HSMO Curbside Adoptions Available Now!

In an effort to reduce the number of animals still in the shelters while also maintaining necessary social distancing, pre-approved adopters will now be able to adopt a pet via curbside pickup.

Curbside Adoption Details:

Those who are serious about adoption and want to take advantage of being at home with their new pet can fill out an interest form and go to hsmo.org/adopt to view available animals at both HSMO shelter locations. Once the adopter has found the pet they’d like to adopt, they should contact the appropriate shelter as noted in the pet description via phone to go through the application process and interview. Call (314) 951-1562 for the Macklind Ave. Headquarters and (314) 951-1588 for the Best Buddy Pet Center in Maryland Heights.

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.
