Hi I am Molly! I am a beautiful, young American Staffordshire Mix that loves to play! I love going on walks and runs. It’s a great way to drain my energy and plus, I love the fresh air! I love all people – young and old – but I have been known to be a little jumpy and mouthy when playing, so I would thrive in a home with older children that can handle my excitement. Learning new things is a exciting task for me. I already know how to sit for treats, but I want to learn more! The more I learn, the better I will behave! Come by and see me today, pretty please? I can’t wait to show you how smart and beautiful I am!

Hi, I’m Lacy! I am a very sweet girl, but I am a bit shy and can get nervous sometimes. I would prefer a quiet home where someone is with me all the time. I just don’t like being alone (can you bla
me me?). However, I am the best girl in a home. I am a lover and I’ll be your shadow if you let me! I am house trained. I am such a sweet girl with so much love to give! Come meet me at the Great Plains SPCA Merriam Campus today!

Hi, I’m Mary Lou!
Who couldn’t love a cute little brown tabby like me? I get lots of compliments on my pretty markings and my sweet kitty smile, and I love the attention! But what I’d love more is to find my forever family. My ideal home would be
a little on the quieter side as an only cat, but cat-respecting human kids would be no big deal! I just love to have all the kitty attention on ME!
Though most people can’t tell right away, I’m actually a hoot! Whenever somebody puts a chair in front of my kennel to allow me to jump down and have a walk-around, I fool them. I jump down on the chair all right, then on top of the kennel and have my walk-around up high. I’m a tree climber by temperament, so would love it if we could have one of those cat towers where I could climb up high and feel safe and look out on all my world.

Just give me a little extra time and patience to get used to everything when we go home, as I am shy with new people. I would be such a wonderful kitty and best friend for you! Even better if you’ve got a sunny spot by a window for me! Please come visit me today. I want to go home!

Love, Mary Lou

Hey guys (and ladies)! I am Brutus. I am a 2 year old American Staffordshire and Mastiff Mix. Crazy combo, don’t you think? There is one thing that you need to know about me. I love lasers! I go nuts for them! Show me a laser and I’ll be a friend for life! I love to give kisses and please you however I can. I already know to sit for treats, and I have an adorable way of giving you a high five…or maybe I should say a high TEN! I’ve been waiting patiently at the Great Plains SPCA Independence Campus for my forever family since November – I know they are out there, they just haven’t found me yet! The perfect family for me would be one without any other animals. I want to be your one and only snuggle monster! Come meet me at the Great Plains SPCA Independence Campus today!

XO, Brutus

Woof Woof! Hello, I am Silly String! I am such a good boy and handsome too! I am a happy boy and my tail never stops. I know some commands and I take treats so nicely. I am good on a leash. I love to go on walks and explore Silly-Stringoutside. Give me a tennis ball and I will be your best friend – some people say I could be a really great agility dog because I can jump and fly through the air for a tennis ball!

I am a lover. You can’t help but smile when you see me! I am a great family dog. I make the best noises so you’ll be laughing all the time. Come meet me at the Merriam campus of Great Plains SPCA!

PrintDru is an energetic dog and would work well in a home with an active lifestyle. She loves to go for long walks or jogs and she does great with car rides. She is very smart and learns commands quickly. She’s housetrained and knows over a dozen different commands already! Dru has many wonderful qualities that will melt your heart. She likes children and can be very gentle. She plays well with medium-to-large sized dogs and would do well in a home as a second addition. She is quite the cuddle bug and loves to share kisses. Our certified trainer is eager to help Dru settle into family life and is willing to assist with any further training at no additional cost. Great Plains SPCA is committed to being a life-time resource of support for Dru and her new family. Dru has breed characteristics resembling a pit bull which may limit her to communities free of breed bans however, we can assist you in working with your City to get her adopted as each individual municipality is the final decision maker. Help make Dru’s dream a reality! Share this post and help our sweet Dru find her way home.

My name is Katniss and I volunteer… to be your best friend! I’ve been at the Great Plains SPCA Independence campus since June… waiting patiently for my forever family. I am very athletic and smart, too! I would do great with someone who likes to walk, maybe jog, and teach me lots of cool tricks! I already know how to sit and shake – and you can teach me a lot more because I am treat motivated! I enjoy a delicious peanut butter kong and other tough toys. and I am full of smiles and enthusiasm for all my favorite people! Do you want to be one of my favorite people? Come meet me today!

Baby 3** Baby is a courtesy listing for a very special partner of Great Plains SPCA – Judy Moore of Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort in Belton, MO. Judy has been a wonderful partner for Great Plains SPCA, boarding dogs at her facility at no cost and helping two of our special adoptables find forever families. Baby has been fostered by Judy for the past 18 months
and is ready to find her forever family – so we agreed to help Judy (and Baby!) like she has helped us in the past! **

I am Baby with Angels Left Behind Rescue in Belton, MO – nobody puts me in a corner! Watch my video and you will drool over my good looks and personality!   I have never, ever had a home to call my own. I went from being chained up outside to living at Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort in Belton, MO for the last 18 months – waiting ever so patiently for my person(s) to come for me.  Judy (my foster mom) at Man’s Best Friend has been fabulous to me.  I am able to play with dogs every day and gets lots of lovin’ from the staff, which has prepared me well for my future forever family!

I know I will take to home living just like a duck takes to water! A volunteer took me home once to check out my home manners and I passed with flying colors! I loved the car ride, running around in the backyard, and relaxing inside watching TV and cuddling.  My two passions are people that are 14 and older and dogs.  But, I can be the only dog too.  I simply ADORE people (men and women equally). I am fun and playful.  I am sweet and cuddly.  I have excellent manners.  So, what are you waiting for?

Contact my foster mom at so we can meet.  Don’t delay – you hear?  Sit down at your computer right now and email my foster mom!  I am so anxious to meet you!

Lots of kisses,
