The Story.

Innovator(s)

Our employer is KC Pet Project, a nonprofit charitable organization operating the KC Campus for Animal Care, Kansas City, Missouri’s animal shelter. They care for more than 10,000 animals each year and focus on progressive programs to help people keep their pets through lost and found services, Keep ‘Em Together, KC program, and pet safety initiatives like microchipping, pet identification, and more.

Problem

Our goal is to reduce the count of dogs in the shelter and educate pet owners on pet handling and care.

Solution

We would like to make subscription boxes filled with materials, necessities, and information about how to train and care for your pet. We call it the K9 Care Kit. This is an effective way to help users and pets have a stable connection and prevent dogs from returning to the shelter or being stray.

Target Market

Dogs who arrive and are currently in the shelter.

Societal Impact

Our solution will have an impact on users now and in the future because it will be a type of awareness and healthy lifestyle for their pet.

Next Steps

Our next step for this mission to become a reality is buying the materials needed.

Reflection

It has taught us about trial and error, as well as being innovative.

Use of Backer Contributions

We are not currently accepting contributions from our voters. This pitch is part of the ProX competition for $5,000. The funding will make this into a real product for the shelter.
