Brookside Real Estate Partners with KC Pet Project this Summer!

This summer, when you buy or sell a house with Brookside Real Estate, we’ll make a $100 donation to KC Pet Project!

We know what a monumental moment it is to buy or sell your home. This summer, when you buy or sell a home with Brookside Real Estate, your life-changing decision will not only affect you, but also the lives of animals in the care of KC Pet Project.

Caring for over 10,000 animals a year, KC Pet Project is the third largest no-kill, open admission animal shelter in the United States. With each home bought or sold by Brookside Real Estate this summer, a $100 donation will be given to help provide medicine, veterinary care, vaccines, food and resources to help KC Pet Project save a record number of pets who have nowhere else to turn.

To kick off this exciting and meaningful partnership, Brookside Real Estate Company’s Owner and Broker, Jim Kraus recently presented an initial check for $1,000 to KC Pet Project’s Chief Communications Officer, Tori Fugate.

“We’re very excited to be partners with Brookside Real Estate Company this summer. A donation program like this definitely impacts our organization. This $1,000 kickoff donation will help us provide life-saving vaccinations for 40 new pets coming into our shelter, which is the average number we intake on a daily basis.” – Tori Fugate

With KC Pet Project’s main adoption center currently located in a 50-year old reconverted storage shed, Brookside Real Estate could not be more excited for KC Pet Project’s groundbreaking new Kansas City Campus for Animal Care opening later this year. The facility, located in Swope Park at the corner of Gregory Boulevard and Elmwood Avenue, will be one of the premier animal sheltering facilities in the United States.

“KC Pet Project’s programs and services are making history in Kansas City. This new, beautiful facility is exactly what the staff and pets deserve! We’re especially excited to help Kansas City pets find their fur-ever homes.” – Jim Kraus

To promote this partnership with KC Pet Project, Brookside Real Estate is promoting the donation program not only on the website and in social media, but also in the above billboard located on the corner of Wornall Rd and Gregory Blvd.

Said Brookside Real Estate Company’s Owner and Broker Jim Kraus, “KC Pet Project is a great organization – and we’re definitely a group of pet lovers here at Brookside Real Estate. And, as Realtors, we spend a fair amount of our day thinking about houses and homes. It just seemed natural to help KC Pet Project in their mission of finding forever homes for our four-legged friends. After all, a house truly becomes a home with the addition of beloved pet.”
