Mission Statement

The Humane Society of Missouri is dedicated to second chances. We provide a safe and caring haven to all animals in need--large and small--that have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Our mission is to end the cycle of abuse and pet overpopulation through our rescue and investigation efforts, spay/neuter programs and educational classes. We are committed to creating lasting relationships between people and animals through our adoption programs. We further support that bond by making available world-class veterinary care, and outstanding pet obedience and behavior programs.


The Humane Society of Missouri is an animal welfare organization that strives to end the cycle of abuse, neglect, and pet overpopulation.

We have four locations where people can volunteer their efforts to help Missouri's animals: St. Louis City on Macklind Avenue, Maryland Heights in the Westport area, and Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO.
