Certain asocial felines in the community will be out roaming free at the behest of the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri. They recently announced that they will no longer be taking feral cats from the city’s animal control agency.

As part of a summer campaign, the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri has achieved their goal of finding homes over 500 animals in less than four months.

The shelter kicked off their “Save Them Summer” campaign on May 1. It was intended to last through August 31, that is, until they reached 512 animals adopted by August 20.

Development director Jennifer Sokolowski says the campaign was inspired by their drive to become a no-kill facility.

Animals awaiting adoption at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri can now get a day out thanks to a new program: Adventure Tails. Initiated this month, the program allows potential adopters, or people wishing for a few hours of animal companionship, to check a pet out for the day.

Executive director of the shelter, Tracy Poston, says it’s a great opportunity for those in pet-free apartments, or those on the fence about adopting an animal.

A ribbon cutting ceremony took place at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of their new isolation care unit. The new building functions as a quarantined space for sick animals undergoing treatment, while keeping healthy animals at the main shelter protected from incoming disease.


Charlotte Craig, Board President at the Humane Society, says since they don’t know what strays have been exposed to before they come into their care, they now can prepare for the instance of a serious illness.
