Hi my name is Nico, I am currently enrolled in the puppies for parole program. I am an older guy who doesn't like a whole lot of activity. I have learned how to sit, lay down and walk nicely on a leash. I love all people but I don't like other dogs so I need to be an only dog. I would make a great lap dog for someone who just wants a buddy to watch television with and go for an occasional leisurely stroll.

If you are interested in meeting or adopting this dog or if you have any questions please feel free to contact our volunteer Kathy Zipp at or contact her at 816-752-2295. We will try to respond back as quickly as we can but all of our staff or volunteers also work. Thank you

About City of Cameron

About Our Shelter...

The City of Cameron is partnering with the Department of Corrections program Puppies for Parole. In Cameron, we have Western Missouri Correctional Center and Crossroads Correctional Center that we work with for the Puppies for Parole Program . ( ) The dogs are shelter dogs from the City of Cameron that are viewed as hard to adopt because of socialization/behavior issues. The dogs are then sent for basic obedience training (Canine Good Citizen) where the learn basic obedience training along with being house trained and kennel trained. The dogs are then adopted out to loving families who are looking for a dog to add as a member of their family.
