Hannibal, Mo. — Northeast Missouri Humane Society is set to receive a $7,500 grant from the national nonprofit Petco Love in support of its lifesaving work for animals in northeast Missouri.

Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by making communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $350 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. Petco Love helps find homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations across North America, with 6.7 million pets adopted and counting.

In a press release, Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love, said “Our investment in NEMOHS is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized. Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently launched Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet image technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”

“As an open-door organization, as well as being a non-profit, we are always very grateful for grants from organizations like Petco Love. We would not be able to survive without opportunities like this,” said Elise Blue, executive director.

NEMOHS is a nonprofit organization founded in 1966 on compassion as a nonprofit 501(c)3. NEMO Humane Society currently cares for the lost, stray, injured, neglected and unwanted animals of five counties — Marion, Ralls, Monroe, Shelby and Lewis.

The Northeast Missouri Humane Society’s mission is to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and overpopulation of domestic animals, provide a network service to the lost or homeless, and educate the public on problems that matter. Each year, it cares for nearly 2,000 homeless pets from the northeast Missouri area.

NEMOHS continues to have a contract with the City of Hannibal to provide a home for strays picked up by the city’s animal control.
