SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY PET PROJECT DEBUTS NEW DIGS WITHOUT PAYING CITY HALL BIG BUCKS THEY PROMISED!!!

This bit of Sunday news is mostly fluff with one important passage buried under accolades for doggies . . .

"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:

KC Pet Project Leaving Its Crowded, Noisy House Behind When New Shelter Opens Jan. 1

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.

Why would anyone in or associated with KCMO government be held accountable. That's just fantasy.

Yes but SLie James and his sidekick Troy Schulte scored big smiling selfie image points with this.


Raise the Woof.... Woof Woof!

Maybe Waddell and Reed can kick in some spare change.

I would much rather support innocent creatures who can’t help themselves than to keep throwing money at pointless causes like 18th and Vine.

^^^^ Or a Downtown Baseball Stadium for a collapsing Team.
Or a never-profitable mess like the P&L District.
Or an unusable Streetcar system.
Or FREE Parking Garages for Developers (who get to charge you to park there).
Or more damn Hotels when we can't reach 65% occupancy in those we already have.

Just like the deal City Hall made with the Union Station project and the company only had $50,000 . This is why you can't trust City Hall with spending
they don't hold developers and other accountable .

I'd like to euthanize the person who decided to build on that spot. 100 year old trees and a Frisbee golf course where destroyed. There were many other locations within Swope Park from which to choose.

Cleave skipped on his debt and he is not locked up.

3:39, EXACTLY! And Carwash Cleaver’s debt was for personal gain. At least this is for a non-profit organization.

1:18 it was a black thang, they didn’t want a bunch of scary and mean frisbee playing white people in THEIR Park.

But wait till about a month after Christmas when all the koloreds start dumping their Christmas puppies because they don’t like them or don’t want to take care of them anymore, swope has always been a dumping grounds for those people.

Really need someone to do some more digging behind this. Heard there was inappropriate lobbying and money passed under the table between KCPP and Loar. Look up their 990's, removal of some board members. But also the lack of transparency in 990's for the committee over the KC Campus for Animals non profit group. Just all very suspicious. There are a lot of big names on that executive committee. Did they all chip in and if so.. SHOW ME THE MONEY!
