Please consider adopting your next family pet. Big dogs, small dogs, puppies, seniors, cats and kittens are all waiting at our shelter to find their forever homes. By adopting a shelter pet you’ll help save the lives of two animals – the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.

KQ2 TV has graciously offered to host a live Pet-Adopt-A-Thon for the New Nodaway Humane Society on Wednesday, October 7. We are so thankful for this opportunity to promote our cause and to help raise funds for our animals. But we need your help!

We are seeking volunteers to help transport and handle animals during the LIVE event from 5-5:30 p.m. We plan to leave Maryville at 4 p.m. and head to the station in St. Joseph. To volunteer, sign up online (http://tinyurl.com/NNHSVolunteer) or contact the shelter directly at 660-562-3333.

BarkBox + NNHS

We have another way you can help the animals at the shelter and spoil your pet at home at the same time! BarkBox, a dog-lovin’ company, sends high quality pup products to your (large, medium or small) pet every month! Each box is full of 4-6 goodies like bones, toys, treats, hygiene products and now for every order that uses our coupon code NNHSBB1 we will receive a $10 donation from BarkBox! This is a great way to treat your pet while helping ours!
