KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Pet Project will waive adoption fees during their “Draft a Dog event” to celebrate the NFL Draft.

The one-day event on Wednesday, April 26 will include each of its locations – KC Campus for Animal Care, Zona Rosa Adoption Center, Petco Adoption Center in Overland Park, as well as dogs from foster homes.

Adopters will go through the same process as they would to pay for the adoption fees.

Kansas City, Missouri, residents will need to purchase a city license before adopting a dog.

“Our space crisis continues at KC Pet Project with more dogs coming into our shelter than are leaving,” chief communications officer at KC Pet Project Tori Fugate said in a press release. “In the spirit of the NFL Draft happening this week in Kansas City, we are hoping to find homes for so many deserving pets. We have nearly 300 available dogs at KC Pet Project that will be available to meet new families.”

Future dog owners can visit the KC Pet Project website for hours of operation and to see all of the dogs available for adoption.
