Who We Are

Center for Animal Rescue and Enrichment of St. Louis or CARE STL is a 501c3 nonprofit organization serving as the official No-Kill animal shelter partner for the City of St. Louis Animal Care and Control. We provide animal regulation services and work with the City of St. Louis in enforcing Title 10 of the City of St. Louis Ordinance relevant to animal care and control. CARE STL also enforces and embraces the No-Kill equation and follows the guiding principles of no-kill shelters.

“Our mission focuses on the health and safety of the animals in our care, and we want to do it in a way that helps our two-legged community friends as well. We are focused on saving the animals of the City of St. Louis,” says Weng Horak, Founder, and CEO of CARE STL, “We’re here to help create a more caring community for the pets and residents of the City of St. Louis by implementing lifesaving partnerships with other like-minded rescue organizations, and community outreach programs."

CARE STL works with a network of community partners, business sponsors, adopters, donors, and volunteers to advocate for animal welfare. To become involved with assisting CARE STL through a partnership or with the care of the shelter animals, call (314) 696-2444 or (314) 818-2000.


CARE STL is focused exclusively on caring for our city’s animals from inhumane treatment and to protect the public from stray, and possibly dangerous animals.
