Find-a-Friend Friday: Lokey

For this week’s Friend in need, we’re going a little north of Kansas City – as in, aaaallllll the way up to Smithville, Missouri. (My exaggeration is deliberate. The husband and I live up there, you see!) Katty ShacK is a feline rescue group based north of the river; it’s here you’ll find dear Lokey, a cute little guy in need of a home. Preferably before the Christmas holiday, so he doesn’t miss out on gifts of catnip and scratching posts!

Lokey
Tabby – White Mix: An adoptable cat in Smithville, MO
Large • Adult • Male

Lokey is a young adult, a little lanky right now. Will be a big beautiful guy when we get a little weigh on him and on a good diet. He is a loving guy, talks a lot in the morning! Found hanging around a barn, this tame and loving guy deserves a better life.

The KattyShack is located in Smithville, MO. The KattyShack is open on weekends for potential families to come and meet the cats and kittens. Before coming however, the adoption application needs to be completed and e-mailed to kattypeggy [at] aol.com.

More about Lokey
Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained

Visit Katty ShacK’s Petfinder page to find out more about this special guy, or to view the other cats and kittens currently available for adoption.

Saturday Garbage Plate: Happy Hanukkah!

December 4th, 2010 7:48 pm by Kelly


vegan Hanukkah potluck

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, we’re launching right into the festive, vegan x-mas (and Hanukkah!) NOMs. I hope you like gingerbread, peppermint and soy nog, folks – ’tis the season, after all!

Also, the latest edition of The Scoop – Spay & Neuter Kansas City’s quarterly newsletter – is now online! Read or download a .pdf copy here.

I don’t have much else to share this week; criFSMas chores – not to mention the conclusion of veganmofo – have pretty much consumed all my free time. (Sigh.) So just check out this answering machine recording of my 90+-year-old grandmother chatting with one of my brother’s high school teachers a few years back. She was shocked – shocked, I say! – to learn that her youngest grandson had been forging his mom’s signature on early releases in order to cut class and go to Taco Bell.

Scandalous!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Dana

I searched through quite a few heartbreaking listings on Petfinder

(So many recent puppy mill rescues! And yet, the Missouri state legislature is threatening to repeal Proposition B, a law recently passed by MO voters which would provide some basic – albeit still grossly inadequate – protections for dog bought and sold for breeding purposes. Tell ’em NO THANKS here.)

before finally settling on Dana, a gorgeous Shar Pie mixed breed girl who thinks cats are awesome….for chasing and eating, that is.

Dana has been with the no-kill rescue Autumn Acres for some time now, and due to a heartworm infection and subsequent sub-par treatment, has wracked up thousands of dollars in vet bills. Please consider bringing this lovely girl home for the holidays – or making a donation, however small, towards her care if you can.

Dana
Shar Pei Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

We have had Dana in our program for over 2 years now. She really needs a home!! Dana is an alpha dog. She will try to rule the house and because of that needs a firm owner. Dana is NOT good with cats but is good with other dogs, kids, and horses. Dana knows how to sit, is crate trained, and housebroken.

Dana was spayed, vaccinated, and ended up testing positive for heartworms. She was treated for the heartworms but had an adverse reaction to the first shot and for some reason the vet still gave her the second shot 3 days later(she was being boarded at the vet during the time) he called us up at that point to tell us that she wasn’t doing very well. We rushed her to Columbia because she had air outside of her lungs…don’t know what its called but you could see air bubbles in her chest as she breathed. It was a long ride to Columbia but we got there. She was put into an oxygen cage and stayed there for over a week on several medications. The bill for Columbia alone was $1600. We are looking for a sponsor for Dana. We haven’t done this sponsor thing before but after having Dana for 2 years we think maybe we should start ;-). Please be kind enough to sponsor Dana. If you own a company and want some advertisement we can place a link to you’re business when we list Dana as Sponsored by…

Please sponsor Dana! For $25 a month you are helping to cover her dog food and her medical bills, past and future!

Pet ID: 40767 • Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Prefers a home without: cats, children under 5 • Special Needs

Likewise, Kasha and Darla could use a little love and a few new friends, too.

Dog bless you for adopting!
