Whenever I hear the name “Marla,” I think of Marla the virgin on Seinfeld. Also: Marla Rose, long-time activist, talented writer, vegan feminist agitator, and just all-around kickass human being. So when I saw Marla’s adorable face – complete with seemingly stenciled-on eyebrows, also a la Seinfeld – on Petfinder, I knew instantly that she’d be this week’s Friday Friend. Marlas rock, okay? So let’s get this girl adopted!

Marla is currently a ward of the Kansas City Kansas Animal Control; to meet her, you’ll need to go to one of the city’s satellite adoption events. Keep reading for the deets – and please share, even if you’re not in the position to adopt right now.


Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Young • Female

11/2/12: Marla is a cute little Heeler mix. She’s very sweet natured and attentive– she’s ready to please!

Marla is friendly and good with other dogs. She’s energetic so will need regular exercise. Another dog to play with would be great for her. She is about a year old and weighs 38 lbs.

Come meet Marla in Olathe at our weekend satellite adoption events! We’ll be at the Olathe PetSmart at 119th & Strang Line Road. You can contact us to see which day Marla will be coming or to make a request.


Our dogs have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and dewormed. The adoption fee for males is $62 and for females it is $72. If you live in the city of Kansas City, KS there is an additional $10 fee for a city license.


We have satellite adoption events every Saturday and Sunday at the Olathe PetSmart at 119th & Strang Line Road. We may have a second satellite adoption location on Saturdays, too. Visit our Petfinder home page for more information on this weekend’s events. If you’d like to request that we bring a particular dog to one of the events this weekend send an email to

These adoption events are part of of our Ray of Hope partnership with The Humane Society of Greater KC, which has significantly reduced the euthanasia rate in our shelter. For more info on the Ray of Hope program, visit the The Humane Society of Greater KC web site.
