Samba is like the dictionary definition of cuteness. Soft, tiny, furry, playful – and clumsy, too! CLUMSY! Do kittens get any more adorable than this? I think not.

Quick! Adopt Samba before someone else does!

Small • Baby • Female

“Samba” can be best described as a clumsy little kitty with an eye for awesome toys and an affinity for trouble. She loves baskets, balls, string, and just about anything that could be remotely fun to play with. She’s still very young, so introducing her into a cat-friendly-dog environment may not be completely out of the question. She’s a furry little go-getter with the spunk and sass to prove it. And if you’re considering adopting saucy little Samba, make sure to check out our profile on her sister “Tango” as well. Keeping the siblings together would be ideal for anyone willing to take on double the fun!

Talking ’bout Marty, y’all!

Marty is a middle-aged gent who’s hard of hearing. That’s okay though, ’cause he’s smart (smart like a dog!) and is learning hand signals. You can talk to him in doggie sign, how cool is that? Impress your friends and improve Marty’s quality of life all in one!

Marty’s being cared for by Kansas City Sheltie Rescue until his new human comes along. If you think that might be you, you can meet Marty most weekends at the Petco on W. 75th Street in Overland Park. Keep reading for the details!

Marty came to rescue from a local shelter where his time was up. He is small, active, and our vet thinks around 8 years of age. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped and has had his canine flu shot. He has some hearing loss and is learning to function using hand signals. He is smart, affectionate and pretty active for a dog of his age. He is working on house training. Email us if you can make Marty a part of your life.

We require a secure fenced yard, we do not accept “invisible” or electric fences. We will check your fence. All our dogs are spay/neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm tested and on prevention, on Flea & Tick prevention and microchipped. Dentals are completed as needed.

Time for a montage! A LILLY montage!

Lilly is a tiny little lass from Texas who was saved from a high kill shelter by a good samaritan at the last moment. Now she needs a forever home, so her foster parent can save more of her canine brothers and sisters. Step up maybe? You’ll get plenty of love, affection, and devotion in return!

Adorable little Corgi Shepherd Mix Dog needs a home

This is my newest foster, Lilly. I rescued her from a high kill shelter in Fort Worth, TX the day they were going to euthanize her for being “Too fearful/shy”. She is the sweetest little thing who just wants lots of love & attention. The vet estimates she is between 4-7 years old & she has been spayed, micro-chipped & is up to date on all of her shots. She has short stalky legs like a corgi but a shep face. I would also say she is around 15lbs. as far as her personality goes she is so sweet & affectionate & just all around willing to please. She loves to play fetch with her ball & go for walks & when she’s ready to chill, she prefers the cushions on the back of the couch.

The only bad thing I have encountered with her is that she is possessive of her food & toys with my other dog which I am sure is probably a product of her being in a shelter for over 2 months. That’s why I listed her as preferably going to a home with no dogs/children or to someone who was willing to work with her on that.

She also loves to run & is super fast (I seriously witnessed her on the tail of a rabbit & you know how fast those things are!). The volunteer told me that she would keep running if given the chance so she would need to be on a leash outside or in a fenced in area. She is also potty-trained as long as you don’t leave her in too long. I think that’s about it.

She needs a permanent home where she will be spoiled like she deserves! Message me if you are interested in meeting her. 🙂 re-homing fee: $50.00

This dog is a Courtesy Listing and is not actually fostered through T.A.I.L.S This dog is located in kansas city, mo If you would like to meet this dog please email me at

Peter sounds like the cutest, sweetest cat there ever was. How he ended up homeless is beyond me. Why don’t you liberate him from the Liberty, MO Animal Shelter, hmmm? (See what I did there?)

Peter is the best, cutest, happiest, sweetest cat in all the world! He knows his name, and when you can’t find him, you need only trill, “Peterpeterpeterpeter!!!!!” and he comes running! He loves food and treats and loves to be scratched on the head. If Peter sounds like the cat for you, come down to our animal shelter to meet him! If you like cats, you will most certainly love him.
