Big Is Beautiful Sale at Joplin Humane Society



Joplin Humane is bursting at the seams…especially with big dogs and adult cats! In hopes of finding these big beauties amazing homes, Joplin Humane Society proudly presents the BIG IS BEAUTIFUL SALE! All adult dogs over 40lbs, all adult cats and all large breed puppies over 4mos will be available for adoption to approved homes for just $25. Select small breed dogs will also be available for just $25.

“We have 231 pets currently available for adoption,” said Lysa Boston, Shelter Manager. “We also have 71 pets currently on stray hold that will come up for adoption if their owners do not come forward, and more pets are coming in every day.” Boston said 234 pets have come in since the first of May. “That’s an average of 16 pets a day,” she added.

$25 is a great deal,” said Connie Andrews, Shelter Service Manager. “The adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccines including rabies, spay/neuter, deworming, treatment for fleas and ticks and microchip, she explained. According to Andrews, the microchip alone generally costs $15.

The shelter hopes to find some wonderful forever homes, but wants to remind everyone that adopting a pet is like making a promise to the pet you choose to keep him or her for a lifetime. “Many of the pets in our shelter have ended up here not through no fault of their own, but because someone once thought they wanted a dog or cat and then realized they were not ready for the commitment required for pet ownership,” said Boston. “Please make sure that you are prepared to keep the promise of forever.”

The shelter is open Monday-Thursday from 1-5pm, Friday from 10-6pm, Saturday from 10-4pm and Sunday from 1-4pm.
