The Trooper Fund

Everybody - meet Benner! 

Benner is a 4 month old, Retriever, Labrador/mix girl who found herself in quite a predicament before arriving at the Sedalia Animal Shelter. She needed an amputation of her left, front leg. Thanks to our wonderful community who donated through the Trooper Fund and her personal champions, Officer Benner (pictured left) and Officer Parham (pictured right), Benner received her surgery and is now ready to live her very best life with a loving family.

Applications for Benner will be accepted until March 26, 2020.

What is The Trooper Fund?

The Sedalia Animal Shelter started The Trooper Fund in March of 2017 when a border collie mix puppy arrived at the shelter with a broken leg. Unfortunately, the brave little pup needed amputation surgery. The shelter staff named him "Trooper" and began The Trooper Fund. The monies raised through the Trooper Fund allowed the Sedalia Animal Shelter Staff to see Trooper through his surgery and ultimately place him in the home... of a Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper!

Through the generosity and support of animal lovers near and far, the Trooper Fund continues to help pets like Trooper overcome traumatic injuries and ultimately find their forever home. To date, The Trooper Fund has helped two other dogs and one cat since Trooper helped start the program!   


How Can I Help?

Visit, Snuggle, Apply and Adopt!

The primary goal of the Sedalia Animal Shelter is to care for homeless pets in our community through adoptions, cruelty investigations, community awareness and caring for companion animals until loving homes can be found. For pets who receive care through The Trooper Fund, interested adoptive parties are required to complete an adoption application and interview with the Shelter Staff.
Share Trooper Fund Information and Donate!

The Sedalia Animal Shelter hopes to provide care through The Trooper Fund to other deserving animals and in order to do so, your help is greatly appreciated. The Sedalia  community has been phenomenal about sharing The Trooper Fund information and we hope to keep the fund going through person to person/heart to heart awareness.
