Resources for Pet Parents During COVID-19


The Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) and Animal Medical Center of Mid-America (AMCMA) are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and we’re here for pet parents in this time of uncertainty. Below are some helpful resources for you and your pet.

Limiting the spread of the coronavirus is on everyone’s mind, and many people are correct to follow recommendations to stay home. But sometimes a trip to the veterinarian, or at least an initial phone call, is necessary, especially if your pet is showing signs of infection, distress, or in need of vaccinations.

When in doubt if you should make an appointment, give the team at AMCMA a call. They are here to help! And if you’d like more information on virtual vet visits, curbside prescription pick up, or home delivery of pet medications, click here.

The Animal Medical Center of Mid-America has veterinarians at two locations that can answer questions about your pet’s health. Call 314-951-1534 or click here to request an appointment online.

During this time of social isolation, fewer things make staying indoors and working at home more fun than a new pet.

With the recent increase in pet fostering from local shelters as well as the uptick in adoptions via HSMO’s new adoption curbside pickup, it’s important for pet parents to know the best tips and tricks for welcoming your new friend.

Please remember, you’re doing something awesome! Adopting or fostering a shelter pet can be a lot of work, but it’s important to remember the good deed you’re doing. You’re providing an animal with a safe and happy home, and in return, you’re receiving unconditional love and affection.

Oftentimes, these rescued animals have had a rough first chapter and you’re helping make their next one much happier. Looking for more help with training and behavior? Click HERE!

As we continue to care for the animals in our shelters, we are incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of our community. As we do not receive public taxes or funding, we appreciate any contributions you are able to make at this time.

We don’t know exactly what tomorrow will bring, but we remain committed to our staff and to the abused, neglected, and abandoned animals we serve. You can help these animals in need by making a gift.

Please GIVE TODAY and your gift will go where it’s needed most.
