Animal Control authorities operate a shelter and adoption programs to protect and find homes for many unwanted animals. If you are interested in adopting an animal or have an animal that you can no longer keep, call 314-615-0650 or come in for information.
Our shelter is open from Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

As of June 1, 2005 the cost for animal adoption is $40.
The animal adoption fee covers some immunizations and the insertion of an identifying microchip so your pet can be returned quickly if it becomes lost. Animals are required to be spayed or neutered by a veterinarian at your expense within 30 days.
Animals are also available for adoption from other Saint Louis metropolitan shelters. Off-site listings are provided as a convenience for our browsing visitors and of course do not imply any endorsement, etc.
