It was just three days ago, that yet another urgent list was sent out. The shelter is full again, people are surrendering their dogs, animal control is seizing dogs from abandoned homes and yards. The KCMO shelter is only built to hold so many dogs, so here we are again, reaching out trying to save lives and move dogs for space. 18 dogs made the list and these dogs aren't bad dogs, they didn't ask for this, they have no idea their days are numbered. The shelter environment is just not the place for them. Some may have slight aggression issues, some have just too much energy for staying in a kennel all day, some have medical issues and need more care.
I was sad to see my Hansel on that list and it didn't take 20 minutes to decide that he was coming home with me. He is doing fine with my dog and getting the attention he needs. And then there were 17. I can't tell you how amazing it is to see so many wonderful people pull together to save these dogs. People networking on Facebook, rescues that are already full still taking in dogs, people opening up their homes to foster or calling on friends to adopt. It has been so wonderful to see these dogs make it, but there are still just 5 more left!

but can be a bit pushy with other more mellow dogs. We have been able to introduce her to some dogs while others she’s been too overstimulated. She needs a slow introduction to other dogs.
