Waif Wednesday

It’s that time again to meet our Waifs of the Week: Rory, Ringo, and Benji!

This is Rory, a gorgeous four-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. She’s the perfect combination of sweet and cuddly, and energetic and active! She’s a sweet girl who is already crate-trained and housebroken. She first came to Wayside about three years ago, and she spent some time in foster before getting adopted. That did not work out however, and she was transferred back here from another shelter. Life is meant to be savored and enjoyed, so she is making the most of it here! She’s definitely a staff and volunteer favorite, and some remember her from a few years ago. She is looking for that forever home with you though! She’s very well-behaved in a home and a fenced-in yard, and she loves car rides! She’s an active girl, and is a great walking/running partner. She loves her exercise, and she loves a buddy to go on runs with! She is a smart girl who is looking to learn even more things with you. She loves praise, so just tell her she is being a good girl and she will respond happily! While she does love her play sessions, she would love nothing more than to cool off with someone and end the day with a snuggle session. She loves attention, so her new home should give her plenty of Rory time so she can be happy! A perfect day for Rory would be to exercise, play, and end it with some cuddle time. That sounds so nice. Because Rory is energetic, she asks that she goes to a home without children under the age of five, because she does not want to hurt them! She also wants all the attention for herself, so she prefers to be the only animal in the home. More love to give! She is ready to meet you whenever you are, come out to Wayside and see this amazing girl!

Learn more about Rory here. She also has a video, which you can view here.

Meet Ringo, a strapping young cat with no English accent. He’s five years old, and while he does not sing or play the drums, he makes up for it in making biscuits and purring! He’s a sweet, loving boy, and he has a beautiful pink nose that stands out for all the right reasons! He originally came to Wayside from another shelter as they were low on space. However, he is pleased to be here and he is ready to find that fur-ever home. He’s naturally curious, and his favorite pastime is exploring our sunroom here. That room is all windows, and they can watch birds out back, and most typically enjoy it! That being said, he would love a window in his future home that he can look out of. Are you looking for a mellow, sweet boy to bring music to your heart? He gets by with a little help from his friends!

Learn more about Ringo here. Ringo also has a video which you can view here.

Here’s Benji, an exquisite eight-year-old American Bulldog mix who was found as a stray by a good Samaritan. Luckily they brought her here to Wayside and gave her a second chance at life! She’s a sweet lady who is ready to retire in a forever home, potentially with you! She’s an older gal, so she would like a calm, quiet home to enjoy her days in. She does love to play, and squeaky toys are her favorite, but don’t worry, she is a gentle player! She’s also very smart, because she knows the commands sit, down, come, and stay already. She does love to learn though, so if you give her yummy treats and praise, she’s ready to go! While she does have little bursts of energy, her favorite thing to do is cuddling. She LOVES attention and belly rubs. If you’re looking for someone to spend some quality time with, who will always be there to listen, and who will be an all around grrr-eat companion, Benji is your girl. Come meet her today!

Learn more about Benji here.

Waif Wednesday

It’s time to meet our Waifs of the Week: Buster, Dolly, and Cheyanne!

**I’m eligible for a Slumber Paw-ty! Please see “Slumber Paw-ty Program” page under the “Adopt” tab for more details. Thanks!**

This is Buster, a photogenic three-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Buster was brought to Wayside after his last shelter ran out of space for him, but that’s okay! He is ready to find his forever home! He’s excited to meet his person or persons that will take him home, and maybe that’s you! Buster’s a real friendly guy, but he does have some minor requests. He would like to be in a household with children over the age of five, just because he worries his energy might be too much for the little ones. He also would like to be in a home without cats, if that’s alright. He would do best in an active home so he will never be bored! He loves playing and walking, and he’s ready to have fun with you and learn new things. He does pretty well on his leash, and is a great running partner. Is Buster the one for you? Come visit him today!

You can learn more about Buster here. He also has a video out, which you can view here.

