If you watch my video, it will give you a good idea about my kind of fun. My hope is to find a family where the human(s) enjoy being on the other end of the cat toys. Or where we can come up with some everyday things to make toys out of. It is very important to point out though that playing is only one part of my passion for life. Another huge portion of my makeup focuses on LOVE! I just plain like to give it and receive it. What can I say? It is just my nature! Wouldn’t you like to come down and spend a little time with me snuggling and playing? We may just find that we have what it takes to make each others lives complete. Wouldn’t that be just the cats’ pajamas? Please come visit me at the Pet Adoption Center in Merriam! Love, Columbus

Hello there! My name is Annabelle. I’m a beautiful, soft, sweet natured, athletic, happy and playful shepherd mix. I weigh in at 48 pounds. As you may notice in my video, I’m a fan of playing with balls, plus I’m a fan of being with people and enjoying good food, good drink, and lots of laughter with my friends. I have many friends here at the shelter. I feel like I’ve failed miserably somehow, though. I’m not adopted yet, and everybody keeps telling me it will happen, but it has been such a long wait. I don’t know. I think that some people just don’t appreciate the beauty and athleticism that makes up me. I can jump high. You guys talk about Superman – he can leap tall buildings in a single bound. You admire him! But, I can leap over taller fences, and I just can’t get any respect for that. Heck, I’m olympic athlete material here! Ok, so the “jump and run” skill might not be the most appealing attribute in the world to all dog owners, but, just because I can doesn’t mean I WILL! I want to be with my people, so if you give me your time and attention, believe me, I’m not going anywhere! Adopters who don’t even own a fence should be interested in me! Or adopters with those underground fences might appreciate me and want to give me a home? I guess I might as well explain everything right now. I should mention(just in passing of course) that I like to chase cats, so, if you have a cat that doesn’t need the exercise, you probably shouldn’t pick me. But all the rest of you out there? Where are you in my time of need? I’m here being beautiful and loving and happy as a lark, but nobody is here to share all my love with and no one to be devoted to. I’m hoping against hope that you are looking for me and needing me. Are you? Don’t you want a super duper doll baby such as myself to fawn over and love on? Please come to the GPSPCA as soon as you can and whisk me off to your castle where I can reign as queen for the rest of our days! Hurry! Please!
Love, from Annabelle

Hello there! My name is Luke, and the first and most important thing you need to know about me is that I’m a Dock jumper! Yep! I competed in the MoKan Dock Dogs event that was hosted at the Great Plains SPCA, and I received two ribbons!! I’m so happy a staff member took me to compete! I had so much fun that I would really like to do it again next year, and the staff has all of the information for my new family! Other than that, I am the longest residing dog in the shelter. Although I’m really happy for my other canine friends that have been adopted over the last five months, I’m getting really eager to find my loving family. I love when the staff takes me out to play – I LOVE LOVE LOVE tennis balls! I would be a wonderful family dog and am house trained! Because I am athletic and curious, I need to go home with someone who has a 6 foot fence or who is willing to leash walk me outside. Also, since I am a pittie, I cannot be adopted to a city with a breed ban. I really hope you’ll give me a chance and that I find my forever home soon!! Come visit me at Great Plains SPCA in Independence!!

I am at the Great Plains Merriam Location! Come meet me today!
Shea Butter here! Don’t you just love my name? I think I’m called that because my fur is so soft sand shiny, just like a supermodel who uses those pricey hair products and makes big bucks making you jealous of her gorgeous hair. Not me, I want you to pet me and enjoy stroking my fur and if you do it just right, maybe add in a few ear scritches and chin rubs, I’ll throw in some purring for you. I enjoy getting some love from people so whatever it takes, I’m on it.
I am a pretty sassy lady and some have accused me of being bossy as well, so I might not be a good fit if you already have another kitty. It could be that I’m bored without enough to do here, or am frustrated by not being able to change locations to sunbathe when the sun moves from east to west around the shelter. Many of us mellow out when we get a home of our own and get lots of attention from humans. I know I’d be a good cat for you if you’d only have me.
I’m a pretty tabby and have a good appetite. I am a very playful and energetic girl. I have a lot of spunk and I will make you smile! I do like to play with toys and entertain myself. In a small space like I have, I need to limit myself to small mice and little toys I can push around. Out in the wide open spaces I’d enjoy wand toys and laser toys too. Why not come meet me and fall in love, and when we’re done with my paperwork, let’s stop in Metro-paw-litan Pet Supply and pick up some toys for me. All your purchases help support the shelter animals and I’d be happy camper with new stuff. Yippee!
Can’t wait to meet you – hurry!

Hi there, all you cat loving humans who are looking for a snuggly kitty…here I am, right out here at the Merriam GPSPCA adoption center! My name is Lilly and I am totally committed to giving satisfaction in the skilled affection area. If you make a lap available, you can count on me occupying it. If you have an unoccupied, bored hand, I can keep it productively busy. I am a very affectionate girl and make new friends fast. A great way to make friends with me is to give me ear scritches. They’re the best!
The staff and volunteers find me to be energetic and into chasing balls sometimes. I like to play with the plastic bags, even ran around with one over my head. I like to dig in the sacks of newspapers, secretly looking for news about what’s going on in human world. Perhaps my favorite thing of all is racing from one end of the cat adoption to the other as fast as I can. Boy, am I going to be one happy kitty when I get a new home of my own to explore.
Then other times I’m a total couch potato and would make a great cat just to keep you company. If you like a cat to snuggle near you as you watch the big game or a tearjerker movie, I’d be great for that. Then when you’re feeling frisk
y, we can play together – you roll the balls for me, I’ll run them down for you and make you laugh.
I get along well with other cats which is why I get to be a free-roamer. I’m out of my cage strolling around making friends with everyone who comes in the adoption room. I am polite to all creatures, four legged and two legged. I even get along with small children who sometimes have outdoor voices and quick movements. Those scare some other kitties, not me!
So long as you provide me with the simple basics (food, water, litter box, playthings, love), I’ll give back everything in my power to make you happy that we are family. I’m a pretty low maintenance kitty. No fancy cat bed required, for example. I love to curl up and nap in the box of clean rags in the housekeeping room. My toys are all very cheap things like you find in the recycling bin, plastic bags and newspapers. I’m all the cat you ever need, for love and companionship. Come see me soon, pretty please?
