Story
Has your bed felt too empty as of late? Do you have a small, suspiciously fluffy, roughly 40 lbs with 4 legs, hole in your heart? Fret no more, because Allie will fit that spot perfectly. This compact little lady is sweeter than a southerners homemade sweet tea. All this gentle Aussie mix needs is someone willing to take it slow and gentle with her. Despite her affectionate nature, Allie is still a little shy at first meeting. It might take some time (and treats), but once you get her out of her shell and into your lap, she will never leave! Allie's goals in life are quite simple. First, be adorable. Second, find a face to kiss. And third, find her forever home! Allie gets one and two checked off everyday, but she needs your help with the last one! Come meet Allie today and see if she's your missing piece! Midwest Animal ResQ offers a 30-day adjustment period within which you can evaluate the pet's progress and your adoption decision. If, within those 30 days, you determine your recently adopted pet isn't a good fit, you may return the animal and receive a MARQ credit that can be used toward the adoption of another animal. Our biggest priority is finding the very best match for you, and Completing Families one Tail at a Time! All dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, Heartworm tested, and current on vaccinations and preventions prior to adoption. Our shelter is located at 10312 East 63rd Street in Raytown, MO. We are open to meet pets Tuesday through Friday from 10-6, and on Saturday and Sunday from 10-5. We are closed on Mondays.

Story
Meet Tori! Many people take life for granted, go through life with a sense of boredom and in the same old routines... if you are looking for true happiness and appreciation of life, meet Tori, and turn your life into "TORIffic!" You see, Tori spent her first 11 months of life on a chain, missing out on puppy play, snuggles and kisses. But the chains have been cut, and freedom has been found, and she has already forgotten her past. Every morning, she wakes up with excitement and energy, ready to explore her newfound freedom. She's quickly learning love and trust. She's discovering the fun of squeak toys, the joy of playing with other dogs, and the comfort of a house. Tori is ready for a place to call home. Tori loves kids and gets along with dogs of all sizes. She's curious about cats; her foster home has several. If you think you might be the one to join Tori on her journey, then apply to adopt Tori and save your life! Tori will come fully vetted, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on heartworm prevention. Her adoption fee is $200. Apply to adopt Tori today at https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/LUCK/Dog or at www.lucky13rescue.org.

Story
Bogey is a real plus one! He's a playful 3 year old Mini Aussie who loves to cuddle, quietly look out the window at home, and play. He was born in Texas on Valentine's Day at a family friend's farm, and made the trip up north to Kansas City a few months later. He grew up with young children and other dogs, so he knows how to socialize and be a friendly pup. My work situation has required me to be gone for long hours at a time, or being out of town. I just simply cannot give him the love he deserves! Ideal situation would be a normal one, he can be alone during the day but prefers your general presence, nothing needy! A bonus would be multiple humans under one roof, and dogs are welcome! Oddly, has never been around a cat but judging his general demeanor, I think he would befriend anything with a heartbeat. Rehoming fee negotiable!

Story
Approx. DOB: 5/5/18                Approx. Weight: 69 Lbs Adoption Fee: $ 225   includes a 2 week trial to ensure everyone's happiness! We are not sure what Diamond is. The vet clinic listed as a Bearded Collie, however on the surrender form it said Sheepdog/ Australian Shepherd.  Whatever she is, she is definitely a beauty! Diamond would do best in a home where her humans are home more than not. She does have some separation anxiety. She will whine when you first put her in the crate but I tell her it's bedtime and she settles in. I think her having another dog in her new family will also help any anxiety she may feel being left alone during the day. She does well with the other dogs in her foster home and has had no issues with any of them. However, she has been returned 2x now due to having separation anxiety and for having a tussle with the other dog in the home (both females). She definitely enjoys her humans and lights up when you return. She originally came from a family with children and did well with our volunteers daughter (11 yrs). She will need a dog savvy owner. Diamond absolutely loves going for car rides and she loves going on walks. Are you looking for a walking or jogging buddy you have found her! Diamond is going to make some lucky family a wonderful companion. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is very well behaved in the home. And just look at those beautiful blue eyes she has!  I have been spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and microchipped.  If you are interested in adopting me, please complete the adoption application located at www.furrykidsrefuge.org/adoptadog and a dedicated volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible.   Furry Kids' Refuge is in need of good quality dog and puppy food with meat as the first ingredient.  You can drop off donations at our weekly adoption events at the Lee's Summit Petco (1860 NW Chipman Road, Lee's Summit, MO), Saturdays only from 11am to 2:00 p.m.  Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.  Would you like to foster a Furry Kid? Furry Kids' Refuge will supply the food & vet care while you supply the basic house rules & love.......win-win for all!!  Just visit our website http://www.furrykidsrefuge.org/category/fostering/  for more information. Thanks for your support!

Story
Ivy was found with her littermates and parents in the woods in Oklahoma. They caught everybody and put them into foster homes. I adopted her for my mom Who lives in California, but by the time I got out there with her my mom had hurt her hip so bad she is going to need surgery. So I brought Ivy home with me to foster and decided to find her someone else since my mom's recovery is going to be a long one. So Ivy did a 6000 mile road trip with me right from the get-go. She did amazing! I couldn't believe how calm and relaxed she was in my truck driving all day. The only issue I've had with her is she is afraid of strangers. Everywhere I go I bring treats with me and people are happy to feed her. After a couple of treats she is in their pocket. She walks on a leash grate, sits on command, and is an extremely smart dog already. I live on a farm with horses and cows and goats and chickens and she does great. I expect her to be around 40 pounds full grown. I have lots of pics and videos!

These pups are in Kansas City, Missouri too!

Story
I love Lucy and you will too. This pretty Border Collie mix is smart, sweet and is great in the house, the car and in the yard. We don't know her history, but she's a bit shy and is coming out with a wagging tail and smile. She likes cats and is ok with curling up with them for a little snooze. She's obedient and is learning words. She knows sit, down and jump into and out of the car. She knows how to use the dog door and takes cues from her foster brother. She's a perfect size, knee-high, black with a small white bib. She's a loving dog and is just right for a family. She hasn't been around small children.

This dog is a courtesy listing for one of our rescue partners Allen county animal rescue facility. They are a rural animal control shelter near Iola KS. Many dogs are brought to their facility after being found as strays, dumped, surrendered, or brought in by the city. However, because they are in such a rural town, they have a very small pool of adopters and have a hard time finding homes for the dogs in the shelter. Our promise as their rescue partner is that should someone apply through us, we will handle any transportation needed to get the dog to their forever home, we will assist with home visits, dog intros and anything needed to help get these dogs out of the shelter and into loving homes. Please fill out our online dog adoption application if you are interested in adopting this pet. Landry is 3 years old, 82 pounds, neutered, up to date on all necessary vetting.  Meet Landry! Landry is the biggest baby you'll ever meet. He is 82 pounds in the physical world, but his soul is 10 pounds. He is a lover and wants to be wherever his people are. Landry does well with people, though can be shy at first, as well as other dogs! No cats for this fella, though. Truly, this snuggle bug would love to be your new best friend. If he sounds like your kind of guy, apply to meet him!May 13, 2024, 2:57 pm
