My name is Micah and I want to tell you about the ABF Chili Supper this coming Saturday.

Animals Best Friends is having their annual Chili Supper at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 611 N. Liberty St., Independence, MO 64050. Our wonderful chili will be served from 6 to 7 p.m.; Bingo will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until 9 p.m.

I am a 6-year-old Lab mix with a sweet personality. I understand “sit” and am a pretty smart cookie. I love to play and enjoy the attention I get from my caregivers. I'm looking for a home of my own and would love to run and play in my own backyard.

The cost for the ABF Chili Supper is $8, this includes a bowl of chili, crackers, drink, dessert and one bingo card. Additional cards may be acquired for $1 donation each. ABF will also conduct raffles for some really good prizes.

Please come to our chili supper this Saturday and support homeless kids like me! Our chili supper is always lots of fun and the chili is awesome!

If you are looking for a great girl to join your family and think that I might be a good fit, please go to ABF's website at and complete an application.
