Wayside Waifs Visit, August 19, 2011

I took myself--and the iPhone--to Wayside Waifs last Friday. It is so much fun to see all the animals that are ready for adoption, and to see the youngsters as well. Here are some of the photographic results of that visit. Pictured animals may already have been adopted (yay!) so check at for the most current listing of available pets.

There were several black kitties ready for adoption of all ages, from young to mature.

Beautiful odd-eyed cat--gorgeous black and white markings.

A pile of kittens, one of two piles there that day. Lots of kittens still available at the shelter.

Believe it or not, this beautiful dog was found as a stray, and tended to by a concerned family until there was room at the shelter for her to stay.

These are dachshunds, incredibly-- I have never seen wiener dogs colored this way. I saw them up later and they looked every bit of the doxy!

Lord only knows what breeds have mixed together here but the results are very appealing.

Me, take me!

Wayside Waifs is in south Kansas City at 3901 Martha Truman Road. On the web at Open 2-8 weekdays except Monday and Tuesday, 12-6 weekends. Call 816-761-8151 for more info.

Those are so damn precious!
That HUSKY is gorgeous!

Wish I could work in a shelter like that, but I get too attached to too many...and way too soon.
(Blame St.

Great post.

Hope all the "waifs" find good homes.

Have a great weekend.
Stay safe out there.

Bob G:
I love going over there and seeing the animals. It helps to know that it is pretty much a no-kill shelter now. That to me is the hardest--to volunteer or work at a shelter that ends up having to kill healthy animals due to lack of space. Once a cat or dog falls under the supervision of WW it is safe until adopted by someone.
Thanks for stoping by and I hope you have a great week.
