The mission of the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri is to aid in the alleviation of distress and suffering of animals by operating a shelter for animals in need of care, placing animals in suitable homes when possible, and offering educational programs that promote animal welfare.
The Humane Society of Southwest Missouri is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization licensed by the Missouri Department of Agriculture. We operate the only open-admission humane society in Southwest Missouri. No limits are placed on the number or type of dogs or cats accepted at our shelter. We will not refuse an ill or injured animal or any animal that is not an immediate candidate for adoption.
Funding for the organization comes from private donations. We do not receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society of Missouri, SPCA, or any government agencies.
