Hi there! I'm Trevor, and hopefully, your new best friend! I came to the shelter as a stray lost, scared, and confused. It took a while for me to warm up to the nice people here at the shelter, but I definitely have a few favorite people finally. I would love for you to come and visit me. I may take a little while to warm up at first, I'll do a lot of tail tucking and will hide behind the person I trust. Once I begin to warm up, you'll start to see my goofy and playful side. I have boundless energy when you're ready to have fun, and am the BEST snuggler when you're ready to relax. I have met a few kids during my stay here, and I almost seem to warm up quicker to kids than adults. Kids are SO much fun to run around with and play "fetch the toy" with. Once I warm up and adjust to this big scary world, I would make a phenomenal companion to the right family. Come in and say hi & see if I would fit well in your life!


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.
