The Joplin Humane Society receives large donations that will help make the process of finding pets a little easier.
HP, Intel, Microsoft, Shelter Pro Software and Heartland Technology Solutions of Joplin donated more than $50,000 worth of products.
New laptops, computers, TV monitors, a touch screen kiosk and software that connects it all.
Joplin Humane Society shelter manager Lysa Buehler says that the donations will help residents searching for pets as well as the employees.
"We have new laptops we will be able to enter medical information, custumer service at the front is going to be a breeze, all the computers are going to be linked," says Buehler. "I felt before we were living in the Flintstones age, now we've moved to the Jetsons, so it's pretty cool."
The shelter says they have about 350 pets available for adoption that will be entered into the system.
