Adopt a pet (Sept. 10, 2016)


Alexander, a 4-year-old male domestic shorthair cat, is available for adoption from Kansas Humane Society.

Hello. I’m Alexander — like Alexander the Great. I’m just as handsome and regal looking, don’t you think? With my sleek black coat and bright eyes, I look like a miniature panther. Actually, I think I must have been a panther in my former life. I’ve got mad hunting skills and can catch any string toy you’ve got. But I’m also a sweet guy that would love to be your feline friend. Come hear my purr at KHS.

Also available:

▪ Freckles, 9-year-old male cat, domestic medium-hair

I am one fat cat. Not like “fat” meaning “cool” — I am actually quite large. That just means there’s more of me to love. Right? I’m like a real live Garfield, if you think about it. Plus they gave me a cool spot to hang out in here at the shelter since I’m too big to fit comfortably in the kennels. I’m a pretty friendly guy. I like to lie next to you and head-butt you until you give me some attention. I also like to just chill off to the side and observe what is going on outside. My digs here are pretty cool but I’m really looking for a home of my own. Maybe I could move in with you? Don’t forget to bring an extra-large carrier. There’s a lot of love filling out this body.

▪ Ichabod, 1-year-old male chow chow

I’m what they call a “busy bee” here at the shelter. I’m naturally playful and curious. I like to be on the move, so you can usually find me sniffing out a job to do. I’d gladly lend a paw if you need help around the house. After my job is done, I’ll curl up on the couch with you and cuddle. And, honestly, who wouldn’t want to cuddle with a handsome, furry guy like me? Come by and visit me soon. We’ll talk more about it.

▪ Jerry, 1-year-old male Labrador retriever mix

My foster mom says I’m a great dog. I had a little cold when I was at the shelter so a nice family took me in until I’m feeling better. They say after a couple more days of antibiotics I’ll be good as new. They waived my adoption fee so you can take me home for free. My foster mom even picked out a cool toy to go with me once I find my fur-ever home. I’d like to find someone who loves to play as much as I do. Maybe it could be you. Call the shelter at 316-524-9196 and set up a visit with my foster family today. I’ll be waiting for your call.

▪ Fruity Pebbles, 3-year-old female pointer/American pit bull terrier mix

Wheeee. I’m Fruity Pebbles and I’m a super duper fun-lovin’ gal. I love to PLAY. They call me the “Life of the Party” here at the Kansas Humane Society because I’m always bringing a smile to people’s faces. And with a face like mine, it’s not hard to do. I just greet everyone with a big wiggly wag of my tail and then flash ’em my signature smile. Works like a charm. Now if only I could charm someone into giving me a home of my very own. I’m part of the Lonely Hearts Club here at the shelter, which means I’ve been waiting a while for someone to give me a second chance. But I’m not giving up, I just know someone great will come along and we’ll be best friends forever. Do you need a friend? I’ll be waiting for you at the Kansas Humane Society.
