Outreach Activities


In addition to helping facilitate adoptions at the local city pound, we host several community outreach events. Held primarily on weekends, these events introduce our available dogs and cats to the public in a positive way. When possible, shelter animals accompany volunteers to these events to serve as ambassadors, to attract attention, and to interest the public in adoptions. Volunteers offer materials, such as education flyers & brochures, foster family flyers,  and special event flyers.




Get Involved


There are a variety of ways to get involved in saving the lives of animals. 

  • Volunteer or foster a pet for meaningful ways to experience first-hand how you can make a difference in the life of an animal. 

  • Help advocate for animal welfare at the state, county and city levels of government to make a lasting impact for Missouri animals. 

  • Stay up to date about off-site adoption and fundraiser events with our events calendar.
