Chesterfield Humane Society Closes
Effective Nov. 4, the Humane Society of Missouri’s facility in Chesterfield Valley closed.
The closure included operations of both the Adoption Center and Animal Medical Center of Mid-America at 17537 Edison Ave.
Humane Society of Missouri President Kathy Warnick says the Humane Society’s board of directors determined the best use of the organization’s human and financial resources in the future was to concentrate on continuing operations of HSMO’s two largest facilities: the Macklind Avenue headquarters in St. Louis City and the Best Buddy Pet Center in Maryland Heights.
“We are very grateful for the dedicated efforts of all of employees, volunteers and donors who contributed so much to fulfilling our mission in the Chesterfield area for the past 12 years,” Kathy says. “We also sincerely appreciate the support of this community in giving loving homes to our animals and patronizing our veterinary facilities.”
She says they were fortunate that the organization was in a position to offer employment elsewhere in the organization to nearly all of the employees based at Chesterfield Valley. Those leaving the organization were offered severance packages.
HSMO is the largest animal welfare organization in Missouri rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for adoptable animals.
