About Us

We can save them all! – Danielle Reno, Founder

Unleashed Pet Rescue is a licensed, non-profit animal shelter founded in 2011 that works to save the lives of homeless pets and strives to improve the image of bully breeds in society.

We work daily with local high kill shelters throughout the area to pull “unwanted” pets to safety. We work to find homes for pets of all ages, health, temperaments, and history. Each adoptable pet is given the opportunity to thrive.

We are proud to say that we have created an organization that is no-kill and we will not euthanize any animal due to overcrowding. As with most other shelters throughout the nation, there is never enough space to fill the need. Because of this we partner with foster homes throughout Kansas City that help us provide a safe, comfortable situation for our pets until they can find their furever homes.

Unleashed Pet Rescue has been able to thrive because of our incredibly compassionate staff, as well as from the support of donations and marvelous volunteers. When a pet comes into our care, we know that they will be shown love and attention while they wait for their forever family.

Thousands of animals come through our doors each year. We receive no state or federal funding, meaning we rely entirely upon donations to cover our daily operating expenses. Every day our team works hard to providing a safe environment for animals throughout Kansas City.
