Stray Paws Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, foster-based rescue. Our organization believes it is our moral responsibility to protect and improve the lives of rescue dogs. Our mission is to save lives, keep our community informed on humane education, training and loving treatment of our companions, and finding the best fit for both the animals in our care and potential forever families!
We pull animals from high kill shelters on their final minutes and off the streets in St. Louis. We feed strays and sets humane traps for the lost and dumped pets and rescue dogs from unsafe home environments to bring them to safety.
If you are interested in adopting a dog or cat from Stray Paws Rescue we require a completed adoption application, which can be filled out on our website at www.straypawsrescue.com
A volunteer will review your application to ensure the dog or cat you have chosen is a good fit for your family. We receive multiple applications for the same dog or cat and it is our intent to ensure the best placement for both you and the dog or cat. If we feel the dog or cat you are interested in will not be the right fit, we are always happy to work with you to find the perfect addition to your family.
After reviewing your application we will speak to your veterinarian to confirm your current and previous pets are up to date on vaccinations and have been on regular heartworm preventative. We will also contact your references.
Approved applicants will receive a phone call from our coordinator/volunteer to set up a meet & greet. We will then bring the dog or cat to your home to ensure this is a good fit for ALL family members (including other pets and children if you have them)
All adoption fees are payable the day the contract is finalized.

Puppies 6 months and younger - $300.00
Young adults 7 months-6 years - $250.00
Adults-Seniors: 7 years+ - $175.00