Meet Dolly, a beautiful dilute Tortoiseshell cat who is a one-year-old. She’s not working nine to five, but she will always love you! She’s actually had a litter of kittens, even though she is very young herself. She came to Wayside with her litter in hopes of a better life, and she is ready to meet you! She might be bashful at first, but she is a sweet, loving girl. Our Feline-ality assessor deemed her a “Personal Assistant,” meaning she is ready to be by your side and help you with anything! She will be the most happy when she’s with you! Dolly is ready for her forever home, are you ready to meet Dolly?

Read more about Dolly here.

**Cheyanne is currently staying in a foster home.  If you’d like to schedule a time to meet her, please contact Wayside Adoptions at (816)986-4426. Thanks!**

This is sweet Cheyanne, a seven-year-old Shepard mix. If you’re looking for a dog to hang out with and talk to and cuddle with, then she might be your perfect companion. If you feel like snuggling, she’s the perfect size! Cheyanne came to Wayside when her last shelter ran out of space for her. She was really scared at first, which is why she was so thankful when her Foster Mom decided to take her in. Foster Mom calls her the perfect houseguest and says there is nothing at all to not like about her. She doesn’t cause any trouble at all. She hasn’t had any accidents, and while she does fine in a crate, her Foster Mom lets her free-roam and she does great! Cheyanne is very polite, and is such a good-natured girl. She’s just an all-around wonderful friend. She does fine on a leash and will go on walks, but she is more excited about being with you!  Her foster parents praise her whenever she is a good girl (practically all the time) so her confidence is building up as well.  She can be shy at first, so she asks that someone is patient while she gets used to her new home. She has lived with dogs similar to her personality, and has done well. She would rather hang out with people though! With her shy nature, she’d prefer a home with children over the age of five, just until her confidence builds up more. She would love to meet the whole family, including your dogs to make sure you guys are the right fit. She’s ready to meet you whenever you are ready to meet her! Come to Wayside to meet her today!

Learn more about Cheyanne here.

Waif Wednesday

It’s that time again to meet our Waifs of the Week: Hershey, Nugget, and Mason!

This is Hershey, a beautiful five-year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Her last shelter ran out of space for her, so she was transferred here. But not to worry, she is ready to find her peeps! She’s enjoying her time here, but she is looking for a home to call her own. She can be nervous at first, so she politely asks that she goes to a home without small children under the age of five. She wants to be the queen of the castle, so she requests she is your only pet. She’s an excitable girl, and loves going on walks. She will probably need a harness because she is known to pull; the world is just so exciting! She’s ready to learn new things with you! With the motivation of treats, she is wanting to learn more basic obedience, but she already knows ‘come.’ Honestly, she would be the happiest by your side, whether it is on a walk or lounging around the house. Come get some Hershey kisses at Wayside!

**Nugget is currently staying in a foster home.  If you’d like to schedule a time to meet him, please contact Wayside Adoptions at (816)986-4426. Thanks!**

This dashing young man is Nugget, and he is an eleven month old cat. He is a tuxedo cat, which means he is always ready for a formal outing with you!  Nugget was transferred here from Iowa after his shelter ran out of space. Making new friends in a new city is always hard, but he quickly charmed the new staff and volunteers at Wayside. Nugget became a favorite because of those paw-some cuddles he gives! Unfortunately, the longer he stayed in the shelter the more stressed he became. The staff and volunteers noticed he was slowly getting worse. That’s when his guardian angel came to rescue him, his wonderful foster mom! Nugget is enjoying a much needed break from the shelter, and getting all the cuddles he wants! His foster parents are showing him what it means to be loved. One of his best attributes is that he loves being carried around the house. Cuddling is a must, so his new family needs to be prepared for that! Some of his favorite things to do are play in cardboard boxes, watch the world outside, and talk to his foster family. There are a few things you should know though. He is not a fan of sharing, so he would like to be the only cat in the home. When he gets stressed, he has some loose stools, and grain-free seems to have helped him, so his diet should consist of grain-free food and treats. His tummy will be very thankful for this. If you are looking for a snuggle bug who wants attention like no other, contact the Adoptions team to get in touch with Mr. Nugget!

