Kansas City’s animal shelter, at 4400 Raytown Road, has again been inundated with dogs and cats from a hoarding case, and it is seeking the public’s help.
The shelter’s managers said the facility received nearly 20 cats, six large dogs and about a dozen birds Friday from a repeat hoarding situation.
“Kansas City Animal Control had been monitoring the situation for a time and deemed it necessary to seize the animals in their best interest,” KC Pet Project said in a news release.
The majority of the cats are not socialized and are being evaluated by the shelter’s medical and behavioral staff.
Shelter officials said all the cats will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated. Officials are working to place the cats in outdoor or barn homes across the state.
The shelter is requesting donations of unscented, clumping litter; dry and wet cat food; bird food and financial donations. A donation fund for these animals can be found at kcpetproject.org/donate/sponsor-a-pet.
In a separate effort, the shelter will host a special adoption event from noon to 5 p.m. July 4 at the shelter, which is near the Truman Sports Complex.
All cats and dogs will be available for $25. All adoptions include spay/neutering surgery, vaccinations, deworming and microchip.
