My story

Meet Alexander! With 5 years of practice, Alexander is a pro at eating treats and making humans laugh. He's a chunky boy full of happiness and he'd love to meet you. The only thing he asks is that he's the only fur baby in the home, but he'll give you his all. Alexander has had a loving home before, and he's missing that feeling. If you'd like to give him a chance, visit him at the shelter! No appointment needed.

More about this shelter

The Mission of the Southwest Missouri Humane Society shall be to aid in the alleviation of distress and suffering of animals; to participate in educational programs and disseminate information to promote animal welfare and to operate a shelter for animals in need of care and place such animals in suitable homes when possible.
We receive our animals from people giving up their pets for a variety of reasons including changes in family situations and moving. Some of our animals have been strays rescued from the streets by a kind citizen. But all of our animals are looking for permanent homes.
