ACT Now! Rescue is an all volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) no kill dog and cat rescue and animal welfare organization serving St. Louis County, Jefferson County and Franklin County in Missouri. We operate through a foster network and work with local shelters, as well as take in stray and abandoned animals. As an organization, we strongly oppose puppy mills and breeding programs and emphasize education and a vigorous spay/neuter program in order to reduce problems of overpopulation.
We started full operations in September 2006. There are many exciting opportunities to join the group and help further the causes of dog and cat welfare in this region. We are currently looking for generous people willing to share their homes and serve as foster parents for the animals we take in as well as volunteers to serve is almost every other area of the operation.
What is rescue? Many people have varying ideas as to "what is rescue". We take in strays, owner turn ins and pull from "high kill" shelters. As long as there is a dog in need we will be there to save it. We are not breed specific, and we are not about highly adoptable healthy dogs. Many of our dogs are not without health issues or behavior issues that need to be resolved. We feel with our heart, not our mind which would tell us unhealthy dogs are expensive. Is cost an option? Who is to say any certain dog is not worth saving. What is a life worth? If you would ask, tammy, laurie, jan What was the worth of their loving companion? PRICELESS! Rescue is expensive. Even with vet discounts, the bills are astronomical.. Our group will never say a dog is not worth saving.The difference it makes to the family that adopts, will always be worth the expense. We will continue to rescue those in need . God bless to our adopters and supporters. The Act Now Rescue Team.
We work soley as a foster rescue organization. Arrangements are made on a case by case basis for meeting families with prospective animals. Every consideration is made to accomodate families to make the adoption process as easy as possible.
