Hello, my name is Libby. I was flea infested, anemic and wandering the streets when I was rescued by Animals Best Friends. Now I’m healthy, happy and looking for my forever home. I’m about six months old. They tell me I’m likely part terrier and part Chihuahua. I’m little, weighing about eight pounds, but I’m leggy. I love to run and jump!

I also love giving people good news! The ABF Semi-Annual Garage Sale is coming up in two weeks! This is the perfect time for all of you to clean out your basements, attics, and garages, so you can donate items to the sale. ABF volunteers will be accepting items from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 8 at our facility, 2302 S. Crysler Ave., Independence. If you have any big items like furniture to donate, please call ABF at 816-254-8664 and leave a message for Dianne or Jerry to make arrangements for pickup or delivery times. ABF asks that you please do not donate clothing or shoes.

The garage sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 10 across the street at the National Guard Armory, 2323 S. Crysler Ave. This is always a huge sale and is a great fundraiser for the organization. Lots of people come to the sale and there is always a huge amount of items for bargain hunters to choose from.

I’m excited about the sale and even more excited about getting a really good home! I would love to be in a home with a family of my own. I love dogs, cats, older children, and I really love to sit in an adult’s lap. Maybe I should have been a lap cat.

If you are looking for a cute little dog to join your family and think I might be a good fit, please go to the ABF website at www.animalsbestfriends.org and complete an application. ABF does home visits and two week trials to be sure that we dogs and our cat friends will get good forever homes.

Animals Best Friends wish list includes: Purina Dog, Puppy, Cat and Kitten Chow, dog and cat treats and chews, cow hooves or rawhides, canned dog and cat food, stuffed (no beads) and Kong toys, laundry detergent, bleach, Fantastic spray, Dawn dish liquid, paper towels, newspapers, 39 gallon trash bags, blankets, sheets, cat litter. There is a paper recycling bin in the parking lot at ABF Headquarters, 2302 S. Crysler Ave., Independence. Please, no cardboard or telephone books. We appreciate your support.
