Pets of the Week


Estelle is a very sweet natured senior German Shepherd mix. She's around 10 years old and she weighs 50 lbs. She's super mellow and she loves to relax and nap on a comfy dog bed. She is house trained, but she's a senior so she does need to go outside more frequently, so a home with someone who is home a lot would be ideal. Estelle gets along well with other dogs. She'd do well with another laid back senior dog. She also gets along well with cats.

Estelle was a stray and was picked up by KCK Animal Control, and then transferred to us. She looked like she'd had a rough life, We gave her a dental and removed a large skin tumor— nothing serious. She was already spayed. Estelle does have a grade 2 heart murmur and is in the early stages of myxomatous mitral valve disease (a cardiac valvular disease). However, she is without symptoms at this time and doesn't need any meds. Her blood work-up looked good. Because of her age and low activity level, it's possible that it may not affect her, but we couldn't say for certain. Here is a link for more information about MVD.

Estelle is currently on a diet of Science Diet Z/D. Her skin was in bad shape when she came to us and has cleared up a lot, but we're seeing if the Z/D will take care of it completely. She has also been vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. She's looking for that special someone who's willing to open up their heart and home to a very sweet senior who's had a rough life.


Nala is a lovely senior cat looking for home to retire to and spend her days relaxing. She is 10 years old. Nala is a sweet girl and she's very calm and loves to lounge. She's a big purrer and she likes to be petted. She also likes to rub up against your face and arms. Nala lives in our volunteer room and keeps busy doing desk work... which means reclining all day in her cat bed on the desk, in various comfortable poses.

Nala tolerates the dogs who visit in the volunteer room as long as they leave her alone. But she'd prefer not having any canine or feline brothers or sisters. She would do best in a quiet home with an adult or two, no young kids, and not a lot of chaos.

Nala has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. She also had a dental.




Atticus is a fun-loving and friendly 10 month old Pit Bull/Lab mix. He's a sweetheart and he loves people. Atticus also gets along well with other dogs and loves to play. He's an energetic puppy and he'd love to have an active person or a playful dog companion in his new home. He's treat motivated and he likes to play with toys. He's in obedience training and is doing very well. He also attends most of our satellite adoption events and enjoys being out and meeting new people.

Atticus currently weighs 50 lbs and we're estimating he'll weigh around 60 lbs when fully grown. He has a great smile and a cute little tail that's half as long as it should be.

Atticus has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. He was a stray.
