This is our 6th Annual Mums for Mutts (& Cats) ...beautiful 8" Mums for just $10, with lots of beautiful colors for everyone's taste! Sales start at 1:00 pm on Friday, October 2, 2020. Limited supplies, so get there early. Plus, all the proceeds go to supporting homeless pets here in the four states.
Please join us on Saturday, October 3, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for the Joplin Humane Society’s annual Pet Pics with local photographer Tara Buxton, owner of Likeable Likeness.
We will be set-up in the Education Room of the Joplin Humane Society. Just $20 per package and you choose your background. Background options include a fall or winter scene.
Lions, tigers and bears are not welcome,
BUT household animals and their families are invited to the Annual Blessing of the Pets on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. In the Pavilion behind the Joplin Humane Society, 140 E. Emperor Ln, Joplin.
Father Frank will be officiating the services again this year and providing individual blessings to each animal. Dog and cat treats will be provided by the good folks at the Saint Philip’s Episcopal Church. The event is free and all are welcome!
The event is held to commemorate the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. We welcome all our friends in the surrounding neighborhoods and towns to join with us on this day, to give thanks for all God’s creatures – especially our faithful animal companions – and ask for his continued blessings on our families, our community, and on all living things entrusted to our care.
Please note: Dogs should be on leashes; cats and other pets in carriers or cages. The event is rain or shine.
We are excited to be open for adoptions again, but we do have a few safety rules that will be in place.
There will only be 30 guests (not including staff) allowed in the shelter at one time. Some guests may be asked to wait at the door before entering. We will also be practicing 6 foot social distancing and limiting groups to no more than 10.
Please know these rules are for the safety of our staff, volunteers and customers. We hope to see you soon!
We are in desperate need of Foster Families...can you help?
