Pets of the Week


Leela is a super fun and friendly Pit Bull mix. She only weighs 39 lbs and she is 2 years old. She had an eye injury and had to have her right eye removed. Leela is extremely loving and affectionate. She's very playful and energetic. She'd be a good jogging or walking partner and will need a home where she'll get exercise.

Leela gets along well with dogs but she's a bit choosy. She would probably do best with another dog who is her size or bigger, and playful. If you have a dog, we'd ask you to make arrangements to bring your dog to meet Leela to make sure they get along. She does need a home without cats. She likes to chase little critters, and she would be happy to help chase the squirrels out of your yard!

Leela has jumped the 4 ft fence at our shelter but not the 5 ft fence, so a privacy fence would be ideal for her or a home with someone who's active and could take her for long walks or jogs. She loves to go for car rides and rides nicely in the car. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. She was a stray. She's a sweet girl and will be a fun and loving companion.


Oswald is a darling little 4 month old tabby kitten with gorgeous markings. This little guy was found on I-35 by one of our staff members on her way to work— lucky for him! He was actually in pretty good shape, considering. Oswald has been fostered by our staff member since then. She says he's basically the perfect kitten! He's friendly and playful. He loves playing with their kitties, he plays with dogs and is totally comfortable with them. Check out the video to see him playing with Eddie the Boxer. Oswald's also not at all timid with their friends who come over. And he's fine with kids.

He does sound pretty perfect!

Oswald has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. Please submit an online adoption form if you would like to set up a time to meet him.




Paris is an adorable 8 year old Yorkie mix. She's very friendly. Her foster mom says she loves to curl up on her dog bed with a blanket, or better yet, to lay on the couch with her and cuddle. She has Spondylosis — arthritis in her spine — so that's why she's not overly active. She's on Tramadol for it currently which has really improved her condition. Her foster mom says the Spondylosis doesn't keep her down, and Paris loves life and she's still pretty playful. Paris also had to have her eye removed because of a birth defect— it never developed fully and was causing her discomfort.

Paris gets along with other dogs and will play with them as long as they aren't too rough with her, and understand that she likes to be the boss! She lives with other dogs in her foster home. She is food possessive towards others dogs, but not with people. She is working on house training, and just has occasiional accidents now. She wouldn't be a good match for a home with young children due to her Spondylosis.

Paris was originally at KCK Animal Control after being picked up as a stray. She was severely matted and flea infested. We transferred her to our shelter so that we could provide her with the medical care she needed and find her a home. She's been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms… and ready for her new home!

Please submit an online adoption form if you would like to set up a time to meet her.