This is Mason, a handsome two-year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He was transferred here after his last shelter ran out of space for him, but that is okay! Mason is ready to find a family to call his own! He’s happy to be at Wayside while he waits for his new peeps! He’s an energetic boy, so he will do best in a home without small children under the age of five. He is ready to learn basic obedience with you, and he is a smart boy. As long as you have treats at the ready, he is ready to learn! As he is such an energetic boy, it is best that he will be walked on a harness because of potential pulling, but he does well with it! He is ready to go on walks and even runs with you if you are up for it. If you’re looking for a sweet, fun boy, Mason is the one for you. Come by Wayside to meet him today!

We are running a promotion this week! Learn more about it here.

Inside Scoop: Feline Care Department

I have worked at Wayside for almost three years now, and something I’ve noticed is whenever I speak to the general public about working here, they are interested in the animals, but they are also curious about the inside jobs of staff and volunteers. Today, I’ve decided to highlight the Feline Care Department. Kitten Season is a time when shelters see an increase in pregnant adult cats and many young kittens who need extra care. During the summer months, kitten season is at an all-time high, but the feline care team are prepared for anything.

_MG_7412

This is Sarah, a previous adoptions counselor who switched departments because it worked better for her schedule. Here she is pictured caring for Ford, who is sick with a mild upper respiratory infection. We were discussing her favorite part of the job, and as soon as she opened Ford’s door, he went in for snuggles.

“This. This is the best.” Sarah went on to say that, “In Adoptions, we knew the big picture of taking care of the animals, but I didn’t know there was this much that goes into it. It’s nice to see their journey and to help them along the way.”

_MG_7406

I asked Sarah what the feline care team is doing to prepare for kitten season.

“Honestly, we are going with the flow for now. We have space still, so we are always prepared for something different everyday. We also are watching for illness more than the usual amount. With moms and kittens, their immune systems are weakened, so I look for signs of illness immediately.”

_MG_7400

This is Lauretta, another previous adoptions counselor turn feline care technician. Lauretta switched departments for a full-time position, and is enjoying the new job. Here she is getting a fresh litter box for some kittens in our Kitten Nursery ward. That room is usually designated for pregnant or nursing mothers and kittens. Lauretta typically worked in cat adoptions, but she enjoys seeing their journey throughout their stay.

“I honestly like seeing how they grow throughout their stay here. They either need help with their shyness or they need medical treatment, or maybe they just want cuddles. I like seeing their progress.” She also thinks cats in general are pretty great!

_MG_7402

 

This is less than half of our other feline care technicians. We also have team members Shannon, Chris, Sheila, and the feline care manager Bonnie. They are all fantastic in what they do and give 110% in caring for our cats. Bonnie had some insight as to what it is like managing such a wonderful department, and what her favorite part is!

“I would have to say when staff thinks outside the box or takes initiative to do more or to find a way to improve a process. Growth for them.”

Many shelters are already full, but kitten season promises to be as lively as ever. Consider brushing up on your city’s animal control policies and contact shelters to see their availability. Be cautious if you have a raised deck, and check under your car before driving and around the tires. Mother cats often try to find hard to reach places to protect their litter. Most importantly, stay cool out there!

Black Cat Fever

At Wayside, we currently have 28 black cats and kittens available for adoption. That may not seem like a big number, but they take up a majority of cats here. Black cats have the stigma of being unlucky, and they also tend to not stand out in the eyes of adopters when looking at a different colored cats. It really is nothing personal, it just always happens that way. We have decided to showcase our black feline friends because of how fantastic they are! The following are some reasons why black cats are so awesome!

1. Ancient Egyptians valued black cats so much, they worshipped one as a goddess. 

Bast was one of the most popular goddesses during ancient times, and she was thought of as a feline goddess. She personified the playfulness, grace, affection, and cunning of a cat as well as the fierce power of a lioness. Her name implied that she was sweet and precious, but that under the surface lay the heart of a predator. So adopting a black cat could mean inviting royalty in your home!

