Stray Rescue of St. Louis
Stray Rescue’s mission is to lead the way towards making St. Louis a compassionate city where every companion animal knows health, comfort, and affection, and no stray is euthanized merely because he or she has been abandoned, abused, or neglected. As part of the organization’s mission, Stray Rescue is out on the streets daily taking a progressive, proactive approach to establishing a permanent resolution to the stray companion animal problem through dedicated rescue efforts, sheltering, community outreach programs, education, collaborations, and the encouragement of responsible pet guardianship.
Rescuing over 2,000 dogs and cats every year, Stray Rescue seeks to reduce the overpopulation, suffering, and euthanasia of homeless companion animals and foster responsibility and compassionate attitudes by supporting companion animals to the fullest extent.
In 2011, Stray Rescue was recognized as “Shelter of the Year” by Dog Fancy magazine, and has been featured on several major networks and publications, including National Geographic, Animal Planet, The Today Show, and People. Additionally, they have developed numerous distinctive programs in support of their mission. Please visit StrayRescue.org to learn more.
