The Humane Society of Missouri recently held the grand opening of its newest facility, the Best Buddy Adoption Center and Animal Medical Center of Mid-America in Maryland Heights. The centers combine animal rescue, sheltering and humane education with veterinary services, all in a two-level, 44,000-square-foot building.

Its unique architecture and colorful, airy design create a welcoming atmosphere. Adopters can see dogs and cats in the Pet Penthouses, Cozy Canine Wing, Companion Animal Lane, Pawprint Parkway, and Cat and Kitten Condos, then safely and comfortably interact with them in Get Acquainted Rooms.

The Animal Medical Center of Mid-America offers the latest in preventive, diagnostic, and surgical treatment and care for private veterinary clients. Proceeds from the medical center benefit animals rescued and cared for at the adoption center as well as HSM shelter locations in St. Louis City and Chesterfield Valley.
