Barn Cats
barn catWe have cats who are not posted online and are semi-feral or have behaviors that prevent them from being indoor companions, but who would be good barn cats. These cats have been spayed, vaccinated and tested for FIV & feline leukemia. If you live on property and would be able to provide shelter, food and care please contact Lorna at 913.521.2343 or send an email.

Special Needs Pets
We take in many dogs and cats with injuries or medical issues and provide them with the care they need. We also take in some pets who hadn't been well-socialized and are timid and need extra care. We provide bios about each pet on their Petfinder page to help you understand their needs. You may also indicate on your adoption application that you are interested in adopting a special needs pets and our adoption coordinators can then help you find a good match.

Senior Pets
Older pets make wonderful companions and, yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks! Some come to us after their person passes away. Others have been taken for neglect, some having spent their whole lives in a very sad situation. Regardless, they all deserve to live their golden years in a comfy home with lots of love. You can do a search by age to find our current senior pets on our pet scroller above.
