Birthday Party

We are now offering in-person birthday parties at the KC Campus for Animal Care in one of our private event spaces!

Birthday Parties 

Our packages start with your child and party guests can take a tour of the KC Campus for Animal Care, where you’ll see behind-the-scenes of our team caring for the pets at our shelter. Plus, you’ll get to see many adorable adoptable animals! Our staff will make your child’s big day special! Bookings begin with a $225 donation to the support the mission of KC Pet Project. 

Adoption Birthday Parties

For a $350 donation, in addition to the tour of the public areas of the shelter where you get to see our pets looking for homes, you’ll do a treat making activity, and up to 10 guests will have get to select and adopt their own plush pet. The Adoption Birthday package comes with choice of a plush cat, dog, kitten, bunny, or small animal, a carrier box and an adoption certificate for up to 10 party guests. Additional plush pets are available for $10 each. 

To inquire about birthday parties, please email Alex Ayala at the button below or call 816-683-1347.

A maximum of 20 attendees will have 2 hours in one of our beautiful Education Pavilion spaces with 30 minutes before and after for the hosts to set up and clean up

Party goers will be given a tour of the public areas of the shelter and, if requested, will participate in a treat or craft making activity for the animals.

If you are interested in collecting donations for our shelter pets at your party, we are more than happy to provide you with our Wish List and most critically needed items. Also, the family of the birthday person will receive 10% off of an adoption fee or 10% off of their room rental for hosting their party at the campus.

Snuggle Service

A snuggle service package can be added, when available, for an additional fee and if puppies and/or kittens are available at that time.


You may bring any food and beverages of your choice and will have access to our catering kitchen, refrigerator, and prep area. A warming oven is also available for licensed caterers. We will have tables and chairs for use, but please plan to provide all of your own decorations, table wear, and paper goods/utensils. 

Any decorations for the room must be pre-approved by a KC Pet Project team member.

The party fee of $225-350 must be paid no later than 14 days in advance. All proceeds from the birthday party program go toward the care of more than 14,000 pets we serve each year.
