Photos of all animals currently housed in our animal shelter can be found in a photo gallery (link below). If you see an animal that you believe belongs to you, call (417) 833-3592 or send an e-mail to [email protected] to find out more about viewing and claiming it. We strongly recommend owners view animals in person before assuming it belongs to them.
We rely on our numerous rescue partners to decide which animals are going to make the best pets for people. Once they pull animals from our shelter, they quarantine them for at least two weeks to make sure they are healthy. Spay/neuter procedures will also take place while the animal is in care of the rescue, along with many other standard health tests for conditions such as heartworm or feline leukemia. By adopting out animals in this manner, we see less than 1% of animals return to the shelter.
