The Humane Society of Missouri Women’s Leadership Council provides opportunities for professional women to connect with each other and direct their time, expertise and support toward making a lasting difference in the lives of abused, neglected or abandoned animals in St. Louis and Missouri. 

 In 2015, membership supported  purchasing large-animal kennels for the Animal Rescue and Rehab Center under construction at HSMO’s Macklind Avenue Headquarters Facility. In a general membership vote, WLC members selected the Animal Cruelty Task Force (ACT) as the 2016 funding project, with a goal to raise $115,000 this year. 

Our ACT Officers travel 300,000 miles to rescue approximately 2,000 animals from confirmed situations of abuse and neglect every year. Animals just like 28 dogs rescued by the ACT from Newton County in late March. Most of these dogs spent months recovering at HSMO from the heinous neglect they suffered. Some may never regrow hair lost to mange and other damaging skin infections.



  • Enjoy opportunities to network with other HSMO Women's Leadership Council members while helping provide a safe and caring haven to abused, neglected and abandoned animals.

  • Receive recognition in Tails, the Humane Society's quarterly magazine.


Thank you, Maxine Clark!

On September 22, HSMO's Women's Leadership Council members and their guests enjoyed an evening of networking, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a special presentation from philanthropist, entrepreneur and community leader Maxine Clark.

Big, sloppy wet kisses to Maxine Clark and WLC co-chairs Casey Kleekamp and Pat Erb for making the evening a huge success!
