Throw a party at work or at someone’s home for their Furlough pet. Post your Furlough pet through your company’s social media to help him/her get adopted. Enjoy incentives offered by our Furlough partners.
