February 20th was National “Love Your Pet Day” and Minsky’s liked the idea so much we decided to stretch Pet Day into Pet Week! We love our pets, and we know our customers do, too, so Minsky’s teamed up with KC Pet Project from February 20 to February 26th to help save neglected animals from all over KC! Minsky’s customers entered the online code KCPet1, Minsky’s donated $1 of their check to KC Pet Project! Minsky’s was proud to be able to donate over $400 to KC Pet Project during “Love Your Pet Week”!

KCPP still needs your help to “Raise the Woof!” The former “dog pound” with euthanasia rates of 60-70% was taken over by KC PetProject in January of 2012.  KC Pet Project turned the shelter into the 3rd largest open-admission “No-Kill” shelter in the United States. The current shelter is too small and very outdated. If you’re a resident of Kansas City, MO be sure to stop by the polls on April 4th, 2017 and vote YES on question three!

Minsky's PizzaIf the improvements to public buildings passes, KC Pet Project can build a bigger and better animal shelter to handle the demand for near term shelter and care for abandoned and mistreated pets in the metro area and help achieve their mission of finding “forever homes” for these great animals. Click here to learn more about the history of the shelter and to find out more information about the upcoming vote on April 4th!
