Find-a-Friend Friday: Marla

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.

 

Marla
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.

Whiskey, what a doll! (Not really.)

There are so many ridiculously adorable dogs available for adoption at Kansas City Kansas Animal Control (Case in point? Nala! See also: Tucker, Rachel, and Ophelia.), but Whiskey caught my eye for the simple fact that he shares a name with one of my favorite characters in the Whedonverse.*

Plus, he’s cute as all get out. Just look at that happy smile and those bright eyes!

Bruce
Shepherd/Rottweiler Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Male

Bruce is a very handsome, very smart, affectionate 2 year old Shepherd/Rottie mix. He is eager to please but does need some obedience training and a home without small children. He has shown some signs of food aggression, most likely because he had to defend his food from other dogs prior to arriving at Animal Control. Bruce needs a patient and loving home.

Petfinder is acting a little wonky today – hopefully because oodles and oodles of people are bombarding the site in hopes of adopting a nonhuman (or two or three) in time for the holidays – so if you have trouble viewing Bruce’s listing, wait a few seconds and try again. (Worked for me!) Or just get in touch with the KCK Animal Control directly. Dog bless!