2. They always look clean.

Just like a black car, or black furniture, black cats do not really show dirt or grime that well, so they always look clean. The cat will not care if it is raining, or if it is muddy or dusty outside, they know they will still look good! Adopting a black cat means always having a spotless looking companion, and having the bragging rights to go along with it!

3. They go with everything.

Black is a color that goes with everything and never clashes. Are you wanting a selfie buddy that will not ruin your look? Black is a very slimming color, so they aim to show off your best! A black cat is the way to go. Are you changing the decorations in your house to a new style? No worries, your furry friend will continue to go with the new patterns. Bringing home a black cat means never having to worry about color clashing.

4. They have famous cats in their community.

As pictured above, Salem in Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, is a very popular black cat in pop culture. Also famous is Sylvester from Looney ToonsFelix The Cat, Binx from Hocus Pocus, The Cat from The Cat In The Hat, and Lucifer from Cinderella. Black cats are kind of a big deal. Adopting one will probably lead to movie deals and recording contracts. Probably.

5. If they shed, as long as you wear black, it blends in. 

If you have that little black dress on, or black pants, the hair will not show up as much. That is always a positive versus having to use a lint roller all the time minutes before leaving the house. Black cats want love too, they just know you want your clothes hair free as well. Wearing black never seemed so nice right?

6. They have their own day, or days!

Because black cats are so amazing, countries gave them their own day of celebration! In the United Kingdom, October 27th is ‘Black Cat Day’ which encourages people to adopt those furry friends in hopes of sharing their uniqueness. Here in the United States, we have a ‘Black Cat Appreciation Day’ that encourages people to adopt and share photos of their beautiful black cats!

7. They look like Toothless from How to Train your Dragon.

It is like having your own personal dragon! Black cats blend in with the exception of their mesmerizing yellow or green eyes. Because of that interesting look, they have been compared to that popular character Toothless. If you adopt a black cat, you can brag to everyone that you actually own a dragon.

8. They are your own personal paranormal investigator. 

Granted, if you do not believe in ghosts, this one will not pertain to you. However, if you love watching shows like Ghost Adventures and going on ghost hunts, black cats are for you. They come with superstitions, as they were known to be the cats in the Salem Witch Trials. If you hear things that go bump in the night, black cats are for you!

9. You have the best mouser around town.

Black cats are nearly invisible at night, making them the perfect hunter for their prey. If you have a mouse or bug problem, they will be solved with the addition of a black cat. Cats have that predator tendency to hunt, and enjoy a challenge. If they present it to you, it is a sign of respect and they mean to give it to you as a gift, so be courteous!

10. They are like mini Panthers.

Have you ever wanted a jungle cat but being afraid and laws prevented you from owning one? Black cats look like mini panthers, and that is kind of adorable. They have that sleek black coat with those piercing eyes, and they strut like they own the place. Besides bragging about having a cat in general, you can brag about owning a panther!

I think black cats are fantastic, and I think this list proves they are even more. As I said earlier, our shelter is full of these black beauties, and we hate to see them get overlooked as they do. Consider meeting one of our furry friends during our adoption hours! Here are some of our featured black cats and kittens!

This is Lucky, a two year old male black and white tuxedo cat. Learn more about him here.

This is Merida, a four year old female black cat, with similar looks like Toothless! Learn more about her here.

This is Jon, a one year old male black and white tuxedo cat. Learn more about him here.

This is Oat, a four month old female kitten. Learn more about her here.

These are the Ninjas. They are a litter of five black kittens, three girls and two boys. This is their dojo, and they train in here. Always have a buddy when entering their room, as the Ninjas are escape artists. Their names are Aspen, Cherokee, Ruffles, Zazzle, and Fuzzball. Come and meet them today! Or watch them on our Kitty Cam here.

Waifs of the Week

We hope you all had a fun and safe Independence Day! It’s time to meet our Waifs of the Week: Marla, Millie, and Ringo!

