   The Humane Society of Missouri's disaster response team in St. Louis is being called into action because of flooding in south central Missouri.  A four-member team has taken a large animal rescue trailer to Waynesville to house up to 100 pets whose owners have nowhere to keep them until the flood waters recede.  

   The St. Louis shelter will also accept 15 dogs from the Waynesville shelter to make room for local pets displaced by flooding.  The dogs will be made available for adoption in St. Louis.

HOLTS SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri animal shelter is working to find room for more than 40 cats that lived at a home.

Holts Summit police and animal rescue volunteers began removing the animals from the home Monday morning and will continue to take more animals to the shelter Tuesday.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports the department began investigating the home after complaints from neighbors last year.

Officer Marc Haycook said the department tried to work with the homeowners to reduce the number of animals in the house but nothing was accomplished.

The local shelter will house the cats until they are ready for adoption.

The homeowners are scheduled to appear in Holts Summit Municipal Court Wednesday.
