Amethyst, what a jewel!

If you’re a one-cat human, Amethyst might just be your girl! She’s currently staying in a foster home with Blue Skye Cat and Kitten Adoptions. But, seeing as she’s not too fond of her fellow felines, this really isn’t the ideal place for her. She’s okay with dogs, though! Just as long as they mind their own biz!

Silver Tabby Adult

Amethyst is a bit of a dichotomy. She’s just a bit skittish, but she loves to come up to you for a good loving. I tend to think maybe she was shooed away alot in her prior home. But if you encourage her a bit, she loves her loving! She definitely doe NOT like other cats, but will tolerate a calm, well-behaved dog. She would do fine with older children. She needs a loving home of her own. She’s not happy in a foster environment.

When we got Amethyst we were told she was pregnant. She wasn’t, she was just fat! So she is a little chunky, but not too chunky!

This cat’s estimated birthdate is 7/1/2008. Her adoption fee is: $50.00.

This cat is altered, up to date on shots and worming, tested for Feline Leukemia, and comes with a complimentary well exam with one of our participating vets. Without the support of our wonderful veterinarian partners, we wouldn’t be able to do the rescue work we do today!

You can visit our adoptable cats and kittens on Saturdays from noon-five at our adoption Center located at Mariposa Veterinary Center. Mariposa Vet Clinic is located at 13900 Santa Fe Trail Drive in Lenexa. Not every animal attends every adoption so always call or e-mail ahead to confirm that a particular animal will be present. All of our cats and kittens stay in licensed foster homes during the week (except for Saturday). For more information e-mail or call 913-971-0101



If you’re interested in this lovely lady (and I know that you are!), give Blue Skye Cat and Kitten Adoptions a holla!

American: An adoptable rabbit in Independence, MO
Small • Young • Male

Zorro is a sweet, social young bunny with lots of personality. He has been at the shelter for a month waiting for his new family to find him. Zorro was kept as an indoor bunny and does use a litter box. He has been spoiled by shelter staff, who often bring in carrots, strawberries and parsley for him to enjoy in addition to his regular diet. He always gets excited when people enter the room and would love to meet his new family today! If you are looking for a sweet bunny, you must meet Zorro!

Campbell, the handsome Shepherd Mix “senior.”
He’s only six years old in people years! That’s middle aged, yo!

Campbell needs a home, asap! Somehow this gorgeous, lovable guy ended up at the Kansas City Animal Shelter – and, while the staff is doing their best to keep him healthy and happy, the hard floors and metal cages are bringing him down. He’s depressed and uncomfortable and doesn’t want to spend the second half of his life alone, homeless. He deserves that much, so let’s give it to him. Whaddya say, Kansas City? Let’s find Campbell his forever home!



Shepherd Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, MO
Large • Senior • Male

Calm and cool is all you need to know. I am pretty depressed here and all I want to do is find a warm bed and some nice people who will take me in. These living arrangements are hard on a senior dog like me. Lucky for me the staff here gives me some extra attention that allows some quiet time for me. I won’t ask for much and I will be the best dog I can be. Please someone help me find a home so I can relax…Thank you!

Campbell is currently in the care of KC Pet Project and residing at the Kansas City Animal Shelter. He is over 6 years old.

Our goal at KC Pet Project is to promote the health and welfare of the pets in our care and facilitate their placement into loving homes. We hope that you will decide to start the new year with a new friend by visiting the Kansas City Animal Shelter and adopting a pet.

The Kansas City Animal Shelter is located right behind the stadiums at 4400 Raytown Road, Kansas City, MO 64129

Hours of Operation: Tues-Fri :12p-6p / Sat-Sun:12p-5p / (Closed Monday)

Find-a-Friend Friday: Lucy

March 16th, 2012 1:14 pm by Kelly



Lucy the guinea pig! This might be a Find-a-Friend Friday first. I know we’ve featured our fair share of mice and rats – mostly because I find them so darned irresistible – but guinea pigs? I’ll have to check on that. So-called “pocket pets” aren’t nearly as common a sight in shelters as are dogs and cats – but if you’re interested in adopting a smaller furry friend, it is possible.

Anyway, this is a courtesy listing via LJ’s Briar Patch in Shawnee Mission, KS. If you’re interested in adopting Lucy, please contact her family directly!



Guinea Pig: An adoptable guinea pig in Shawnee Mission, KS
Small • Adult • Female


Lucy is a very loving and sweet guinea pig. She loves to cuddle and snuggle. She is very personable and will greet you every morning with a cheery squeak. She loves to communicate. Unlike some pocket pets, she sleeps through the night? She was born February 6th, 2009 so she is 3 years old. We have had her 2 years but unfortunately my daughter has been diagnosed with allergy related asthma and we cannot keep her. We are looking for a loving forever home for our beautiful guinea girl. She has two cages, a fenced pen for indoor play time, a carrying case so she can go with you (she likes going on trips!) and all the supplies we have for her i.e. food, bedding, snacks etc. Please call if interested in this wonderful little girl.
