816 North

Pets of the Week: Avis and Persimonne



Age: About 5 years

Breed: Black and tan

Sex: Female

Description: Avis is mellow and calm, appears to be housetrained and likes other dogs as well as humans. She is very patient and, for a Coonhound, relatively quiet. However, she does have the unique Coonhound bay, so an apartment may not be the best home for her.


Age: 6 to 7 years

Breed: Domestic short hair with white bib

Sex: Female

Description: Persimonne has been at the shelter since 2009. She is a little shy, but she is very sweet and playful. She is definitely ready for her forever home and we know she will be extra cuddly and sweet with her humans. She is looking for a safe, indoor home to call her own. Come by the shelter on Saturdays at 1356 N. 9 Hwy. from 11-3 or call 816-587-0918 to make an appointment.

Adoption information: The Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter at 1356 N. Missouri 9 is run by volunteers, so call 816-587-0918 to schedule an appointment, send email to friendsofparkville@hotmail.com, or go to www.parkvilleshelter.com.

Fees of $125 for dogs and $100 for cats include spaying/neutering, shots and microchips.
