MO Humane Society Hopes Shops Increase Adoptions

By AP / KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Missouri's largest animal shelter says it will showcase homeless pets in storefronts at two St. Louis-area shopping
centers.

The Humane Society is taking over management and financial responsibility for two pet-adoption stores known as Adopt-A-Stray previously run by a group that goes by the same name.

Adopt-A-Stray adopted out 7,000 homeless animals over five years. But the group says the Humane Society can run things more efficiently and adopt out more animals.

The adoption "stores" will be known as Adopt & Shop and are located in St. Peters, Chesterfield and several other of St. Louis' western suburbs.