Marla is a pretty three-year old tabby cat with plenty of love to give. Her Feline-ality is a Private Investigator, which means she might spend some time behind the scenes and make sure the house is in order. She might be a little shy at first, but she loves to give purrs and headbutts! Her favorite toys are wand and mouse toys! Because she is a shy girl, she would prefer to go to a home without children under the age of ten, and she would prefer to be the only cat in the home. She just wants to have all your love to herself! She asks that her adopter will be patient, as she will be uncomfortable at first in a new environment. She will need a private space for a few days, but after that she is ready to be your companion!

Learn more about Marla here. Marla has a video, you can watch it here!

This is Millie, a gorgeous Border Collie mix. She is a one year old, and she is looking for her fur-ever home! She was originally brought to Wayside as a stray, but thankfully animal control found her and brought her in! She’s a sweet girl, with a very affectionate personality. She will need a calm environment, and she asks that you give her time to adjust as she can be quite shy at first. Once she warms up, she enjoys cuddling and hugs. She likes to know that you are there for her, so she wants to be close to you! She’s a smart girl and is looking to learn more from you. Learning new things will build up her confidence and stimulate her brain! She loves going on walks, but she also is a velcro dog-meaning she loves being by your side! Come visit Millie to see if she is the one for you.

Learn more about Millie here. 

Meet Ringo, a strapping young cat with no English accent. He’s five years old, and while he does not sing or play the drums, he makes up for it in making biscuits and purring! He’s a sweet, loving boy, and he has a beautiful pink nose that stands out for all the right reasons!

Meet our Waifs of the Week!!

Ivory

9d62a16f-b4ae-4ff8-87d7-c0f139af7d0e

 

Sniff. Look. Listen. That’s how I take in the world. And what a world it is! There are squirrels to be chased! Yards to be sprinted across! People to snuggle! You’re my ticket to that wonderful world! Don’t get me wrong, the kennel I live in here is safe, warm, dry, and clean, but I long to investigate this big fantastic world with someone like you!

I’m a young, tall, lanky Catahoula leopard dog mix with a caramel version of those cool spots that is typical of my breed. Because I’m pretty enthusiastic and take my food quite seriously, I need to go to a home with kids older than five. I walk nicely on a leash and relish discovering all of those interesting things that the world has to offer. I haven’t spent much time in social situations, so I’m hoping you can help me understand this amazing world. I’m super smart and already know sit, shake and down, so show me the rest! I’ll pick it up in no time!

I’m athletic and live life with vitality and gusto, so bring your dog family members out to meet me. They can help us decide if we’re a happy mix.

I’ve got my whole life ahead of me and I’d love to spend it with you! Won’t you come out to meet me? We can be partners exploring this spectacular world!

Love,

Ivory

Ginger

a6a073bf-ff1c-4889-9dd1-b17b3ecc41c7

 

I’m young bunny looking for my forever home. I’m super friendly and will hop up to you to say hello! I love to have my super soft fur stroked, and LOVE to eat carrots out of your hand! I like to sit in your lap and have you pet me, but sometimes us bunnies get scared if you pick us up. We will even sometimes kick our legs as a defense. After all, in the wild the only reason we leave the ground is if a predator picks us up.

If you are looking for a fuzzy rabbit as a pet, why not adopt me rather than buying a bunny from a store? I’m looking for a good home too, you know! Did you know that rabbits make excellent house pets? We are actually a lot cleaner than most people think. I am litter box trained and can be let out and about in the house to play. We can also be clicker trained. Try searching for clicker trained rabbits on youtube. It’s pretty fascinating!

Us rabbits love to play with toys and will play with a lot of toys you can easily make yourself. We love to play with cardboard tubing from used up paper towels and toilet paper. Rabbits feel very strongly about recycling, so we do what we can to use up those pesky tubes! We love to burrow in and scratch on cardboard boxes and paper bags. We also love to climb on stuff, so make sure you have some climbing structures for us to play on. Come meet me today. I’ll greet you with a proper sniffing as soon as you approach my enclosure. I can’t wait!!!

