​Most of our effort is focused on helping shelter cats find homes. Every Saturday our members transport cats and dogs from our local shelter to the Joplin PetSmart for adoption.  We sponsor many “last chance” shelter pets by paying part of or all of their adoption fees.


PetSmart adoption numbers 2014-2018=1320 cats and 596 dogs adopted at PetSmart


We do not take cats from individuals but focus on helping cats stay in the home where they are already living. We are available to advise cat owners with difficult situations such as litter box issues, scratching post training and more. As a very last resort we can assist owners in finding homes for their cats or kittens when they can no longer care for them. 


You can also make your contribution. We have an excellent volunteer program that moves a line of action with the greatest impact on our organization. Ask Us!

We invite you to learn more about our services and activities here on our website. Do not hesitate to contact us to get more information. We are happy to support you.
