KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Buying a certain type of beer from the Boulevard Brewing Company will now put money in the hands of three local charities.

The company will donate 10 percent of local sales of its KC Pils to a variety of hometown charities.

The first charities chosen to benefit from the Kansas City-based brewery are Kansas City Care Clinic, the American Jazz Museum and the KC Pet Project.

Each time someone buys KC Pils, a portion of that money will go to one of those three charities.

A little puppy is recovering after he was hit by a car. The husky's two front legs are on the mend thanks to Kansas City's animal shelter the KC Pet Project.

"We see a lot of pets coming in," said Tori Fugate, manager of marketing and development for the Kansas City Pet Project.

Many of the abandoned pets have mange or other diseases that need medical treatment. The costs quickly add up for the shelter.

Soon, anyone who buys KC Pils from the Boulevard Brewing Company could help pay those medical bills.

"All of the money that we take in as far as donations will go directly toward the medical care. So heartworm treatments, treating a dog or cat with broken limbs, hit by a car, mange, you name it. Litters, puppies, kittens we take in everything," Fugate said.

At the end of September, customers can vote to pick a winner between the three charities to receive the largest portion of the money raised.

"Sixty percent of the proceeds go back to the winner. Twenty percent each goes back to the other two charities," Fugate said.

Fugate said they are grateful to be one of the first charities to benefit.

"We feel if we can provide that care and treatment to them that we will do it and get them into a permanent, loving home eventually," Fugate said.

Voting to choose which charity will receive the largest portion of the funds will begin on Sept. 20 and end Sept. 30.

The whole process will start again for the next quarter when three new charities are chosen.
