Meet Girl Scout

Girl Scouts are busy delivering cookies, and this Girl Scout would love to visit your house (and stay). Her current home is the Parkville Animal Shelter, but she would love a comfortable lap and a home of her very own.

She was adopted from the shelter as a kitten in 2009 and then unfortunately returned in August 2013 due to a family member developing allergies. Imagine being with a family for four years and then starting over in a strange environment. Luckily, she is taking it in stride.

When she came back to the shelter she was overweight and walked with difficulty because of her size. Shelter volunteers helped her with grooming because she was so large. Now, more than year has passed and Girl Scout looks great in her uniform thanks to controlling her portion sizes and eating the proper food. She’s trimmed down, moves with ease, but still loves to eat. Volunteers often catch her stealing a morsel or two from another cage.

Girl Scout is declawed and will celebrate her 6th birthday in April. Make this her best birthday ever by giving her a home to call her own. Every pet deserves a forever home. Go to to complete an adoption application, call 816.587.0918 to make an appointment or stop by the cat shelter on Saturdays, from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m.

The Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter (FOPAS) began in 1999 and is located at 1356 NW 9 Highway in Parkville. Dedicated volunteers carry out the FOPAS mission to provide shelter, care, medical treatment and permanent homes for abandoned and stray dogs and cats primarily in Clay and Platte counties. This wonderful work is financed through donations and fundraising events.
