About Us

The Humane Society of Ray County is a volunteer, independent animal shelter helping dogs and cats without homes. We have no affiliation with the Ray County government.

All animals accepted at the shelter are spayed or neutered before being offered for adoption. Before and after spaying or neutering we house, feed, and care for our charges until they can be adopted.

All staff members are volunteers. We do not have any paid staff. The only payments we make to individuals go to the veterinarian who provides spaying, neutering, and care for ill animals.  

Our facilities are in the former Ray County Jail, provided to us at no cost through the generosity of Ray County, Missouri. All utilities and other expenses are paid for by the Society using donated funds.
