Please join us at the shelter on December 5th at 3pm to participate in our Tree of Remembrance Celebration.
The holidays are a time to show our beloved animal companions how much they mean to us, and to reflect on the memory of loved ones no longer with us. This festive celebration of lights will help pets who need safe shelter, loving care and a fresh start. Acknowledge your four-legged loved ones, past and present, and help homeless pets this season through Joplin Humane Society's annual Tree of Remembrance and reading of honored pets names.
A $5 donation will illuminate one light. Feel free to light as many as you like for family and friends. Each light will make a lifesaving difference to an animal in need.
Check out our "Vintage Dogs"
Everyone loves “The Good Old Days”…..well, we love “the Good Old Dogs”….the VINTAGE DOGS!! Vintage Dogs are not necessarily OLD dogs, Vintage Dogs are amazing dogs of all ages currently in our shelter that have been waiting a long time to find the right home.
Imagine how sad it must be for them, watching their doggy friends come and go, seeing other dogs getting picked by families, while they sit waiting. Vintage Dogs just wait, hoping that maybe today a family will stop at their kennel and choose them.
Vintage Dogs will be available to approved homes FREE! All Vintage Dogs will be altered, current on all vaccines including rabies, micro-chipped, de-wormed AND treated for fleas and ticks. Don’t miss this opportunity to adopt your new best friend FOR FREE and help a dog who surely believes that he or she has been forgotten. Today is they day that YOU can change their life!
Community support through sponsorship is critical in allowing us to continue the Vintage Dog Program. Please consider sponsoring a Vintage Dog for only $50. Your donation will go a long way in helping us keep this wonderful, life-saving program going.
