    Allow me to introduce to you a wonderful organization here in the Kansas City area that helps animals in need.  
   I became acquainted with The Rescue Project through a mutual friend and I'm passionate about helping them in all they do. 


1. Tell us about The Rescue Project.
   We are a non-profit organization in Kansas City whose goals are to offer education on pet care.  Our team offers such resources as spaying, neutering, and vaccinations. We help in supplying animals with food, shelter, and most importantly, human interaction. Through our outreach trips, members trek through the city and give care for neglected animals. We educate pet owners so they can continue to improve the lives of animals in our town.
   
2. You see many conditions out there with animals in need. Can you share a few of your stories?
   Common things we encounter are a large amount of dogs kept on heavy tow chains (which can weigh 15+ pounds) that pull down on their necks. For these types of circumstances, we cut them out of these chains and provide the owners with tie-outs. We see dogs without adequate shelter (i.e. no dog house), so they're forced to face the elements. Leaving dogs outside all the time, can lead to heartworms if not given preventative medicine. We’ve seen dogs with no food or water. In the summer we see many dogs with bloody ears from bug bites, and for this, it’s as simple has hanging fly bags to keep them away.

   A specific incident over summer happened when we received a call on a dog with an unknown skin problem. After arriving at its home, we spoke with the owner who led us to the backyard where the dog lived. It was shocking to see such a young puppy with that level of mange. He had severe hair loss and covered in scabs. Not to mention the hot weather which made his itching worse. We explained to the owner that this dog needed to visit a vet; but, he didn’t have the means to give that care. Our team helped him financially and the dog now looks and feels so much better!

   We TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Release) cat colonies. We've seen colonies of up to 20 or more cats at one home. Caregivers will try to feed them, but this can become too much for one person, so we help feed and spay/neuter them to prevent more breeding.

3. For those interested in fostering or adopting, who can they contact?
   The easiest way is to visit our website www.TheRescueProject.net where the info needed to foster or adopt is available. From there you can browse pets near you that are up for adoption and fill out the required forms. Fostering is as easy as filling out a form and emailing it to mubbalifan2004@aol.com. We welcome all the help we can get!

4. How can one help if they cannot adopt or foster?
   There's a couple different ways. One can get involved and do outreach. This is where we travel around KC and its surrounding areas to supply animals with dog houses, food, flea treatment, etc. We educate pet owners on the proper care that their animals need.

   Another way to help is by donating through our website. There are specific supplies we always need (i.e. food, collars, and traps) and happy to accept. Monetary donations always go to providing food and supplies for animals, and can donate onetime or monthly.

   We hold a variety of fundraisers that people can attend or help out! There are online auctions and garage sales to which people can donate items. First Fridays in "The Crossroads," we always have a booth set up educating people on who we are and what we do. If anyone is interested in volunteering at our fundraisers, they can contact our volunteer coordinator:

Beth Meyer at NineLives7601@yahoo.com.

   To stay up-to-date on all of our events and work, people can follow our Facebook and Instagram pages.


   Thank you Rescue Project for taking time for this interview. Keep up the great work!


   I hope you will look up their page and stay in tune with their progress. Since I have became aware of "The Rescue Project," I knew I wanted to help them in anyway I could. Three of my titles, donates back to them. One dollar of each of my pet books sold, will be given directly to them. 
   As always, thank you!

I salute your mission. We should take care of our wildlife. I am a pet-lover. I own 5 dogs on my hometown. All of them are rescued dogs. My heart just melts everytime I see helpless animals on the streets. How can people afford to hurt them? They are heartless.
