Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Ruby Sweet is calm and affectionate. She loves attention and likes to lean in for hugs. She has a playful side that comes out after you spend some time with her. She walks at a leisurely pace on leash and loves to investigate her surroundings. Ruby is 55 lbs and just over 3 years old. She has participated in shelter playgroups and was a little fearful of the other dogs at first but is now warming up to playtime. As always recommended, please bring your dog along to meet before adopting to make sure it is a good fit.  Staff will help set up a dog to dog intro while you are at the shelter. Adoption price includes spay, microchip, deworming, current vaccinations, 30 days of pet insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Need a great friend in your life? If so, meet me, Phoebe! I am a blonde 7-year-old lab mix gal who weighs 56 lbs. I was surrendered to the shelter when my previous family got divorced. I don&#39;t really know what that means, but I guess it means that I lost my family and home. I had lived in my previous home for more than 6 years after coming from a friend of the family, but now I need a true forever home. <br/><br/>In my previous home, I lived both indoors and outdoors, and I was left alone for 14-15 hours. I was either free in the home or in my dog run. I would like a home where I&#39;m not left alone for so long. I am a good girl, but 14-15 hours is too long to hold it. I am reported to be housetrained, though. <br/><br/>When I warm up, I really like to play. I like to jump and wrestle and play &quot;keep away.&quot; And I LOVE squeaky toys, especially squeaky balls! I also walk very nicely on the leash, and I know the commands &quot;sit&quot; and &quot;stay.&quot; Oh, and I LOVE treats. I bet I could learn a lot of new things with the help of treats! I am able to jump a 3-foot fence, but I haven&#39;t actually chosen to do that in a really long time. <br/><br/>I will admit, I&#39;m a bit unsure of small children. Older children may be best for me, but if you have small children, please bring them to meet me with the rest of the family. I&#39;d also be better in a home with no small animals or cats. If you have another dog, please bring your dog to meet me so that we can be sure we can be friends. <br/><br/>Please come meet me at KCPP. I&#39;ll be there for you...waiting to meet you.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I&#39;m Josie! I&#39;m a one-year old pit mix looking for my forever home. I&#39;m full of puppy energy and love playing with my 80-pound foster dog brother, my other two smaller foster dog sisters (when they can tolerate me) and my foster family. I also have a foster cat sister but I am not that interested in her. I&#39;m a very agile and energetic girl. I am still learning to be the best dog I can be, so I&#39;ll need someone who is patient and willing to work with me on good manners and training. I think I would fit best in a home with at least one other dog because I love to play and I take good cues from them regarding the rules of the house. After my puppy energy runs out, I&#39;m calm and want nothing more than to snuggle as close to you as I can get and sleep the hours away. You&#39;ll probably fall in love with my loud exhales letting you know how much I appreciate you giving me a safe home to live in... When I was brought to KC Pet Proejct, I was in pretty bad shape - starving and sick. The vet said I could only take 3 steps before collapsing and they were worried I wouldn&#39;t make it through the night. They nursed me back to health and now it&#39;s as though I never went through that ordeal! I am very treat-motivated, but hey, what dog isn&#39;t? I can get a little spooked by loud noises and unfamiliar events, so I&#39;ll need a dedicated safe space in your home that I can find shelter in if I need to (at foster mom&#39;s house it&#39;s the queen sized bed in the bedroom!). Even though I had a rough start, I am full of love and silliness and will keep you entertained for hours!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Samsara and I am looking for my forever home! I am a super sweet 10 year old pit mix who loves going for walks and napping on the couch all day long. I walk well on the leash on my normal routes, though I do tend to pull when there is another dog around or if I am in a new place. I like to play in short bursts and get very excited about playing tug and chasing squeaky toys. I also love treats and my doggie bed, though I prefer to snuggle up on my foster mom&#39;s bed at night! I know all my basic commands and would be happy to show them off for you. I don&#39;t enjoy being around other dogs, so I have to find a home where I can be the only dog to soak up all the love from my humans! I am generally fine around cats, though. I absolutely love people, snuggling and getting lots of back scratches. In fact, my foster mom says I&#39;m just a big ol&#39; lover, so if you are searching for the perfect companion, look no further!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Hi there! My name is Lilly and I am a sweet senior gal with a lot of spunk! I love my people and playing with my toys! Do you think you have room for me in your home and heart? I get so excited when I see my human friends and want to cover them with kisses! As always, if you have a canine friend already and you think that we could be pals, be sure to set up a meeting with the staff before we all go home together. I know several commands and can&#39;t wait to show them all off for you! My adoption fee covers my spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test.

      Breed: Rottweiler-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed. If you have read any of the books Carl The Good Dog, you already know how wonderful a Rottweiler can be! Garber is a Rottweiler Mix with the typical Black/Tan markings of a Rottie. He is about 4 years old and just a big ole baby. He is very loving and you can see he will lean up against your leg for affection. Garber is a strong dude and likes is walks but needs some work on leash manners. As staff/volunteers approached the front of the kennel Garber held still for them to leash him. He walked calmly down the isle to the door leading outside slightly pulling on the leash. In the yards he explored everything and showed no interest in treats, but he jumped in my lap when I sat in a chair. He appears to enjoy human interaction as he would wander off to sniff something, then come straight back and rest his head on my leg or lean on me if I was standing. When another dog entered the yard area he kept loose body language but began barking and pacing, after a few minutes he came back to rest his head on my leg. Garber walked calmly back to his kennel and went into his kennel with no issues. So far he doesn&#39;t seem to be into toys, but I bet a big raw hide would get his attention. Please come meet Garber, he is craving a fur-ever home and a buddy! Garber&#39;s adoption fee covers vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of pet insurance - remarkable for a dog like Garber.
