OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Purrfect Pets is falling victim to redevelopment plans at Metcalf South Mall in Overland Park. Mall executives are giving the cat adoption center until July 3 to move-out, creating a financial hardship for the business that's been at its location for 11 years.
"We have looked at some options but we're finding rents that are double and triple what we've been paying for 11 years," PurrfectPets Fundraising Director Jeff Todd said.
Now, Johnson County's only no-kill cat adoption shelter and adoption center is asking the public for help.
"We have two programs for people to make a donation," Todd said.
The first program is called, Sponsor our Lease and the second program is called, Friends for Felines. Donations to both programs will help reduce the cost of rent and pet-care. The shelter has about 30 cats at any given time at the shelter; over 11 years, they've adopted over 3,000 cats.
If you would like to help the shelter with added expenses you can visit their website or call 913-333-7557.
To help raise awareness of their need for donations, there will be two free concerts at Zona Rosa Mall on June 27 and July 25.
