Volunteers help in many ways at our shelter. Some help with fundraisers, others help with animal transport, and there are some who prefer to help with cleaning or interacting with our animals.


Fund raising project this year include the annual lunch ( cooked by the Masons ) and silent auction at the Marceline Masonic Lodge, a booth at the Marceline 4th of July celebration, and collecting used cell phones and computer printer cartridges. Devoy-Baker Insurance in Brookfield is a year round collection point for cell phones and printer cartridges. We also have a annual golf tournament and our Cinco de Mayo dinner.

Feel free to call the shelter ( 660-258-3322 ) about questions, suggestions, or volunteer offers.

Volunteers Needed to Help Us Reach Our Goal!

     It is our goal to find a loving, caring, and safe home for every animal who is brought to the shelter. Many more animals come to our shelter than we are able to adopt out in our local area. To meet our goal, Eleanor Ravens has contacted animal shelters and rescue groups in Kansas City, Des Moines, St. Louis, Warrensburg, and other areas to see if they could place our adoptees. These shelters are not as overwhelmed with new pets and can locate excellent homes for our homeless animals. All we need to do is deliver them to the shelters or rescue groups. If you can help transport dogs and puppies, please call Eleanor. We have applied for a grant that would help us to purchase an all weather trailer designed specially to transport dogs and cats to shelters. Until then, even one trip will enable us to find good homes for dogs and cats placed in our care.

Thank you for your support. Without your financial support, we would not be able to continue caring for the homeless animals in our area.
