The Callaway County Humane Society is a resource in Callaway County for abandoned and homeless domesticated animals. We believe we can help to enrich the lives of our communty and their families through adoption services, lost and found reports, emergency food donations, education, and the prevention of cruelty by executing rescues.
At the heart of our organization is the vision that each animal impacted by us finds a permanent, compassionate home. We believe in a community in which people and animals are enriched by their special bond with one another, and where cruelty towards animals no longer exists. With this clear and unified understanding of our purpose, direction, and path we set out our core values.
CARE: We pledge to manage and contribute our resources to remain true to our mission. We will focus our time and and energy to achieve the greatest good, and to ensure the future of the humane society.
COMPASSION: Our actions and decisions are based on providing the best services to the most animals' whether that be through fostering, spay and neuter programs, or emergency food donations. We respect the life of each individual animal, while focusing on the welfare of our volunteers, community, and the animal population as a whole.
COMMUNITY-FOCUSED: We enrich our community by placing safe, healthy animals in responsible, loving homes, and provide free education to the public on ways to reduce the pet population, what to do when they see animal abuse, and also safe handling of stray animals that they may come across.
COURTESY: We treat all persons with diginity and respect in a non-judgmental manner. The general public, our board members, and volunteers are all viewed as our partners in improving the welfare of animals, and with this fulfilling our mission.
