Every pet deserves a home and every home deserves a pet.


At CritterHouseKC, we specialize in finding foster homes and providing care for dogs in some of the most challenging situations, ultimately finding them permanent homes with loving families. We take in mamas and babies, pregnant dogs, orphaned puppies and those with a variety of special needs. We also have the opportunity from time to time to pull dogs released from commercial breeding facilities into our system. These pups require a special skillset to transition them from a life of breeding to life as a treasured family member.


CritterHouseKC was born from a collection of volunteers who have served the greater Kansas City area rescue community for decades. We understand the needs of area canines and potential adopters alike and bring a fresh perspective to the art of connecting the right pet to the right home.


Further, our great veterinary partners and our relationships with other rescue groups throughout the region allow us to offer low-cost adoptions after providing spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccination and microchips. 

We are a licensed, privately-funded, 501(c)(3) organization whose generous donors and adopters are saving lives daily.
