The observance encourages current and future pet owners to commit to being responsible for their loyal hound. Being responsible protects not only the dog but all those who may be affected by him, too. Dogs bring many benefits to our lives. Ensuring they remain healthy, happy, and safe is a vital part of our job as dog owners.

The pawsabilities for excellent pet care include:

veterinary care
training
grooming
exercise
proper disposal of waste
identifying household risks and dangers
acceptable socialization
registration according to local and state ordinances
We need to be on the lookout for their well-being and the well-being of those around them. It may come as a surprise to many how much care dogs require. Keeping them healthy and safe includes many considerations. Their size, energy, medical care, temperament, and many other needs are the dog owner’s responsibility. Often, dogs bring unexpected expenses. We need to be prepared to make decisions regarding their care when illness or injury occurs, too.

We've had a great week of adoptions with a total of 10 kittens and cats adopted since last weekend. Today we had 3 more adoptions.

Tuxy, a darling grey & white tuxedo girl stole the heart of a gal who came to look at another cat. Sometimes they really do pick you! Tuxy will live with a 7 year old Yorkiepoo who seemed to really like her when they met today.

Oh so handsome Azul gets to live with this teenage boy who seemed so smitten with his new kitten. Azul will also have a 9 year old mini golden doodle as a sibling.

Finally Yuffie, another beautiful grey girl found a home with a young couple who were so excited to take her home. We heard they plan to rename her Shady.

What great success for our kittens, cats and foster parents. Thanks for choosing to adopt!

We had a fourth adoption late on Saturday. Sweet, but timid brown tabby Finn found his forever home after having to experience being surrendered by his first family due to allergies. He was confused but caught the eyes and hearts of a couple who have adopted from HAHS in the past. They were thrilled to find Finn who fit so well with them. Hooray for Finn!

08/25/2021

We didn’t get a photo but perhaps Kratos’ foster mom will add one to show how cute this orange tabby is. He was adopted as a companion to Artie who was adopted from HAHS two weeks ago. We always say 2 kittens are always great together!

Looks like Everly will have lots of fun with human brothers and a cat sister. Have a blast together!

General information

Many of our animals are cared for temporarily in the "foster homes" of volunteers. This gives us the ability to build a history with them, observing and evaluating their behavior and traits outside of an intimidating shelter environment. That foster knowledge helps create a better match between an animal's personality and the home situation of a new owner. Animals available for adoption can be found either in our Petfinder.com listings, visited during the week at selected pet supply stores, or seen first hand at rotating, weekend "Adopt-a-Pet" Events. #petadoptions #catadoptions #dogadoptions #HAHS #HAHSKC

I’m so glad we adopted Fila. She is just the sweetest dog ever! More pictures to come!!
Hello, I am caring for a cat that was surrendered by its owners. He is very affectionate, friendly and a gentleman in my home. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, litter trained and likes kids...also, he likes my 21 year old doxie, but he would really like her to play with him. Please consider helping me find this guy his forever home. I am not sure how he is with other cats, mine want nothing to do with him
HELP!!!😳 I had a young stray or dumped kitty that had 3 kitten's on my porch!! I had put a box with blankets out for her because it was going to be cold out. Three day's later she gave birth to 3 kitten's! I live in a complex and the kid's in the area found out about her! So guess where she is now?! In my bedroom! I have 2 male (neutered) cat's that she immediately attacked! Although this is normal I can't take a chance on one of my guy's getting hurt! So she is locked in my bedroom! She is a very good momma and is very loving! I can't keep her!!! I could risk losing my place! If any of you animal lover's know of someone that can help foster her I would be forever grateful!!! I have tried many organization's!! Everyone is full or beyond capacity!! If you can't help physically...you can help by being an advocate for spaying and neutering!! I have to deal with this because someone got a warm fuzzy feeling when they saw a kitten and took it home! Kitten grows up and gets pregnant and she is disregarded. Never make a permanent decision from a temporary feeling!! In this case it wasn't permanent for whoever took her in. Just a temporary thing...eh... no big deal...we can just trash it if it is inconvenient. Ugghhh....
Fifteen and a half years ago we adopted a 6-month old "mutt" from you. It was one of the best decisions of our lives. He got to be pampered, live with a lake in his back yard, go for many walks, to be loved by many, and especially by me. A few weeks after his 16th birthday on June 1st, he went to his rest. Thank you for the work you do for animals and their families.
***last seen running East on 75th and troost on Saturday at 9 AM.** **if sighted, don’t chase or call his name. Contact me ASAP*** Missing dog: Otis, Shepherd Mix, 2 yr male, 55lbs. Last seen in Waldo (78th/Main St) around 9 AM on 11/16/19. Microchipped but not wearing collar. Please call 816-868-1842 or 901-483-9126 if found.
A few days after adopting Star, he's loving his new home and we're loving him. He's a big snuggle bug. Now, we're considering giving him another friend to have around the house. Hoping to adopt another soon. Thank you Beth and Erin for helping us find this special guy.
She is going to be spayed this Thursday! ALL MEDICAL EXPENSES PAID FOR. Just needs a forever home. I cannot help all animals. But this little life crossed paths with me, and I can change her world. Please help me find a home! :)
This happy ending for a lost cat perfectly illustrates how micro-chipping your pets can help recover a furry friend. Micro-chipping is inexpensive and easy to have done. Be sure to keep your contact information current with your chip company.
Excited to announce an upcoming fundraiser to benefit the Heart of America Humane Society. Join us for a fun event and come away with a keepsake of your own pet painted with love by you!
