The City of Warrensburg has hired Kerri Lewis as the new Old Drum and Friends Animal Shelter manager. She will take on her duties as manager July 1.

WARRENSBURG — The Old Drum & Friends Animal Shelter has set up a new way to donate needed items: a wish list on Amazon.

The animal shelter cared for more than 510 animals this past year and relies heavily on donations from community members to provide quality care for each animal entering the shelter.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, it costs between $700 and $875 a year to care for each animal that enters a shelter.

The mission of the animal shelter is to provide a safe, healthy and loving environment for animals, match the perfect forever home for animal and adopter and offer exceptional community involvement opportunities.

The wish list can be found at

The animal shelter continues to accept monetary donations.

The animal shelter is open from 1 to 6 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday and from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Staff Writer Sara Lawson can be reached by emailing or by calling (660) 747-8123.​
