House Rabbit Society of Missouri (Chesterfield, Missouri 63006)  is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, non-profit organization with a dual purpose of rescue and education.

Utilizing foster homes as rescue “shelters,” volunteers provide appropriate care and socialization opportunities to rabbits so that they may be adopted into loving, permanent, indoor homes. The rescue’s educators assist the public, humane societies, and local shelters through publications on rabbit care, phone and e-mail consultations, and classes upon request. They do not euthanize an animal unless they are suffering from an incurable disease or wound.

The House Rabbit Society of Missouri, St. Louis chapter, directs their rescue efforts towards saving the lives of bunnies in threatening situations, those scheduled for euthanasia at local shelters, or rescue referrals from area shelters and veterinarians. Their commitment to saving the lives of bunnies is paramount. Because foster spots are reserved for rabbits on “death row” at area shelters and animal control facilities, the rescue does not accept rabbits from individuals. However, those rabbits needing new homes can be listed on the House Rabbit Society of Missouri web site if they are spayed or neutered and healthy.

Missouri Pit Bull Rescue (Kansas City, Missouri) is a non-profit, all-volunteer small network of foster homes and local boarding.

Missouri Pit Bull Rescue is licensed with the state of Missouri and eligible to rescue dogs from shelters that don’t adopt out Pit Bulls to the public. The rescue only takes a few dogs at a time as space is very limited. Its volunteers believe that the quality of the dogs and the quality of their placements are more important than the quantity. The rescue keeps the dogs as long as it takes to find their perfect home.

Local shelters usually have a heartbreaking number of Pit Bulls and Pit mixes hoping for a chance. Sadly, most of them will not make it out of the shelter alive unless bailed out by MPR. The rescue makes great efforts to select the best candidates possible. It chooses dogs that it believes are good representatives of the breed, and should make great companions. It is very unfortunate that MPR can only help a few dogs at a time, but it simply doesn’t have enough room and resources to save a large number of dogs. While it may not seem to make a big difference in the large picture, it certainly makes a huge difference for the lucky dogs MPR bails out of deathrow.
