HSMO Rescues More than 25 Animals from Clinton County Home

On Aug. 25, the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force conducted a rescue in Clinton County, recovering more than 25 animals from inhumane conditions. This rescue was in cooperation with local law enforcement, and the animals recovered include nine dogs, 10 cats (five of them being kittens), five chickens, a sugar glider, and hamster — all from a private residence in Lathrop, MO. Deceased animals were also found on the property.

All the rescued animals have been brought to HSMO’s St. Louis City headquarters, where are receiving professional and compassionate veterinary care and rehabilitation. HSMO expects to make these animals available for adoption once they have recuperated.
