Never going back to this organization. Was a willing and cheery donor until I saw how they treat people at intake. I donated (I do NOT anymore) money to this organization to help animals in the area. My donor dollars are from outside of Joplin, and I never considered that a problem. Until I saw their intake, and realized that, while they're perfectly willing to take out of town donations, they don't take out-of-town animals. So I'm going to find somewhere else to send my money until they turn down out-of-town money as quickly as out-of-town animals.

The Joplin Humane Society has faced an astounding challenge in handling the animals that survived but were lost after the horrific tornado that devastated over a quarter of Joplin. With assistance from several other state and national animal humane & rescue groups, they have taken in over 800 animals and reunited more than 250. The staff and volunteers have done a stellar job under adverse circumstances including the death of the Executive Director Karen Aquino’s step-daughter, Rachel Markham, who perished in the disaster.
