About Dogwood Animal Shelter
Volunteers have been the driving force behind Dogwood animal shelter since its beginning. Through auctions and sales, a handful of dedicated people raised enough money to build a small facility and in 1976, the badly needed shelter was established as a 501(c)3. It was filled beyond capacity almost immediately. From the start, Dogwood offered low-cost spays and neuters, and since 1997, when the board of directors declared Dogwood a no-kill facility, it has steadily expanded that program. When the long-awaited new shelter facility, located near Osage Beach was built in 2005, a spay/neuter clinic was included so that the surgeries could be done on site.
Low-Cost Spay & Neuter
Providing low-cost spay and neuter surgeries as a humane approach to reducing our community’s pet overpopulation problem is an important part of Dogwood’s mission. The clinic is located in the medical wing of the shelter facility and is open to the public each week. Appointments are scheduled, based on veterinarian availability. Costs vary according to the animal’s weight and other variables.
