During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Humane Society of Missouri 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 are an open admissions shelter meaning that we take all animals who come to our doorrs regardless or breed or condition. As an open admissions shelter, there are times in which we have to make the difficult decision to euthanize an animal in our care. This is done when an animal is too ill to be further helped or is too aggressive to be safely placed in a home.
We DO NOT euthanize for space in the shelter. THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT FOR OUR ADOPTABLE ANIMALS.
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, Chesterfield Valley at Boone's Crossing, and Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO.
