In early 2020 MEHS acquired both the Highland Animal Shelter and Riverbend Pet Food Pantry to continue helping more animals & their owners. As a no-kill shelter we are only able to help animals we have space for. To increase animal intakes and adoptions, serve the community as a resource for humane animal education, and support the stray animal population in the St. Louis Metro East, we will be fully renovating our Highland facility, reopening to the public as a second MEHS location in April 2021.

MEHS is committed to supporting animal owners in the Metro East, regardless of income barriers, to provide quality veterinary care for their animals. To this end, our capital fundraising campaign will allow us to expand the medical suite in our Edwardsville facility, enabling us to provide more low-cost and low-income veterinary services for the community and animals we serve.
While we are so proud of the work that we've done, we know there is still so much work to do. This is an exciting time for MEHS and our board, staff, and volunteers are proud to launch this campaign to help further our reach and save more furry friends. We hope you will join us in being part of animal welfare in the Metro East!
