Because YOU care...

be a rescue partner!

Our Rescue Partner Philosophy

CARE STL sees an opportunity and a need to holistically improve the lives of animals and humans in the City of St. Louis. CARE STL is dedicated to working together with local rescues and organizations to help build a stronger, unified, and animal-friendly community. CARE STL relies on like-minded shelters and rescue organizations to remain No-Kill. We welcome any rescue group to pull as many animals as often as possible from our shelter! When you do so, CARE STL will do their part to help promote your adoption and foster programs so you're able to pull more from us.

What You Need to Partner:

To ensure the safety of our animals, we ask that our partners meet the following criteria:

  • Be a 501c3 non-profit organization

  • For those with a brick-and-mortar shelter facility: you must have a valid, current Department of Agriculture license

  • Possess the same No-Kill rescue and shelter practice as CARE STL

  • Promote the principles of humane welfare

  • Only adopt out spayed/neutered animals
