Women’s Leadership Council


The Humane Society of Missouri Women’s Leadership Council provides opportunities for professional women to connect with each other and direct their time, expertise and support toward making a lasting difference in the lives of abused, neglected or abandoned animals in St. Louis and Missouri.

The Humane Society of Missouri Women’s Leadership Council provides opportunities for professional women to connect with each other and direct their time, expertise and support toward making a lasting difference in the lives of abused, neglected or abandoned animals in St. Louis and Missouri.

In 2016, membership supported the Animal Cruelty Task Force (ACT) by raising more than $115,000! In 2017, WLC members have selected to support HSMO’s Shelter Veterinarians. These specialized veterinarians provide care for our rescued pets through disease prevention and medical rehabilitation, as well as emergency triage for the animal victims of hoarders, substandard breeding operations and disaster situations. Veterinarians also provide animal forensics, evidence, and expert testimony vital to animal abuse investigations.

Our shelter veterinarians were simply crucial to Bowie’s rehabilitation. Watch his inspiring story, featured in the 2017 HSMO telethon.
