Our city government is considering options for the future of the (now empty) STL workhouse. We proposed to move into the space, create a fantastic shelter for our animals, and develop a welcoming atmosphere for our community.
If we are granted the use of the facility, this will solve so many issues we are currently experiencing. For example, as of today, Aug 20, 2023, we have 190 dogs at the shelter and 61 cats. Our shelter capacity is only 90 dogs, and no space for cats. This is unacceptable for a small shelter space of only 8,500 square feet. We are drowning.
Our plan includes space to house homeless people and their pets, a community center, and unique outdoor spaces for the dogs to spend time with volunteers. We will also offer training sessions for adopters and the community and more programs we have in the pipeline if we find the space and resources. This would change so many lives.
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and choose "animal shelter" as the best option for this space.
