Vixen is a magical male heeler mix puppy. His estimated DOB is 09/23/2020. He came to our shelter as an owner surrender and his weight at intake was 12 lbs. This sweet baby is ready to set the table and wrap some presents, even though his strong point is unwrapping them! His only wish this holiday is to have a family of his own! We estimate him/her to grow up to be a medium-sized bundle of joy. Vixen adoption fee is $225 and includes a medical exam, sterilization, age-appropriate vaccines, dewormer, heartworm test, and microchip

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.

Our animals change daily, so please check our lists of adoptable dogs and adoptable cats frequently. Once you find an animal you’d like to adopt, the next steps are to complete an application and request a meet and greet with the foster. Make sure to be thorough and help us understand why you’re interested in that particular animal — and why your home is a great fit. Based on your answers we may even have a better fit for you.

Adoption fees: Adoption fees must be paid in full at the time of adoption – no partial payments are accepted. All major credit cards are accepted. Adoption fees vary.

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). All cats must go home in a carrier.
