The KC Pet Project Story

Brent Toellner is the president and co-founder of the Kansas City Pet Project (KCPP) and author of “KC Dog Blog.” He started working for animals by doing rescue, followed by advocacy work fighting breed-specific legislation. Previously, he was the legislative chair for Kansas City Dog Advocates, a group that focuses on pet-friendly legislation on the local level.
 
In July 2011, he and several others formed KCPP to bid on the contract to run the Kansas City, Missouri, pound — a place where, for decades, more animals died than were saved. Since KCPP took over in January 2012, adoptions have increased by more than 100 percent. KCPP’s live release rate has exceeded 90 percent for more than two years while remaining an open-admission shelter, making KCPP the third largest open-admission, no-kill shelter in the U.S.
 
Brent writes a blog (KCDogBlog.com), which shares new information about the fight against breed-specific legislation and the shelter’s ongoing no-kill journey.
