All dogs & humans here have been enjoying the unseasonably warm weather! Pleased to have found a number of forever homes this month, especially one for a sweet senior. Also Stevie was adopted, but we sure need more interest in her fast growing large hound mix puppies!
A special thank you to the Jefferson City AT&T Store for their help this month!??
CHAS requires potential adopters to complete our adoption application and get it approved before adopting a pet. (We will be happy to email or mail you one.) The person responsible must be at least 18 years of age. Our animals are in need of loving homes. They don't care about your race, gender, income or whether you have status in the community, so why should we? Our goal is solely to find them responsible, caring, forever homes. Part of that involves doing our best to place a particular dog or cat in a home that will be a comfortable fit for them as well as their adoptor.
PLEASE, PLEASE try not to take it personally or get upset with us if you aren't selected for the pet you wanted. Rarely is it because we deem a person an unfit pet parent! Unlike public shelters are simply not a 1st come, 1st served facility. Nor do we hoard animals as a few mean-spirited folks claim, when they or a friend didn't get the pet they wanted
We personally spend a great deal of time with our animals, pour a lot of love in them & are often quite bonded. We take each adoption seriously and base our decision on each individual's best interest. Usually, we have valuable knowledge to share with an adopter. Also, we're here to help if needed after the adoption. It may take us as long as 10 days to process an application.
Callaway Hills Animal Shelter (CHAS) is a private, NON profit, NO KILL shelter located in central Missouri. Since the early 1980's we have cared for thousands of unwanted, abused and neglected animals. We do our best to find loving adoptive homes for all of them. Sadly, our founder and benefactor passed away in 2007. Consequently, we lost our primary source of funding, which was from her former corporation. We have managed to keep our doors open & still rescue as many homeless pets as possible. We are so grateful for the kind, caring donors who enable us to continue helping the helpless....
DIRECTIONS: Located in Central Mo on Callaway Hills Stable, midway between Jefferson City & Fulton, our shelter is barely off HWY 54. If you are coming from I70, you will Exit at Kingdom City, & head towards Jefferson City/Lake Ozark. In about 20 minutes you will see New Bloomfield exit AE-TT. Exit and turn left, which takes you back across the HWY, then our drive is an immediate right. If you use GPS: 2714 State Rd TT, 65063 will land you on or near Stable property. The land is divided in 3 tracts by roads. The shelter is located on the tract East of 54, just off the HWY.
VISITING HOURS: We are always happy to have visitors. Normally, we're glad to show people around any time. However, in order to insure we are able to make progress with our basic chores, we are officially open to the public, without appointment from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. every day of the week.
CONTACT: To insure we have someone available who can spend plenty of time with you or if you need to come after hours, please do call to arrange a special appointment. The shelter phone is 573 896-4049. Quite possibly you will get our machine, as workers can't always hear the ring. Your call will be returned as quickly as possible.
