Why we need your help

The Central Missouri Humane Society is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit organization. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or ASPCA.

CMHS is not a municipal shelter- we are not run by the City of Columbia. We work alongside Columbia’s Animal Control and share our space with them. This contract only covers around 15% of our annual budget. CMHS would not exist without the support of our donors.

How your donation helps

The generosity of our donors provides us with the means to uphold our mission: to promote the well-being of companion animals- pets that enrich the lives of the people who love them.

  • Provides food, water, shelter, and comfort to our animals
  • Provides veterinary supplies¬†
  • Allows us to offer low-cost spay/neuter services to the public
  • Allows us to buy necessary supplies to keep our shelter running
  • Enables us to temporarily provide pet food and other resources to pet owners going through financial hardship.¬†

Please note: each year from Giving Tuesday (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving) until December 31, we use comogives.com for our online donations. If you are making a donation in memory or honor of someone, you may still do so on comogives.com by providing their info in the prompt. If you'd like to purchase a Shelter Me sponsorship, please make your gift amount for either $275 (cat condo) or $400 (dog kennel). Questions? Contact us at [email protected].