Barney

Thanks for reading about me! My name is Barney, and I’m a gorgeous gray-and-white boy with beautiful green eyes and and adorable smudge of gray on my nose and a tip of white on my gray tail. I came to Wayside as a stray. I’m a friendly guy who loves people very much. I enjoy attention, and I will let you know how much with my great headbutts and wonderful purr. When I had my Felineality test here at Wayside, they told me I’m a Secret Admirer. That means that I tend to be a little timid in new situations, but I love people very much. Once I get to know and trust you, I will be your best friend forever! I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Barney

Fido’s Spring Checklist

spring checklist As the grass begins to turn green, snowbells blossom, and the sun sets later in the evening, you and Fido may find yourselves developing a case of spring fever. The good news? With the right precautions taken, you and your pooch will be ready to spring into warmer days with a seamless transition. Employing the tips below is easy, and you’re sure to have some fun along the way.

Spring To-dos:

Up the Exercise

When it’s cold outside, many owners and canine companions get less exercise. Not to worry, though. Although your pooch doesn’t need to get in beach-worthy shape, he or she does need to get conditioned for long days of fun in the sun. The key? Like any exercise regimen, you should ease your way into full-fledged workout mode. In no time walks around the block will turn into 5-mile trail hikes.

Wash The Paws

Beds of green grass are fun for pups to roll around in, but during the spring, be careful of potentially harmful chemicals, such as herbicides, that are used for the removal of  unwanted vegetation.

Flee & Protection

Rolling around in the grass is all good fun until somebody gets a bad case of fleas or ticks. The solution? Monthly flea and tick preventative medication is best practice; however, you’ll also want to give your dog a thorough comb-through if you go for a hike in a heavily wooded area. You can purchase these products at Whiskers & Wags, Wayside’s Boutique. All proceeds from sales in the store benefit the animals at the shelter!

Groom the Coat

Spring is a time for fresh starts, so be sure to send your pet for a day at the groomers, where he or she can get a fresh cut that keeps them cool and comfortable as the weather gets warmer outside. It also helps to get in the routine of brushing them at night.  This can not only help them relax but it keeps the tangles and dander to a minimum.  And, hey, it’s great quality time together. Need some more convincing? Think how cute your pooch will look with their new hairdo!

Learn More

Looking for a furry friend to take long strolls with on breezy spring evenings? Wayside Waifs of Kansas City is home to a number of adoptable dogs and cats that are looking for their forever home, so be sure to stop by the shelter today.

Shelter Hours:

Wednesday-Friday Noon-8pm

Saturday 10am-6pm

Sunday 1pm-6pm

Meet Miss Monroe

MonroeIf you are looking for the purrrfect cat companion, you must meet one of our star pets. Sometimes the sweetest of animals are overlooked, which is exactly what has happened to this adorable, little cat. Wayside Waifs is home to a number of adoring, adoptable pets, one of which is Miss Monroe. Although this black-haired feline doesn’t have the blonde tresses of Marilyn Monroe herself, she certainly packs a celebrity-caliber personality. If you want to learn more about our latest starlet who is available for adoption, you don’t have to make a trek to Hollywood.  Our very own animal shelter is proud to house Miss Monroe.

A Behind-the-scenes Look 

So, what do you need to know about Miss Monroe? Well, for starters she has A-list looks that kill. Monroe sports a full, black coat that is as soft and fluffy as it looks in pictures. However, what makes Monroe a true star are her twinkling eyes. Elizabeth Taylor may have had violet eyes, but Monroe has ones that are equally glamorous. Her golden stare is a reflection of her heart of gold. Monroe can be a bit standoffish and nippy with strangers, but it is only because –in true celebrity nature—she has strong ideas about who her forever owner should be. You see, she is looking for a true Hollywood ending…preferably one with a warm, loving home, a bowl of cat food, and some snuggles – at her discretion, of course.

Other things you need to know about Monroe? Well, given her posh personality, it should be no surprise to learn she is house trained. Monroe is also two years old, so she is the perfect companion for someone with more mature needs. Because Monroe has been with us for so long, her adoption fees have been waived.

If you would like to meet Miss Monroe, please contact Wayside Waifs – we provide red-carpet access for all interested parties.

To interact with Monroe, be sure to visit our animal shelter; Monroe looks forward to making your acquaintance.
