Facts about Gus

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 62454
  • Hair: Unknown

This is Gus! This handsome senior boy was found living outside and being fed by some kind people. He had lived outside for some time before it was discovered that he was front paw declawed, which left him without his natural defenses and the couple who had been caring for him became concerned and contacted the shelter.It didn't take long to realize that Gus wasn't feeling very well and suspected this sweet guy could be an untreated diabetic. Our suspicion was confirmed after a thorough veterinary health exam and after a treatment plan that includes regular blood glucose monitoring and twice-daily insulin injections; we are glad to say Gus is now doing much better! Gus, boy, diabetic, born 2005

About HELP Humane

About Our Shelter...

Who We Are:

HELP Humane: HELP Humane Inc. is a non-profit organization currently run by a small group of animal lovers in Cass County, MO (just south of Kansas City).

All HELP animals are treated by veterinarians receive age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and those incoming after Oct 2005, have been micro chipped. Cats have been Feluk/FIV tested and are negative unless otherwise stated. Dogs have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative.

HELP now has a no-kill shelter. HELP does not take in any owner relinquished animals. HELP rescues stray dogs and cats from the streets. We have been told by many adopters that the reason they liked adopting form us is because we have a happy place and all the cats are the friendliest ones they had ever met. HELP feels that ALL animal’s are worth saving. We have many FIV and FeLV+ cats in our care. They will live with us until they end their life’s journey or find a permanent home.

Currently we are in a financial crisis and desperately need more funding to continue our mission. We are also currently in need of foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more pets we can help. We also need more volunteers and a grant writer. Of course donations of money and/or pet supplies are most helpful.

Our regular monthly meetings are at 7:00pm, the 1st Tuesday of each month. At our Shelter at 17122 Bel Ray Place, Belton, MO 64012.
