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.

      Kip

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Oh my dogness, look at that little nugget of cuteness! This adorable terrier mix fellow is Kip. He is a little guy at only 25 pounds. We don't know exactly what Kip's life was like before he was rescued, but we do know he is a shy and fearful boy right now. This means he is looking for a patient human willing to allow him slow introductions to new things. But that's no biggie, right? We all need time to warm up a little before opening our hearts to new people and situations. But don't worry, Kip has been working really hard on stranger introductions and is making great progress! If you have another dog, Kip would very much like to meet him or her before going home with you. He won't need pawprints or an official background check on his roomies, but it's nice to make sure everyone gets along! Kip is doing great on taking care of his business outside and housetraining him at his new home should be a breeze. He is one smart pooch. Are you a patient person willing to give a homeless pooch a little time to adjust? Show him that cuddles are a wonderful thing? Maybe teach Kip what love is all about? If you and Kip might be a match, please call or text 913-671-7387 for more information or to set up a time to meet. Kip will be patiently waiting for you.

      rescue
      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Although I'm named Lip (short for Phillip), I'm told my ears may be my best feature. Do you like my ears? I am an energetic and active guy, and a friendly one at that! I can be a bit anxious when transitioning to new places and things, and I need a home that understands that I just need some time to adjust. I tend to get more jumpy on people when I'm anxious. One of my favorite things to do is to play with toys. Rope toys and plush toys are my favorites! And playing with toys is a great outlet for my energy! I'm just not sure how I'd feel if someone tried to abruptly take them away. I'm learning that sharing is a good thing. If I share my toys then I might get something even better in return! An exchange of my toy for something of higher value is a good exercise for me to work on this. But for this reason, a home without small children is best for me. I also love to sit on the couch with a human buddy and hang out when I'm calm. Also, when I'm calm, I love to lean on my people for affection. And if you give me butt scratches that makes me have a wiggle butt! I already know some basic commands, too. I have a solid, "sit" for one! I'm also good on the leash! I've been good with other dogs, but, as always, if you have another dog, I would need a meet and greet with your dog to make sure we're compatible.To make a pet connection, call/text 913-671-7387 so you can learn more about me! Or email behavior@kcpetproject.org to make an appointment for a visit.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Tunia, like Petunia without the "pe". I came into the shelter very sick with parvo and needed emergency treatment. The amazing staff members made me all better and now I am looking for a furever home! I recently moved into a foster home so they can get to know me better. I am a sweet and silly girl who loves to snuggle and give kisses. I am young and doing well on potty training - just help me learn a routine and I'll do great! I'm also doing very well with crate-training. I LOVE toys! You know - the squeaky ones, fluffy ones and the rope kind! What are you waiting for? Hurry and call to meet me! My adoption fee includes my spay, vaccinations, microchip and a lifetime of love.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Bio: Hi two-legged, friends! My name is Bronk. Take a look into my eyes and you'll see into my sweet, sweet soul. You'll also see that my biggest dream in the whole world is to go home with a family that will love me unconditionally. I am so squishy, velvety, and lovable. When I arrived at the shelter I was so very scared, and didn't know what to do! With the help of the nice humans at KC Pet Project, I've relaxed and just want to cuddle with everyone I meet. I'm described by volunteers as "a heavenly angel of love that lives to put his head on laps and be petted." If that doesn't quite convince you, just come meet me and my mellow, snuggle bug self today. You're all I need! My adoption fee covers my neuter, vaccinations, microchip and 30 days of pet insurance. I'm waiting just for you!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Ivy is a pistol! Who wants a dog with lots of personality? As you can see by her photo she has the cutest face and is a good manageable size. She is absolutely adorable! She is one of my favorite fur babies in the shelter right now. Ivy is fun to play with, walk to the play yard and give her her favorite peanut butter Nyla bone. She is smart she knows sit, no, let's go to bed, her name and if you pat your stomach or a spot on furniture she will jump to the area. One of her favorite things to do is run, jump around with stuffed toys. Like I said, she is a pistol. A few other of her favorite things are carrots, peanut butter and Himalaya Dog Chews. Please come meet this lively little girl and give her a forever home!

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed. Guinness is a handsome young fella, found as a stray a few months ago. He is eager to please and quick to learn. He LOVES to run, play, and cuddle. He benefits from having a lot of engaging toys, such as puzzles and kongs, and will constantly surprise you with what he can do. Guinness is in search of a family who is willing to commit themselves to helping him grow. He has shown reactivity to dogs, and should be the only animal in the home at this time. His foster family is working hard to socialize him and help him be a well-adjusted companion. Guinness can be overwhelmed by crowds or lots of chaos in his home and would prefer to hang out in his crate when you have new people over. He is incredibly intelligent and happiest when he is learning new skills and using his brain. This little boy will steal your heart and be a loyal friend for life!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Hullo dahlings! I'm Circe, and as a respectable lady, I have certain views on the proper habitat for my gorgeousness. This involves unwavering servants (you) all to myself, without any other pets, so we can share all the cuddling time and adventures together. Second, a warm spot to rest on; your lap will more than suffice. Finally, luxurious accommodations-your bed of course! What things we'll accomplish with you by my side.
