The Southwest Missouri Humane Society was incorporated in 1956 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of homeless animals. We are a traditional "open admission" Humane Society; we have no limits to the number of animals we will accept from private citizens and no charges for accepting them. As such, the Humane Society is the only shelter of its kind in this region, serving a population of 480,000 in a nine county area. Our primary purpose is to provide care and shelter for unwanted and homeless animals and to find good homes for as many healthy, adoptable animals as possible. While the majority of our adoptions are local, we also place animals with other shelters and with breed-specific rescue groups from across the nation. We have also supplied dogs to be trained as drug and bomb detection dogs.

In addition to serving private citizens, we serve the various small town governments in our region as an outsource for placement of the stray animals obtained through their animal control agencies. This is done on a fee basis at a loss to the Humane Society.

Like all humane societies and SPCA's, the Southwest Missouri Humane Society is independent from all other animal welfare organizations and is a privately funded non-profit organization, receiving no funding from any government or national humane organization source. Ninety-five percent of our funding comes either from adoption fees or local private contributions and ninety percent of expenditures go directly towards caring for the animals.
