Contact Us

St. Louis Pet Rescue is a foster home based rescue.  We do not have a facility or any paid staff.  Most of us work full time jobs.  Please contact us via the email addresses listed further below.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.


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

The Missouri Dept. of Ag. who licenses rescues, shelters and animal controls recommended that we do not take in strays.  Foster home based rescues cannot perform a legal stray hold.  A lost pet has its best chance of finding its owner if it is taken to a shelter open to the public near where it was found.

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 non profit trying to be no kill so it is okay to take animals there.

Jefferson County – you can take to any of the animal controls except Crystal City.  The animal controls for the county as well as the small municipal pounds, except Crystal City, have volunteer net workers that get the animals out alive.  Also in Jefferson County is Open Door Animal Sanctuary.

St. Charles City – please take the pet to St. Charles City Animal Control.  They have a great group of networkers that get the animals out alive.

St. Charles County – please take the pet to St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center on Mid Rivers Mall.  They do a tremendous job.
