Alvin is a shy but very special guy. He loves to run and play in the yard, but when he comes inside he knows his boundaries and settles in, but is always aware of what is going on. He has yet to find a dog or cat that he doesn't like or doesn't like him. Alvin tolerates the young kids in his foster home. Please consider adopting Alvin and helping him gain confidence and receive the love and companionship he deserves.

Alvin's adoption fee is $175; he is microchipped, neutered, 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.
