Is anyone missing their baby? Super sweet guy!
Have you seen me? My name is Buddy and I've been missing for a year now and my mom is still desperately looking for me, but she could use some help. I was last seen 3-6-21 at my home on highway cc in DeSoto mo. I'm young and full of energy but very friendly and i love playing with the neighborhood kids. But I've never been away from my mom this long and I'm ready to go back home to her. So if you know me or even if you have seen me, will you please call my mom/Erin and tell her where I'm at. Her number is 636-399-2866. Thanks again for helping me get back to my family.

This is King Kong. He's been missing since the beginning of May when I feel ill with covid. At the time he was at the end of being treated for ringworm and a double eye infection. When he came home with these ailments he stayed inside and asleep for about 5 days straight which was alarming but then started treatments and pretty much the second day I had covered was what I think the first day he felt better and was like "I'm going to go do some cat things while you sleep..." And at the end of covid for me after about 5 days that's when I realized he was gone. He still had about two doses left of his medicines so unfortunately I think it's very possible that the infections came back with a vengeance and he found himself in a fight with another cat that he couldn't win because he couldn't see. At the time he was the alpha male of our neighborhood and fighting was a normality in his life. Rarely very rarely did he ever find an animal he couldn't beat... including neighborhood dogs and even a coyote. He Is unaltered, but microchipped. Had he not gone missing he would have been up to date on his shots, but the date when they were due has came and gone, with no sign of him. 😭 He's a very large cat very much like a big Tom Cat and he's just all muscle. Pretty vocal and prefers kids over adults. As an adult tries to pet him the wrong way or pick him up when he doesn't want to be he'll scratch or attempt to. If a child does the same, he goes limp like a rag doll and doesn't seem to mind to be toted around by my 9 year old whom by the way was Inseparable from King kong. Especially during the pandemic they became very close friends. He is King Kong's human and King Kong bows to him as the leader of the pack. Like I said I'm very aware that King Kong has unfortunately most likely passed over that rainbow bridge I'm also aware that there are certain no-kill shelters that's if terminally ill animal happens to show up at their door they will put them down and since they're considered no kill they will not contact the owner even if they happen to find it through the microchip.
All of that being said if anyone knows where he's at or knows what happened please I beg of you to tell me and let me know. Every day I scan the same Facebook groups and the same Craigslist categories praying somebody has found him, but to know avail, which definitely takes a toll on your psyche...not to mention it's heartbreaking.
He's approximately 4 to 5 years old. Missing from Sunset Pointe MHP, by the Hematite Firehouse in Festus. Has not been home nor sited or even seen by any of my neighbors since the first week of May. 😭😭
Any information would be so appreciated. Ty?!!!!! you have no idea how much appreciate you!
Ty! Ty! Ty!

Noelle, Chevy, Waylon and Jane all playing outside today. I’m pretty sure I was the only one to get soaked. 💦☀️😂


Mother and 6 kittens. Pregnant mom was found at Walmart. The kittens are now 3 weeks old.
The finder is keeping until a rescue can be found.


Available for ADOPTION or RESCUE
This is WAYLON. He’s been at the kennel since Jan 5, 2022. It’s his time to find someone….
He was adopted but had to come back because he is picky when it comes to men.
He had a bad experience early on in his life with a man being very mean to him.
He then went to live with a lady who took him and his fur friend W***y (so the man would not shoot them)…and her kids, but she worked long hours and didn’t have time for two dogs.
So he and his brother ended up at the kennel. (His brother got adopted)
When Waylon was adopted by the young couple he was doing fine except when the dad of their family came into the picture…. Waylon did not like him. I can only guess that he reminded Waylon of the mean man. (No fault by either of them)
However he did fine with the rest of the family and loved the neighbor dog too!
Waylon’s person/people are out’s just a matter of time.

He is approx 1.5-2 yrs old and
60 pounds.
Loves squeaky toys and all treats.

Remember KYLEA -
My day was made today from a visit from this girl! KYLEA came by and brought the other kennel pups some Greenie treats!
I’ve wondered how she’d adjusted to her new home!…and wow, she is doing great!
He said “ she is my girl and goes everywhere with me”. 🥰 Some of her favorite places to go are hiking, Lowes, the butcher shop, ..literally everywhere. 😁 She has another fur baby best friend she gets to hang out with at get-togethers. And she loves kids!
So happy for her and to see her thriving - living her best life now.
(She looks a little nervous in the pic but trust me she was a very happy girl)

Available for adoption or RESCUE!!
DeSoto Kennel is FULL!…. It seems we stay this way now. More and more dogs are being dumped in Desoto and I only have 6 kennels with outside runs. And 3 for emergency overflow.
I am currently having to keep dogs in overflow.
We are a no kill kennel and in order to stay that way we have to adopt out and move dogs…..And keep up with more and more dogs being dumped!!!
Some of these dogs pictured have been here since August 2021.

Please share this post to help.

Also if you are looking to adopt please consider setting up an appt to meet one of these babies.
There is a short bio under each pic. You can send me a dm to ask additional questions or set up a meet and greet.

Do you know us? Found running down Main St near Perry St.
the kennel is FULL with dogs in overflow.


we found out Mr. Chase is heart worm positive. 😞
he’s had two treatments this week .. he took them like a champ but did have a pretty rough day yesterday. I’m hoping he has the worst part behind him.
I’ve decided to foster him during his recovery due to needing to be in a more calm environment than the kennel and his daily meds - (4different meds) it’s crucial to his recovery that he gets them each day and on time.
He will be available for adoption after his next test - as long as he comes back negative.
In the meantime he’ll be getting more one on one training at my house which should help him in being adopted.
Side note: He rides in the Jeep going back and forth with me so good!! It’s really cute. I’ll post a video soon!!

If interested in adopting- the right person could foster to adopt but the conditions would have to be perfect.

**Please put your pets on heart-worm prevention. The process to get rid of them is painful for your pet and expensive for you.**

I loved seeing everyone’s pups enjoying their snow day/s on Facebook! I made sure my kennel babies didn’t miss out. Everyone got to enjoy a little time out to play, bury their whole face in the snow, catch snowflakes with their tongue, and of course run snow zoomies!! , except Noelle (last pic) she was not too interested….It’s the warm blankets for her. 🤍😁 she did run for a bit.. but not long. Haha.
Happy Snow Day! 🐾❄️🤍
