Photos of all animals currently housed in our animal shelter can be found in a photo gallery (link below). If you see an animal that you believe belongs to you, call (417) 833-3592 or send an e-mail to email@example.com to find out more about viewing and claiming it. We strongly recommend owners view animals in person before assuming it belongs to them.
We rely on our numerous rescue partners to decide which animals are going to make the best pets for people. Once they pull animals from our shelter, they quarantine them for at least two weeks to make sure they are healthy. Spay/neuter procedures will also take place while the animal is in care of the rescue, along with many other standard health tests for conditions such as heartworm or feline leukemia. By adopting out animals in this manner, we see less than 1% of animals return to the shelter.

Engine companies also respond to medical emergencies, which make up a majority of our calls.
Ladder trucks or truck companies are strategically positioned around the city to respond to fire calls, motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies and service calls. These large trucks consist of a hydraulically operated aerial device, usually 100 feet in length, many with platforms for safety, fire suppression and rescue operations. These platforms can hold up to 4 people. A truck can be utilized to reach up to six to eight stories of high-rise buildings. Trucks can also be utilized to deliver master water streams on a fire of up to 1,500 gallons per minute.
Trucks carry a wide assortment of equipment including a full compliment of hand-raised ground ladders, ranging from 10 to 35 feet in length. Several power saws are carried for forcing entry and ventilation. Trucks carry salvage covers that are used to cover undamaged furniture and fixtures during firefighting operations. Additionally, trucks carry hydraulic extrication equipment, commonly referred to as the "Jaws of Life", which can be sued to extricate victims trapped in vehicle accidents or collapse situations. Engines carry enough self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) units for each crew member, emergency medical car equipment, including an automated external defibrillator (AED).
