Mission Statement

HELP Humane is a 501(c)(3) corporation committed to ending the suffering and killing of homeless, abused and neglected animals by rescuing, sheltering, rehabilitating and seeking forever families for these animals and educating the public on proper pet guardianship and the importance of spaying and neutering. HELP Humane sanctuaries the animals that are deemed un-adoptable either due to the animal?s physical or psychological circumstances.


HELP Humane was incorporated in 1996 and received non-profit status in March 1998. We are composed of a hard working group of dedicated volunteers who until 2005 worked solely out of foster homes. Even without a facility we took in over 200 animals in 2004 and provided them with love, shelter, food, and vet care until loving permanent homes were found. We are a true no-kill shelter.

HELP established a facility at 511 Main Street in Belton, Missouri in 2005. We are now located at 17122 Bel Ray Place where HELP continues to maintain its reputation for total dedication and quality of care.

In addition to its shelter work, HELP continues its work with feral cats--trapping and transporting the cats to and from the veterinary clinic where they are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and then returned into the neighborhoods they know as home.

I would like to be a volunteer because I love helping animals in need. Taking care and helping animals are my specialty and I really enjoy taking care and helping out with animals also I believe that it would be great experience for my future.

I am sereniti Earl-Haberstock and I am 13 years old. I am in the National Junior Honor Society in Belton middle school/freshmen center, when I grow up I would like to be a veterinarian, so this right in my working area. I have already learned so much about animals and animal behaviors. I would not mind cleaning up feces or scooping litter, brushing and so much more chores for cats and dogs etc.. Since I am still in school the 26 might work with me and might not it depends what time, so please email me at sereniti.haberstock@students.bsd124.org or sereniti.ear.haberstock@gmail.com

We adopted a sweet kitten from this shelter located in Belton, MO. The shelter is amazing. Very clean and everyone that works there were great! We went several times to visit our adopted baby, since she wasn't quite ready for us to take home, and we were impressed each and every time we showed up. My favorite part is how the most of the cats are free-roaming so you can get to know them and see how they interact with other cats! We will still stop by just give all of the cats much needed love and attention. Although, I do think that the personnel there do an incredible job of that too!

This is a beautiful shelter. I'd rate it tops in the KC area for cleanliness, lovely housing for the cats, and friendliness/helpfulness by the volunteers. I was there to look for a special cat for my home and I was so, so impressed. Almost all of the cats are in a free-roaming area with others so you can see how they will get along with other felines, and the quality of their life there looks wonderful. A great place to adopt a feline family member.

We adopted our kittie Katie in 2006 and have been a supporter of HELP ever since. Under the direction of Cindi Dill, this little shelter does a big job. They give many animals the second chance they might not receive at shelters less dedicated to a true no-kill philosophy. The work very much depends on volunteers and help is always needed and welcomed. If you are looking for a place where your contribution in time, effort, and money will really make a difference HELP is the place you are looking for.
