(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Animal Control and Rescue got some help from Maryville Tuesday.


The New Nodaway Humane Society has a few empty kennels and cages while St. Joseph’s Animal Control and Rescue is close to capacity.

In a NNHS’s Facebook post, the group said, “If you’ve been to the shelter recently you’ve noticed our historically low animal numbers. Last week, we had a grand total of 16 animals on the adoption floor. We reached out to Friends of the Animal Shelter of St. Joseph and St. Joseph Animal Shelter and learned they were at capacity and having to turn away animals.”

Jennifer Loomis works with the St. Joseph Shelter. She said when another shelter helps out, it creates more than just space.

“We’ve got a lot of animals up for adoption,” Loomis said. “It’s really nice to be able to work with other communities and get these animals seen by a new group of people and adopted.”

New Nodaway took six dogs and four cats north to its facility in Maryville.
