Saint Louis County and surrounding cities in Missouri

About Our Rescue Group:

IMPACT is a 501(3)c non-profit group founded in 1994 with the purpose in mind to save unwanted animals from a life on the street, in a shelter or being euthanized and place them instead in a loving "forever" home that will care for them all of their lives. All IMPACT fosters are unpaid volunteers that foster animals in their own homes and treat them as one of their personal pets while we socialize and train them to become wonderful companions for the person who ultimately adopts them. We do this because every life is valuable to us and someone has to step up to the plate for these little beings that are at the mercy of what humans will or won't do for them.

All donations are tax-deductible and may be mailed to PO Box 190184, St. Louis, MO 63119

Come Meet our Pets:

We hold an adoption event the 3rd weekend of every month at the Petsmart at 62 Brentwood Promenade Center, Brentwood, MO 63144. You be ale to meet the pet at that time. We also advertise in a local paper and on Petfinder. We will however, due to the Christmas holiday, hold our adoption event the weekend of Dec. 7th instead of the 3rd weekend of Dec.

Our Adoption Process:

$150 for all puppies, pure-breds $200. Potential adopters are interviewed by at least 2 IMPACT volunteers and we must agree that this is the best placement for the specific animal. Dogs must be inside pets only and yards must be fenced. We need to know what the plan is for the animal when the owners are not at home. All adults in the home must be on board about getting the pet. New owner must agree to spay or neuter if the dog is not old enough at adoption Adoption fee includes all shots to-date and the spay and neuter fee if done at one of our vets. They don't have to use our vets, but they would have to pay their vet. If the pet doesn't work out they must return the pet to us. They have to fill out a lengthy application and sign adoption forms.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
