Hello, my name is Sasha and I’m a 2-year-old shepherd mix. I’m an Animals Best Friends dog and I’m looking for my forever home. I love people, have a sweet nature, and enjoy my walks. I’d love a family to call my own.

Also I want to tell you about the upcoming fundraisers that ABF is doing.

Right now we really need shoes! ABF is collecting gently used and new shoes for countries in need. We’ll take dress shoes, high heels, boots, sandals, and tennis shoes. We can earn money for all of them.

Shoes will be collected at the ABF building at 2302 S. Crysler Ave., Independence. Collection days are Friday and Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Please check our Facebook page for other collection dates that may possibly come up.

Two events are coming up this Saturday, September 30. The first one is at Bentley's Pet Stuff, Shoal Creek, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The location is 8752 N.E. 82nd Terrace, Liberty. Stop by and meet a few of our wonderful dogs looking for their forever homes.

The second event is Hambingo at Hamburger Mary's from 4 p.m.to 6 p.m. The location is 3700 Broadway, Suite 110, Kansas City, MO 64111. Please join us for a fun evening and help ABF! Bingo cards are 10 for $10 and we will have a 50/50 raffle.

If you’re looking for a very sweet dog to join your family won’t you please consider me? I’m on the ABF website along with my ABF brothers and sisters. The site is www.animalsbestfriends.org.

Please donate any shoes you can for our fundraiser and for a great time come to Hamburger Mary’s this Saturday. Animals Best Friends appreciates your support!
