Meet Iron Man

Iron Man is an excellent dog with an estimated DOB of 8/12/2018. He arrived at the shelter from another facility which was running out of space and weighed 32.9 lbs at intake.We think he is so awesome that we asked him to tell you a bit about himself:

"Hi everyone! My name is Iron Man and I just flew in from a shelter that didn't have any room for me, and boy are my arms tired! Look at the cape I stole from Superman! It matched my outfit way better than his! When I got to Prairie Paws everyone was super excited to see me, but I hadn't ever spent any time with people so I was really scared of them. Everything was loud and new and I had a terrible time. I didn't know how to be a dog! The awesome staff and volunteers here have been working really hard to make me feel welcome and teach me that people are awesome. I'm starting to believe them and I'm learning how to play with both the staff and other dogs. Playgroup is the best!
Did you know people have toys??? I figured out that I can play with rope toys and I'm determined to learn what this ball thing does. It rolls around and bounces and does something, I'm sure of it, but I can't tell what! I know I will figure it out, though, because I'm super smart just like that guy that is named after me in the dorky red suit with no cool cape. I keep hoping someone will come in and want to meet me; I think I'm ready for a human all of my own and maybe a dog friend or two? I need a little patience while I warm up to you, but if you give me a little bit of your time I will show you how smart and funny and absolutely adorable I am. I mean, who can resist these ears? I took some videos of myself getting pet and playing with a toy with one of the staff members so you can see how cool these people are too! Check them out and come in and let's get to know each other! I can't wait!" -Iron man

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. As we get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

All PPAS puppies and dogs are up to date on all of their vaccines (including rabies if age appropriate), and will be micro chipped and registered in the adopter's name at the time of adoption. Adopters get a free consultation at an area vet partner within 14 days of adoption. Any dog that is six months of age or older will be tested for Heartworms and if found negative, will be kept on Heartworm prevention during their shelter stay, after the adoption it is up to the adopter to continue the highly recommended Heartworm preventative treatment. Also all PPAS shelter dogs are treated with a monthly topical flea/tick preventative and we ask that adopters continue that treatment as well. Per state law we sterilize all shelter pets before they begin their new fabulous lives with their new families.

The shelter is open to the public: Mon, Wed, Thurs 11-6 and Sat 11-4. If you are interested in this dog or puppy, please either email Prairie Paws Animal Shelter at, for an application visit our website @ or call 785.242.2967 for more information.

The phones are answered as early as 8am on any open day if you have questions or if you would like to place a hold on an animal.

Here's the scoop on the adoption process:

Placing a Hold: A hold may be placed on an animal for $20.00 a day up to 3 business days ($60.00 max). The hold fee is non-refundable and does not go towards the adoption fee. We encourage you to utilize the hold system if you are interested in a certain pet. A credit card number may be given over the phone or the fee paid at the shelter to ensure the pet you are interested in is available for a meet and greet. Placing the animal on hold makes it so others cannot have a meet and greet with the animal until the hold expires. Holds are on a first call/come first serve basis. You must call or come in, holds cannot be put down via email. You may call the shelter as early as 8am on any open day to place a hold.

In person meet and greet: Potential adopters must come and meet the animal before an adoption can take place. We cannot do over the phone sight unseen adoptions. Business hours vary and are listed on our website ( or at end of our email correspondence. If you have other animals you would like to bring to the meet and greet we encourage you to do so. We have outdoor enclosures and trained kennel staff will assist with all meet and greets. All family members, including children, are encouraged to attend the meet and greet.

Adoption Questionnaire: Potential adopters will need to fill out the adoption questionnaire. Adoption questionnaires are available on our website or at the meet and greet. Once complete, an Adoption Counselor will review the questionnaire with the potential adopter and will have a discussion to ask and/or answer any additional questions. From there, the adoption counselor will print and review all appropriate paperwork with the adopter to provide important and educational information regarding the animal.

Adoption fees: Adoption fees must be paid in full at time of adoption – no partial payments are accepted. Cash, Check or all major credit cards are accepted. Adoption fees vary. Please note if you live in the city of Ottawa a dog license fee must also be paid at time of adoption. Annual renewal of dog licenses is required between January 1st and February 15th.

Taking your animal home: The State of Kansas requires that all cats and dogs must be sterilized (spayed/neutered) before going to their new homes. In most cases animals will have already been sterilized before being placed on the adoption floor and you will be able to take your new companion home with you the day of adoption. However, if the animal is not yet sterilized, they will need to stay at the shelter and we will schedule the surgery on the next available date (usually within a week). We do request that all dogs go home with a collar/leash, so if you have one please bring it along or we do have a great selection available in our retail area.

The shelter is open to the public: Mon, Wed, Thurs 11-6 and Sat 11-4. If you are interested in this pet, please either email Prairie Paws Animal Shelter at, for an application visit our website @ or call 785.242.2967 for more information.
