If you have found a stray pet, please take it to any local veterinarian to have it scanned for a microchip. Whether or not you can keep it until the owners are found, please post where you found it with a picture and if you take it to a shelter where you took it on https://www.facebook.com/missourilostfoundpaws/
Unfortunately the Missouri Dept. of Ag. who licenses rescues, shelters and animal controls has informed us we cannot take in strays. Strays should go to County Animal Control or a non-profit shelter that is open to the public daily. If you are in St. Louis County the best place to take a stray is the Animal Protective Association on Hanley Rd. St. Louis City Animal Control is now run by Stray Rescue so it is okay to take animals there. In Jefferson County you can take to any of the animal controls except Crystal City. The animal controls in Jefferson County have volunteer networkers that get the animals out alive. Also in Jefferson County is Open Door Animal Sanctuary. In St. Charles County, please take the pet to St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center on Mid Rivers Mall. They do a tremendous job.
