Saint Louis County Animal Care and Control is NOT a no -kill shelter, as we must accept every animal that comes through our doors, be it owner turn-in, stray, etc. We do try to place as many adoptable animals as we can into loving, forever homes. Please visit our shelter, as we have many wonderful animals waiting for homes!

Our Adoption Process:
The adoption fee for both cats and dogs is $40.00. Most of our dogs are not already spayed/neutered, therefore, they require a pre-pay spay/neuter from a local veterinarian. The dogs are delivered to the vet on the day of surgery, and then are picked up by their new owners. Dogs under 25 lbs are spayed by our staff veterinarian.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
