Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Betty-A647985

Hi, my name is Betty and my ID Number is A647985! 

Betty is a brown tabby cat who is two-years and five-months-old with light-green eyes and a delicate, rust-colored nose. She’s a loving little lady who enjoys the simpler things in life – long naps in the afternoon, bird watching through the window, and snuggling up close to a loved one. Betty would love to find a forever family that can provide those things for her, and in return, she promises to see you through all of life’s ups and downs with her gentle purring as motivation. She will be an amazing pet for one lucky family!

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Best Buddy Center in Maryland Heights. Click here for hours and directions.

Ella-A647633

Hi, my name is Ella and my ID Number is A647633!

Ella is sugar and spice, with everything nice. She’s an eight-year-old Domestic Shorthair with a sweet personality tempered with just enough sassiness to make her an incredibly charming personality to have around. Ella has a gorgeous, tabby-calico coat and wants to be the center of your world, so she prefers a home without other cats so she can keep all of the toys to herself. If you’re looking for a playful kitty who also knows how to settle down for a good nap, look no further than Ella!

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Chesterfield Valley Center. Click here for hours and directions.

Maddie-A658669

Hi, my name is Maddie and my ID Number is A658669!

Maddie is a seven-years-young Beagle who’s fur may be starting to turn grey, but her heart is as gold as ever! Maddie is a wonderful and loving girl who greets all of her visitors with a gentle tail wag and an expression that just begs you to pet her. She’s very well mannered and walks well on a leash, and while at the Human Society of Missouri has shown a preference for using the bathroom outside. Maddie is the perfect dog for anyone needing a walking partner who also doubles as the perfect snuggle buddy!

Hi, my name is Cleo and my ID Number is A660510!

Cleo is a stunning mixture of German Shepherd Dog and Siberian Husky with all of the intelligence, drive, and athleticism of both. Although she’s ten-months-old and weighs fifty-three pounds, she’s still quite the puppy and has lots of young-dog energy and would love an active family that can take her for long walks and play tug-of-war or fetch. Cleo is well socialized and enjoys being around kids and other dogs, and she already knows how to sit, lay down, and to give you her paw when you ask. With her eager-to-please attitude and willingness to learn, she will grow to be the best friend you’ve ever had!

To adopt: Apply in person at HSMO’s Chesterfield Valley Center. Click here for hours and directions.

Hi, my name is Dewey and my ID Number is A655908! 

Dewey might have a dark coat, but he has a personality as bright as sunshine! This one-year-old Lab mix is hoping to find a forever family that will let him indulge in all of his favorite activities – going for walks in the neighborhood, snuggling up on the couch, and chewing on appropriate dog toys. Dewey weighs forty-nine pounds and is probably very close to being his adult size and seems to already prefer using the bathroom outside, however he’s still a puppy with much to learn and in need of plenty of playtime to keep him tired and happy. This sweet boy can’t wait to meet you!

Meet Anastasia, the Purina Pet of the Week!

Anastasia-A657348
Purina proudly feeds the animals of the Humane Society of Missouri

Hi, my name is Anastasia and my ID Number is A657348!

Anastasia is a five-year-old pup with a long face – not because she’s sad, but because she’s built like a small horse! She’s a big girl weighing in at nearly one-hundred pounds, and she really knows how to put the ‘great’ in Great Dane. She loves her people but loves attention even more, and when she’s getting a good scratch on the back she’ll really lean her whole body into it and you! Anastasia isn’t just part dog and part horse, but she’s also part Princess and would love a family without very young children or other female dogs so that she can get all of the affection she craves.
