"There’s a hefty price tag to show for it: The public-private partnership is getting $18 million from the city (appropriated via GO KC bond funding) and $10 million from private donors."
Now, let's not forget . . .
KC PET PROJECT PROMISED TO HELP RAISE THIS CASH BUT SO FAR HAVE COME UP EMBARRASSINGLY SHORT!!!
Nearly four years later their fundraising site reveals they have only raised 21% ($206K) of one million bucks with NOBODY at 12th & Oak holding them accountable for the MILLIONS they owe.
Real talk . . . Anybody but middle-class white ladies skipping out on that kind of EPIC DEBT would be locked up and not celebrated by Kansas City media.
Take a look as most MSM is afraid to even mention their broken cash promises of this group:
Eight years ago, 70% of the animals that came into Kansas City, Missouri's animal shelter were euthanized. "It was dreadful," Kansas City Councilwoman Teresa Loar said. "It was a death camp." But after the nonprofit KC Pet Project took over shelter operations in 2012 and converted it to no-kill, attitudes began to change, she said.
