My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Murphy is pretty low energy, laid back kitty. Doesn’t require much but does enjoy the hide a treat puzzle games, a little petting now and then and observing his surroundings. His allergy’s flare up every once in awhile so sometimes he has the sniffles. We treat with an otc med when they flare up.

Take the Pet Home

Please give your new family member time to adjust to your home - they are unfamiliar with their new life, be patient and kind with them.

Additional adoption info

We require an adoption application, screening to ensure all current or previous pets have been vaccinated and spayed/neutered, and an adoption contract. A home check may be required, depending on individual circumstances. We want you to succeed, and will provide support and referrals for you as needed.

Regular adoption fees are $105 for dogs and $45 for cats, which include age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies, spay/neuter, worming and flea preventative.

Before adoption we make every effort to assure
your new pet is healthy, but you will need to have
the pet examined by your own vet within a week
to check for good health.
• Any animal leaving our shelter is required by law
to be spayed or neutered!
• Dog adoption fees begin at $105 depending on
vet bills – this includes spay or neuter,
worming, rabies and DA2PP vaccinations.
Adopters of dogs and/or puppies will need a
fenced area or an alternative for exercise, a veterinarian for reference, and other
evidences of their ability to provide good care to the
animal as a member of the family.
• Cat adoption fees start at $45 and include spay or
neuter, worming, rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. All cats are planned to be inside cats – although
occasionally we have a cat or cat family that would be suitable or outside or barn cats. Spay and neuter and
vet requirements are the same as for dogs.

More about this rescue

Carol Sue Weigel (1939-2015), a lifelong animal advocate, started Stover Animal Rescue in 2005 by obtaining a federal 501(c)3 tax exempt IRS designation, as well as all the appropriate Missouri licenses and legal requirements for a non-profit animal rescue. Carol Sue worked tirelessly to encourage friends and acquaintances to help support her efforts with donations of time, money, transportation, and thrift shop and animal care items. After the property at 709 W. 4th Street in Stover was donated to the shelter, the owners of Morrow Scrivner Funeral Home donated their old building to her.

We are a small rural 501(c)3 public animal rescue charity – continuing to operate completely by unpaid volunteers. In August 2016 the name of the shelter was changed back to Stover Animal Rescue. Since then, we have taken in abused, abandoned, and stray cats and dogs as we have space and the resources to care for them; we rehab them and get them healthy, and then try to find the best match for a forever home. As a NO-Kill shelter, animals are only euthanized if mental or physical illness makes a reasonable quality of life impossible – and this decision would be determined by a licensed veterinarian.

In addition to improving our coordination of volunteer opportunities for seniors and students, we plan for building and grounds improvement; and assisting to provide local community services such as low cost spay/neuter or vet clinic days, education events, trap-neuter-return community services, and other animal-related programs. We hope to expand our animal rescue and sanctuary efforts to an acreage donated for that purpose.
