Special Needs:



What miss Layla may lack in sophistication (she reportedly couched up a loogie and thoroughly enjoyed eating it), she makes up for it by having an excellent temperament! She loves to roll around and scratch her back, receive belly rubs, and goes nuts for toys (She retrieves like a pro)! At this point, she may like her toys even more than her food! She does wonderful while getting a bath and is quite gentle despite her plump size. She's a brilliant dog, already knowing how to "sit", "lay", and "shake"! We're sure you could easily have a little circus performer on your hands in no time! If you're looking for a true best friend, Layla here is your gal! *Edit to add:* Occasionally the dogs in our care are able to participate in adoption events at other locations. While they may not get adopted at these outings, it is still a GREAT way for us to learn more about each dog outside of the shelter setting. This dog in particular recently took part in our "clear the shelters" event at Petsmart. They were able to meet new dogs & people alike, all while being in a completely new environment. That can be a lot for any dog to handle, but this dog, Layla, did AMAZING. She was incredibly well-behaved in the store and really was just wanting to "hang out" with the people. She let kids pet all over him and seemed to really enjoy the affection! We believe she would do great in any home, as she has a wonderful temperament and behavior.


Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at the 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.

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.

All PPAS dogs are up to date on all of their vaccines (including rabies if age appropriate), and will be microchipped 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. All dogs and cats per state law are sterilized before they begin their new fabulous lives with their new families.

Adoption fees: Adoption fees must be paid in full at time of adoption – no partial payments are accepted. 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.
