Found a Stray?

Please Note: The Central Missouri Humane Society only takes in stray animals that are found in Boone County.

Our intake office is able to accept stray animals Monday through Saturday from Noon to 6 PM. 

  • Please enter through the back of the building at the door marked “animal drop off”.
  • Please have your drivers license on hand (this is required under the Missouri Dept. of Agriculture)
  • There will be a short form to fill out regarding where/how you found the animal and that you are officially surrendering it to CMHS.
  • While we do not charge a fee for this service, all donations are greatly appreciated.

Animal Control will pick up dogs running loose in Columbia city limits. To report a dog running loose please call 573 449 1888.
