Dogwood Animal Shelter Legacy Brick Project

Become a part of the enduring legacy of Dogwood Animal Shelter and supporting our mission by purchasing a brick!

The first phase of this campaign, the bricks will be placed in the front of the shelter building and around the cat and dog patios.

Since 1976, Dogwood has served the Lake of the Ozarks region by taking in and caring for homeless dogs and cats, operating only by donations from supporters such as you. The Legacy Brick Program will not only raise funds; it will also provide a place to honor donors, memorialize loved ones, and celebrate life's milestones.

Dogwood Animal Shelter Mission Statement:

To provide care and shelter to the homeless pets of our community, to reduce their numbers through spay and neuter, to promote humane treatment of all animals, and to enhance the human-animal bond.

Order your brick today and support Dogwood!

March 26, 2020 - Dogwood Animal Shelter will be holding low-cost, basic dog obedience classes indoors at the shelter starting March 26, 2020. The class is open to all dogs six months of age or older. Because class size is limited, students are asked to register by March 19, 2020. For an application or more information, please call the shelter at 573-348-4411

PROGRESSIVE BINGO every Wednesday at 12:30 PM in Dogwood Animal Shelter’s beautiful Community Room to help raise money for our homeless pets. Come and enjoy Progressive Bingo, home baked goodies, a friendly, pet-loving crowd and Pet of the Week during intermission! Doors open at 11:30 AM. Come join our fun Bingo gang!

You can help our community in a BIG WAY simply by bringing a dog or cat for spay or neuter at Dogwood's low cost clinic.

Leaving just one animal unaltered can result in hundreds of homeless babies! The solution is simple and inexpensive.

WE ARE OFFERING LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER DAYS EACH WEEK ON WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS. Call 573-348-4411 for appointment or more information.
