Penny is not sure about people. She is living in a foster home and loves to be around other cats and dogs, but is afraid of people. Penny needs someone who will be a special Penny-whisperer, who will be patient and help Penny learn to trust people. Are you that special person?

Penny's adoption fee is $40. She is microchipped and has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV. If you would like to learn more about Penny and talk with her foster mom, please call Helping Strays at (618) 939-7389. Thank you!

About Helping Strays of Monroe County

About Our Shelter...

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. We are a no-kill shelter. All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.

Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations.

Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website "adoption list" and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.
