A Dog Adoption Story: How the Shelter Stays Afloat

The Central Missouri Humane Society is Columbia's own no kill animal shelter. They are a non-profit organization meaning they receive no national funding. This means they rely mostly on donations and fundraisers.

This year the shelter decided to switch up their fundraiser event. On April 9, 2016 they held their first ever Duck Derby. The event was made possible through the help of a lot of hardworking staff and volunteers. I know I enjoyed being there and I am sure plenty of others felt the same. It was a great place to spend the day with both your human and dog friends. I have hopes they will host the 2nd one next year.

Watch the video to see what really went on during the event.
