We believe in second chances. Our primary focus is the health and safety of the animals in our care- the abused, neglected, and homeless companion animals in St. Louis city- and pairing those animals with humans to better each other. We’re dedicated to implementing a long-term, holistic solution to the pet cruelty and overpopulation epidemic in our city through educating the public on responsible pet guardianship, lifesaving partnerships, and community outreach programs.
CARE STL uses a match-making style of adoption which focuses on pairing animals with humans to better each other based on the individual's needs and lifestyle.
We do our best to ensure the right pet for the person through an open, conversation-based approach to assess what the applicant is wanting in a companion animal.
