Our volunteer based shelter cannot accept owner surrenders.If you find yourself needing to re-home a pet we have many resources to offer to help with that.To remain a low kill shelter IF YOU FIND an animal or one perhaps comes to your home the right thing to do is to help the animal find it's home or find the animal a home. 'Tips on Finding a Home for a Pet' can be found on the PETFINDER home page..Abandoning animals is illegal in Missouri.  The Clinton Animal Rescue Endeavor organization is a small group of animal loving volunteers, if you love animals and would like to find out more about joining our mission of saving lives please feel free to call the shelter at 660-885-7999. We have very few fosters and the Clinton Shelter is a small housing facility.  Clinton city codes and Missouri state regulations do apply in our daily operation which means our capacity is limited as well as the funds.Abandoning animals is illegal in Missouri.  Yes, it really IS illegal to dump an animal!

Adopting a friend

Adoption of all our pets include spay or neutered, rabies vaccination, along with a distemper/parvo combo and bordatella for dogs and FVRCP for cats, all dogs get micro-chipped. The cost of the adoptions vary.To help promote the adoptions of pets we occasionally have unannounced “specials” for discount prices, but “specials” still include everything that is provided by a regular adoption.Adopters must be 18 years of age or older and must consent to home visits.


FYI... According to statistics from PETA, the people for the ethical treatment of animals, one dog and her pups can produce 67,000 puppies in six years. One cat and her offspring could 370,000 kittens in seven years.  Many of those animals may be neglected, abused, or euthanized due to overpopulation.  Be a responsible owner and spay/neuter all of your pets!

FOSTERING is more beneficial than you can imagine.Being fostered is his/her opportunity for a cat or dog to prepare for his forever home. He will have more one-on-one time with humans, and he can experience more of the world around him instead of being limited to the confines of the shelter. It can significantly increase his chances of fitting in with his next family. Companion pets can do wonders for any human. Companion pets help you to appreciate the world around you they help us to remember the wonders that we take for granted. So if you're stressed or anxious, it goes away for that moment when it's just you and your companion pet. In an instant, they can help you feel calm. They just come in and make it happen without a word.

URGENT Fostering isn't just good for the dog or cat. Foster homes needed for small dogs and kittens. If you can provide a safe, loving temporary environment for a homeless dog or kitten until we find placement in a Forever home please call the Clinton Animal Shelter at 660-885-7999 or you can call Heidi at 660-351-0472 or Glenda at 660-351-5080.
