The Maury County Animal Shelter in Columbia, MO hosts the only free-roaming shelter for homeless and needy animals. Check out their website for more information or to help out.
The shelter is located at 4545 N. Grand Ave, Columbia.
The shelter is open 24/7, so you can drop by during the day or you can drop by at any time during the day to check in. You can also talk to the staff about getting a donation to help the animals at the shelter.
Every year when the shelter was first established, the board decided to donate $50,000 to help the shelter. That donation has helped pay for the shelter’s operating costs, which has helped the shelter survive. The shelter’s future is bright because it is the only free-roaming animal shelter in Missouri. You can also visit the shelter at any time.
If you’re not one of the first people to drop by, you should be. If you do, please say thanks. We hope you’ll stick around and help the shelter out.
To the rest of the world, the shelter is a huge success. It has helped save over 11,000 animals from being euthanized.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to visit the shelter or drop off a donation, I’d suggest that you get a free map of the shelter. It’s just a few steps away from the main entrance, and there are plenty of pictures of the shelter’s animals.
The main entrance is really just a large metal door. Inside, there are a few other rooms. The first is a small shelter with a few cages. The second room has a large cage and some more cages. The third room has two large cages. The last room is a more typical veterinary area. There are a couple of exam rooms, a full kennel, a small veterinary office, and a small area for the animal transport.
If you visit the animal shelter, you will notice that the cages have some pretty interesting features. For example, one of the cages has a ladder to go up to the ceiling. It’s pretty cool.
The cat and dog area of the shelter is actually the one that I personally found the most interesting. As soon as I walked through the door, I knew I needed to check it out. I immediately knew I would be in for a whole lot of cat/dog interaction. You can’t expect to get everything out of a small dog, but I did see that one of the dogs had a pretty good chance of killing me.
