Two decades ago, the concept of a No Kill community was little more than a dream. Today it is a reality in many cities and counties nationwide and the numbers continue to grow. And the first step is a decision, a commitment to reject kill-oriented ways of doing business. No Kill starts as an act of will.
An Evening For All Pet and Art Lovers!
No Kill Columbia cordially invite you to Art Unleashed 2014! ART Unleashed is a fun, friendly, and casual event of pet themed art in both silent and live auctions. In addition there will be delicious cuisine and spirits from local restaurants. It is an evening to celebrate our beloved pets,
and to help those in the future!

Is NO KILL Possible in Columbia?
Brent shared with us what it takes to save 90% and more of the animals in their care, and KC Pet Project accomplished this amazing feat in just 6 months after taking over the Kansas City Municipal shelter.
Be inspired by the following video, a summary of KC Pet Pet Projects mission and how they have become the 4th largest No Kill open door shelter in the U.S. and began saving 90% and more of the animals in their care. As Brent states,
"If you take the idea of shelter euthanasia off the table, it's amazing what type of ingenuity you will come up with to solve the problems that you have."
Thanks Brent for sharing KC Pet Projects amazing life saving work, and to all those who attended.
The answer is YES, No Kill IS Possible in Columbia, and KC Pet Project along with the hundreds of other No Kill agencies are proof it can be done. We hope you will join us in our mission to advocate for the homeless animals in our community whom ALL deserve a second chance, by raising awareness and educating the public we too can be a No Kill community now.
Please consider making a gift to the most proactive and successful solution to aide in reducing the homeless

No Kill Columbia was established to save pets like Dexter.
"My name is Dexter, a 4 year old Hound mixed with a Boxer. I had a family but they brought me to the shelter because they were moving. I primarily lived outdoors with a big place to call my own. I’m super friendly and a family adopted me quickly. Unfortunately, they weren’t really informed that I wanted to be outside. They crated me 9-10 hours a day while they were at work. It drove me so crazy; I tore up two crates in a week. My new family then returned me back to the shelter. I was marked as having behavior problems and was killed. I wish someone would have understood me!"
