Adopt a pet (Jan. 1)

Bella Courtesy of Kansas Humane Society

Bella the Goofball, a 9-year-old female Labrador retriever mix, is available for adoption from Kansas Humane Society.

Hi, friends! At my age, I never would have thought that I’d be on the hunt for a new forever home. But you know what they say: “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade – in your new home.” I’m pretty sure it’s something like that. I have a beautiful brindle coat that will make people “ooh” and “aah” when they see me. And I’m a loyal, loving dog, so come see me at KHS today.

Also available:

▪ Rex the Goofball, 4-year-old male Labrador retriever mix

Hey, everyone! I was born with an awesome front leg, so it makes me a particularly special guy. I am vigorous and active, and there is nothing that can hold me back. I have a positive attitude and plenty of determination. Come meet me at KHS to see for yourself.

▪ Mozart the Go Getter, 2-year-old male American pit bull terrier mix

You can tell just by looking at my picture that I have a ton of love to give. I’m anxiously awaiting my forever home, and I’m starting to wonder if it’ll ever appear. Everyone here at KHS is amazing, but I’m ready for a normal routine and a home. Let’s be friends. Come visit me at KHS.

▪ Rupert the Personal Assistant, 4-year-old male cat, domestic shorthair mix

How do you do, good person? I am applying for the position as your personal assistant. This guy knows exactly how to be with you and how to help with whatever activity you’re engaged in. I can push the keys as you type, hold the paper down while you read, and keep your lap warm during those meetings. If you think I’m the ideal candidate for this job, come visit me at KHS and check out my resume.

▪ Cindy the Secret Admirer, 3-year-old female cat, domestic medium-hair mix

Hey, you. Yeah, you! I noticed that you noticed me. That’s because I was noticing you the entire time. I’m a Secret Admirer, and my job is to carefully watch over you to make sure nothing bad happens. I have to look out for my owner because I’m a loyal feline. Oh, and there will be no shortage of purrs, head-butts and lap time. Come on down to KHS so we can get acquainted.
