Hello, my name is Toby and I want to tell you that Animals Best Friends “Shoe Fundraiser” deadline has been extended. You may drop off your unwanted shoes at the ABF Facility located at 2302 S Crysler, Independence, Mo. Drop off hours are from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. ABF greatly appreciates your help.

I am a handsome Labrador Retriever mix with possibly some Aussie in me as well. The ABF caregivers tell me that I have the most beautiful eyes! I am only two years old and have good house manners. I can sit and shake on command and love to please my people. In the summertime I really love playing in the kiddie pool splashing in the water. I am outgoing and very friendly and would love to have a family to call my own. Fetch is a favorite game of mine and I love to romp and play in the yard. All the ABF caregivers tell me how much they love me and want to see me get a great forever home.

If you are looking for a great family dog and think I might be a good fit, please go to our website, www.animalsbestfriends.org, and complete an application. I would really love to get a home for the holidays!

Also, don’t forget about the ABF Shoe Fundraiser. All donations are appreciated!
