Mall Closing: Purrfect Pets Evicted - AGAIN!
Purrfect Pets is a non-profit, no-kill cat shelter and adoption center in the greater Kansas City area. After 11 years in the Metcalf South Shopping Center, we were forced to relocate last summer when that mall closed for redevelopment. Less than 6 months after moving into our new space at the Great Mall of the Great Plains, we're being forced to move again because of yet another mall closure.
We now have less than 3 months to find and build out a new space, and we are in desperate need of funds to help us do so. This is the second massive blow dealt to our small, non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization within one year, and absolutely devastating to the cats and kittens in our care.
Purrfect Pets invested so much time, money and effort into renovating a former retail space in The Great Mall to build proper cat runs, private rooms, and two beautiful open play areas. Our cats and kittens have never been so comfortable, or so happy to be able to run free. Unfortunately, we were hit with this debilitating mall closure bombshell while there was still helium left in our “Grand Opening” balloons!
Simply put, WE HAVE NO MONEY LEFT to move in such a short period of time, not to mention the extremely difficult task we will be undertaking to find a suitable, PERMANENT place—one that allows cats, and above all, is affordable for us in the long term.
Purrfect Pets is a volunteer-based organization that relies exclusively on donations, adoption fees and fundraisers to sustain our day-to-day operational needs.
So we ask you to please assist us by donating any amount you can—our beautiful, loving cats and kittens have nowhere to go, and worse, we have nowhere to care for them without your help. Purrfect Pets has truly fallen victim to circumstance, and our situation has become critical in a very short time.

Pearl: Purrfect Pets was totally blindsided by this and they need all the help they can get! If there is anyway you could donate even a little bit, the kitties there would be extremely grateful! Can you also spread the word about their situation? Thank you!
