Southeast Missouri Animal Welfare began as a column on Examiner.com in 2007, written by Gila Todd. During the summer of 2016, Examiner.com officially changed its format from an online news source to a music venue news source. During that transition all previously published materials were terminated.

In an effort to preserve some of the more popular articles published on the Examiner column, and to continue to bring the SEMO area an animal welfare news source and resource base, this website was created.

If you have animal related news that you feel is newsworthy, please use the contact page to leave your tip.
