Young Friends of the Humane Society of Missouri

Are you a young professional interested in donating your skills to help animals in need? Join the Young Friends of the Humane Society of Missouri!

Who We Are

We are a group of professionals in our 20’s and 30’s who are passionate about helping pets. We promote adoption, spay/neuter, and the proper treatment of all animals.

The goal of the Young Friends is to raise awareness and funds for homeless and abused animals in Humane Society of Missouri shelters.

What We Do

The Young Friends of the Humane Society of Missouri work on special projects and events to promote the organization. Our biggest Young Friends event, Barktoberfest, takes place every October at Urban Chestnut in Midtown. We also contribute to the success of Bark in the Park and other events throughout the year. As the group grows, we hope to spend more time promoting adoption and responsible pet ownership at community events.
