Review for Help of Raymore, Inc., Belton, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We had lost our two cats within a year of each other, one lived to be very old but the other was younger and we were not expecting that to happen. We waited a couple of years and then we decided we had to have another one, actually our kids begged us to get another one. It was time to go to the dreaded shelters. I love shelters for the thought that they help animals but HATE going into them, all those fury babies with no homes, living in cages, and then sent off to die if no one takes them. When I walked into HELP Humane, it was just a whole new experience. The cats are free roaming, some are in cages as they adjust but most are roaming around in different rooms. It is like a big home for cats/kittens (and they also have dogs too, just not as much space for those babies so not as many) and not a depressing place to go. The people who take care of those babies have so much love for them. We did find our fury baby there a couple of years ago. When I went to pick her up, she was being snuggled by her volunteer and her volunteer was crying as she was happy she had a home but sad to see her leave. That is the love they have for those sweet babies. I knew I would be back, no question. We have been back, over and over, to visit and have become shelter buddies. My kids even save money, on their own, to give to them. They love going there and we are always checking on who got a new home, and the kids know most of their names. They always ask, were any of them adopted and who was it. They get big smiles when they get a home. We walked in to the shelter to get a cat/kitten, we walked out with so much more. Please get your baby from this shelter, volunteer or donate. It will change your lives more than it will change theirs.
