Well, it's about time I introduced you to more of the poor homeless kitties and doggies at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City.  If you could adopt one of these guys, it would be a super nice thing for you to do.  Or if you know somebody else who could adopt one, that would be good, too.

PEACHES is the sweetest little old dog ever, and she has very funny ears!  All she needs is a warm lap to sit on for a few more years. She is about 12 years old, weighs 7 pounds, and is probably a dachshund--rat terrier mix.  Peaches is house trained, but you do have to make sure she gets out on a regular schedule.  She would like a quiet home, and she is fine with other dogs and with cats.  Her adoption fee is only $50 because of her being a senior dog.

BELLA is a 9-year-old Maine Coon Cat.  When she was younger, she was adopted from the shelter by a couple who now have a baby.  It turns out that Bella doesn't like kids, so the people brought her back.  Bella can be a little shy until she gets to know you, but then she's a very nice girl.  And she gets along well with other cats.

JOE JOE is an Australian Shepherd mix who is 6 months old, and he will probably weigh about 50 pounds when he is full grown.  Joe Joe is black and tan, and he has a very soft, pretty coat.  He is a friendly, happy puppy, and he likes to play with other dogs.  Sadly, Joe Joe got hit by a car before he came to the Humane Society, and one of his back legs had to be amputated.  But he gets around just fine on 3 legs, so don't let his missing leg keep you from adopting him!

PINKY is a cute little tabby kitten.  She is about 7 months old, and she is very playful.  There are lots of kittens about the same age as Pinky at the shelter, so if you want one in a different color or gender, you can probably find it.

DUCHESS is an 8-month-old Doberman mix, and she will probably weigh about 50 pounds when she is an adult.  Like Joe Joe, Duchess got hit by a car, but her leg could be saved.  She has a little limp in her right back leg, but you might not even notice it, if you aren't paying attention.  Duchess likes to run and play, and she gets along nicely with other dogs.

TOODLE BUG is a friendly, playful kitty who is one year old.  She had a littermate who was a tabby, and the littermate already got adopted.  But it's harder for black cats and dogs to get adopted, so Toodle Bug is still waiting for her forever home.  It's almost Halloween, so wouldn't this be a good time to add a lucky black cat to your family?

NUTTER had parvo, but he's all better now.  He weighs about 40 pounds, but he is still a little thin after being sick.  Nutter is a shepherd--beagle mix, and he is one year old.  He is very sweet and he loves to play.  He is treat-motivated, so it would be easy to train him to do all sorts of fun things.

STELLA is another Maine Coon Cat.  She is 2 years old, and she only weighs 8 pounds, even though she looks bigger because of all her hair.  Stella gets along fine with other cats, and she would very much like to have a home of her very own.

So anyway, these are just a few of the wonderful pets available for adoption at the Humane Society.  You can go to the website, if you would like to see more pictures and read about a whole bunch more cats and dogs that you could adopt.


  1. This is a great blog and a very important one!! I hope those reading this will RUN to the Humane Society to adopt a pet or as you stated tell someone who wants a dog or cat!! I have two cats I adopted from the Humane Society, and wish I could adopt more!!

  2. I forgot to mention that I like the new "look" of your blog...fall colors, etc., Piper, you are sooooo artistic! :)
    Love, AP

  3. Dear Aunt Patty,
    I hope you are right about everybody running to the Humane Society to adopt cats and dogs! Some of my best fans live in other parts of the country, though, and they might not be able to come here to adopt animals. But maybe they can adopt from their own local shelters.

    I'm really glad you like my new blog look. Mom helped me a little bit, but mostly I designed it all myself!

    Love, Piper
