Love Finds a Way

For 10 years, KC Pet Project has been saving the lives of Kansas City’s pets, which means we have a lot to celebrate!

Friday, September 30 at Loews Kansas City Hotel

On Friday, September 30th at the Loews Kansas City Hotel, join us for a celebration honoring more than 100,000 lives saved in the past 10 years by KC Pet Project and all that our organization has accomplished in the past decade.

This event will feature a cocktail hour and dinner, along with silent auction, live auction, program, and entertainment. All funds raised from this one-time event will go toward the care of the 15,000 pets that will enter our shelter this year. 

Join KC Pet Project staff and volunteers, along with members of the civic and philanthropic community, at the Loews Kansas City Hotel on Friday, September 30th, as we celebrate all that KC Pet Project has accomplished over 10 years and all that we have to look forward to over the next decade. 

Individual tickets are now available for purchase to our Love Finds a Way gala. 

Sponsorship information is available now for September’s event. Please contact Stephanie Sullens for sponsorship opportunities at [email protected] or sign up to sponsor the event by clicking below.
