Special Needs:



Oh hello! I'm Lou, but the workers call me Mr. Handsome, whatever that means. Anyways, I am oh so sweet and I have the perfect balance of calm and energetic, I love to jog around but I also love naps and snuggles. I am potty trained, walk well on a leash, and LOVE to play with my toys. I like to keep my space clean, so no destructive habits here! While I truly am a great dog, I would prefer an adult-only home. Children can be sporadic, moving this way, that way, screaming, crawling, jumping… It's not my fault I want to get right in the mix and rough house along with them! They look like they're having so much fun.. who would want to miss out? This is actually the reason I was returned by my last family. They loved me dearly and it broke their hearts to return me, but I just play too rough for such young children. Know a big, strong man or woman in your life that would be willing to play with me? Well, send them my way!


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.
