People have been bringing lost cats and dogs to the Sumner
County Humane Society by the dozens.
Even the dogs that do have tags with contact information are
having problems getting back to their owners. Calls are placed
to the homes on their tags, but the houses have been flattened.
The humane society is preparing to provide temporary shelter
for several weeks while owners work to get their homes in order.
The shelter has been accepting donations of food and pet
Since some of the pets were also injured in the storm, the
society can use cash donations to help with vet bills. The
public can either take or mail your donation to the Sumner
County Humane Association
Note: People and organizations are contributing food.
Purina Pet Food is contributing 40,000 lbs of Pet Food.

2006, Shirley Mondeaux, circulating email
Due to the devastation in several Missouri counties,
shelters are overflowing with pets and strays.
Unfortunately they can only hold them for a limited time for
the owner to claim and time is running out quickly.
Please contact us if you know of any rescues that would be
willing to pick up, foster and adopt or help with funding
for the cost of vaccinations at the shelters, a health
certificate, spaying or neutering, etc.
time, we have gotten few responses from rescue groups
willing to transport and we urgently need to get these dogs
out. If anyone has any rescue contacts in the MO area and
can get them to come to pick up and foster/adopt please get
in contact with me as soon as possible at:
firstname.lastname@example.org or Connie Foster at email@example.com
Individuals may also adopt but
would need to abide by the guidelines of the SW MO K9s. If
you are interested in adopting, please e-mail the addresses
Thank you so much for caring.
