Ozarks Kat and K9 Shelter

A non-profit 501(c)3 NO-KILL Animal Shelter

Everyone Has the Option to Choose Adoption!

Ozarks Kat and K9 Shelter in Sunrise Beach, Missouri is a no-kill shelter that takes in various stray, lost, abandoned, or surrendered animals. Our thrift store is the main monetary base for the animals we admit and for our ongoing spay and neuter financial assistance program, which greatly benefits our area’s domestic animal population.

Mission Statement

It is our mission to rescue, find homes for, and improve the lives of homeless dogs and cats while also providing support to our community through our low cost spay/neuter clinic, financial assistance, and pet food pantry.

Reason for choosing us

Ozarks Kat and K9 is a no-kill animal shelter and so much more. In addition, we are the only shelter on the western side of Lake of the Ozarks. When resources permit we also assist local public safety officers.

About Us

Our organization was founded in 1989.  Started under the name Society for the Treatment of Abandoned and Fractured Friends (S.T.A.F.F.) we made the change to Ozarks Kat and K9 to better reflect what we do and easily identify ourselves as a dog and cat shelter.


Although our volunteers and employees are few, they are a mighty and passionate team of individuals.
