Give a Wag! Gives to Jefferson City Shelters

Dog lovers throughout Jefferson City, Missouri are dedicated to the wellbeing of their homeless, neglected, and surrendered cats and dogs. Jefferson City and the surrounding areas band together to generate positive results for the cats and dogs they help. Animals are taken in, nurtured back to health, and placed in loving, forever homes. With the work of the dedicated volunteers, veterinarians, and supporters throughout the community, animals are safe and well cared for until they are placed in their forever home.

The Jefferson City Animal Shelter is bursting with volunteers who work tirelessly day and night to guarantee the health of the pets. Once animals are taken into this shelter, they receive all of their necessary vaccinations, blood testing, spay and neutering, and all other health and training services each animal needs. Until animals are placed in their permanent homes, they are individually loved and cared for by the dedicated volunteers who make up this great non-profit. 

The Callaway Hills Animal Shelter in Holts Summit is another pawesome organization doing big things for pups of all sizes. The positive difference they make in the lives of animals everywhere ripples through the community and spreads compassion for animals to everyone. Effective and intentional care is provided by the loving staff and the animals are mindfully placed in their new forever homes with their happy humans.
