An Annual Fundraising Night full of Entertainment, Beer and Love for all the Pets

Winter Rescue Bash was created in 2014 as a 30th birthday celebration by New Friends Photography in collaboration with Beers Paws, to raise money for KC Region animal rescues and to bring awareness to the community about pets who are in-need. It has grown every year since. The first four events combined have brought in over $15,000 and this 5th year we want to match and exceed the first four years total.  

The evening consists of entertainment, loaded raffle baskets, limited edition “I PAW KC” shirts (all proceeds are given to the shelters), Beer Paws, Stockyards Brewing Beer, and more to be announced.  We would not be able to help as many homeless pets without the support of our attendees and companies that donate.  

We can’t wait to see you on December 14th!

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.


The purpose of the Kansas City Pet Project is to facilitate the placement of homeless pets into suitable homes; to establish and maintain an animal shelter for Kansas City, MO; to maintain associated procedures which promote: the health and welfare of pets in our care, prevention of unplanned litters, pet retention and reunification of lost pets to their owners; to increase public safety by addressing issues related to irresponsible pet owners and dangerous animals. We are keenly focused on optimal lifesaving and creating a No Kill Community in the Kansas City Metro.
