Last month Animals Best Friends had to reschedule their Sweetheart Bingo event due to construction at the National Guard Armory Building. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused, but it was beyond our control.

ABF is having its annual Sweetheart Bingo event on March 10, at the National Guard Armory Building, 2323 S. Crysler Ave., Independence. Doors open at 5 p.m. and admission is $10, which includes dinner, dessert and one Bingo card.

Additional Bingo cards will be available for $1 each. There will also be raffles and silent auction items. A kissing booth will be there and manned by some of the sweetheart ABF dogs. Kisses are $1 each.

If you love Bingo and dogs, you’ll love this event. Come and bring your friends and family for a great time.

ABF is looking for volunteers for various jobs at their rescue facility, who are dependable, hard-working individuals and have a love for animals. If interested, go to or call 816-254-8664.
