With proper training, love, and affection, Pit Bulls are readily "Man's Best Friend."

We're celebrating hugga-bull, lovea-bull Pit Bulls at all Humane Society of Missouri Adoption Centers!

  • Knowledgable adoption counselors and volunteers are on hand to answer questions and share the "irresist-a-bull" traits of the often misunderstood pit bull.

  • Adopt a pit bull or pit bull mix age six months and older for just $50!

These kiss-a-bull, honor-a-bull pit bulls have all received:

  • spay/neuter surgery,
  • vaccinations,
  • microchip identification,
  • initial Frontline flea treatment and HeartGard heartworm preventative,
  • temporary collar and tag,
  • and of course, tons of TLC from HSMO staff.

View adoptable dogs and visit an HSMO Adoption Center to find your new best bully buddy!
Adoption fee does not include $10 rabies tag fee.


It doesn't matter what side you choose in this debate - everyone wins when you take home one of our demoCAT or rePAWbulican candidates!

Our adoptable cats and kittens are campaigning on the platform of finding forever homes with discounted adoption fees:
October 17 through October 23, adopt a kitten for just $75, or an adult cat over six months of age for NO adoption fee*!

In order to prepare for their role of cat- or kitten-in-chief, they've received extra TLC, been examined by trained professionals for good health and temperament and socialized by Humane Society of Missouri staff and volunteers. 

To better assume the role of PURResident in their new home, each cat and kitten comes with all kinds of campaign promises, such as:

 Spay/Neuter Surgery  $100
 Necessary Vaccinations  $45
 Microchip  $25
 Initial Flea Treatment  $10
Feline Leukemia Test $15
Sheltering Costs $60
Temporary tag/collar $5
Extra TLC from our staff Priceless

It costs the Humane Society of Missouri nearly $260 to care for each cat and kitten in our care - whether they're a demoCAT or a rePAWblican! Your donation of any amount helps cover the cost of their care.

Adoption Savings for Seniors: 

Having a pet offers new ways to enjoy this stage of your life, and can even make you feel younger! The world is becoming more pet-friendly every day, and pets can help make your lifestyle healthier. They can change your outlook on life, bring families together, or even help us get to know our neighbors. 

On Wednesdays, the Humane Society offers $20 off the adoption fee for adopters 55 years of age and older.
