Demand Action Against Reported Animal Neglect Amid Heatwave

Target: Mayor Quinton Lucas, Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri

Goal: Increase resources for animal welfare to prevent reported neglect and abuse during extreme heat.

The sweltering summer heat in Kansas City has reportedly led to numerous incidents of pets being left exposed to harsh conditions without adequate water or shelter. KC Pet Project, a local animal shelter, has been inundated with calls about pets left in dangerous heat. On a recent day, their team reportedly rescued a red Doberman that had been left chained in the sun with no water, highlighting the urgency of their work.

Ryan Johnson, Chief of Animal Services at KC Pet Project, reportedly emphasized the deadly risks posed to animals left in the sun without water. The organization conducts routine wellness checks throughout the metro area to protect pets from heat-related dangers. As temperatures rise, the demand for their services increases, with more calls about dogs left outside in the heat.

KC Pet Project not only rescues animals but also employs a team of animal cruelty investigators. They work with pet owners to ensure compliance with city regulations and urge the public to report any signs of abuse or neglect. Sign below to demand the mayor use his influence to impose stricter regulations on animal abuse, to assist these investigators, and to provide more resources to protect vulnerable animals.
