We treat every animal in our care as though it were our own. 


Purrfect Pets is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue and adoption agency, dedicated to helping orphaned cats and kittens in need throughout the greater Kansas City area. We adopt to Kansas City and immediate surrounding areas only. ​We rescue hundreds of cats each year from shelters and the general public.

In August 2022, Purrfect Pets opened a

brand new adoption center inside the

Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas.

This new space features a shopping boutique (all proceeds
directly benefit our cats), two cat rooms,
and plenty of space where visitors can watch and visit with

the cats in a bright, fun and upbeat environment. 

Elaine K. Doran, a life-long animal advocate, founded Purrfect Pets in 2003. 


Her belief is that every cat has the right to a caring, safe and permanent home.  Elaine hopes to improve the lives of both pets and people in our community by promoting the humane treatment of animals.

- To promote the well-being of cats by educating people about compassion towards animals and responsible pet guardianship.

- To support other rescue organizations, so that together, we can help save lives and share the vision of no more homeless and unwanted pets.

​- To reduce pet overpopulation by promoting spaying and neutering.



We found our beautiful, sweet, smart, and funny kitty at Purrfect Pets. We can't imagine life without our Sadie! She's a part of the family.

We love our two rescued cats from Purrfect Pets. Lainie and Fluffy caught our hearts and it's been so much fun ever since!
