Facts about Ava
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
I am already spayed.
Meet Ava! Ava is a 3-4 year old petite Tuxedo girl. She has lovely markings, cute short legs and the most beautiful eyes that will melt your heart. Ava has not had an easy start to her life. She was surrendered to a local animal shelter, through no fault of her own, but she totally shut down in the shelter as the environment was too stressful for her. Luckily, she was able to move into a foster home where she is doing great! Ava is very sweet and is looking for a new forever family who can give her extra TLC and be patient with her, as she can initially be scared and timid in new situations. But as soon as she knows she is safe, she will seek out lots of love and attention and be your best friend. She enjoys her food and treats and is not a picky eater. Ava is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Ava lived with a dog and another cat in her previous home and got along fine with both of them. She would do well as an only pet or as an addition to a home that includes other furry friends. If you are interested in Ava or would like more information, email her foster mom at email@example.com.
The Heart of America Humane Society is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization helping to place shelter and foster animals into permanent homes in and around the greater Kansas City metro area.
Our goal is to save and improve the lives of Kansas City's homeless companion animals by promoting responsible pet ownership. The Heart of America Humane Society (HAHS) partners with the Lee's Summit Animal Shelter (Lee's Summit, MO) to manage a spay/neuter program and to increase pet adoptions into responsible, permanent homes.
Background Our organization does not have a permanent facility or paid staff, so nearly all of our adoptions or other community involvement takes place on-site at pet stores and through other event venues. Some events raise awareness and bring in donations for our animal support efforts, while others help acknowledge and show appreciation for our own volunteers (who perform all duties outside of their regular jobs). HAHS maintains a News and Events Web page to highlight these efforts.

Our Adoption Process...
How much does it cost to adopt an animal?
The cost of adoptions of puppies 5 months and younger is $200. While some of the adult dogs coming into our program are already spayed/neutered, all of the puppies require this expense from HAHS. The cost of dogs over the age of 6 months is $150. The cost of one kitten under the age of 5 months is $85 and for 2 kittens it is $130. The cost of one cat over the age of 6 months is $65 and for two cats it is $100.
