Despite the massive influx of animals, CARE STL's Live Release Rate for the month of August 2022 is 97%.

      We’re experiencing more admissions than ever before.

The first half of 2022 has been an interesting one! We have taken in more animals than ever before and are committed to caring for each one of them until we can find them forever homes. In the last eight months, we have taken in 883 cats & kittens, 1242 puppies and adult dogs, and 131 other small animals.


Animal shelters and rescues around the country are experiencing unprecedented admission numbers, which means that many of our rescue partners are full. Unfortunately, this means that they cannot rescue animals from our shelter so that we can free up space for the never-ending stream of intakes. 


We are all full. We are all stretched. Yet, the animals keep coming to us for help and hope for a better life. So many of them come to us with complex, serious medical issues – we treat them with the same level of love, care, and commitment to emotionally, mentally, and physically healing.
