Important Note

Emmie is best friends with Rosie. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Emmie and Rosie are sisters who would love a new home together. They are sweet loving girls and get along with other dogs. If you have room in your heart and home for these girls, contact the shelter to make an appointment to meet them since they are in a foster home at this time.

Emmie's adoption fee is $175; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

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.
