Please Note: The adoption fee for dogs and cats is $100. Fees are non-refundable. Fees help defray the cost of spay/neuter, vet care, food, etc. Our adoption fee includes the spay/neuter, micro-chipping and current vaccinations of the adopted pet, as well as a year of FREE training at the Pine Street shelter!  Post-adoption veterinary care is the financial responsibility of the new guardian.  

Please be advised that completing an application does not guarantee adoption. Our process includes a fully completed application with references and pet history, interview, home visit and agreement of terms. There are some cases where as the applicant could be turned down. Also, there could already be multiple applications on the specific companion animal. YOU WILL WANT TO CHECK THE STATUS OF THE PET YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T ALREADY HAVE AN ADOPTION PENDING.

FOR THOSE WHO RENTBefore we can proceed with your application, we MUST have landlord approval in writing to ensure animals are allowed on the premises. This approval must include any specific breed or size restrictions. To make the adoption process as expedient as possible, please work on getting this to us as soon as possible. Here's a link to our landlord approval form:

Just fill out this form and we'll confirm the information with your landlord, or forward them the link, have them fill it out, hit "submit" and it will be sent directly to us with all the information we need. Thank you!

Terms of Adoption

All pets must be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

If, for any reason or at any time, I am unable to care for my adopted pet, I agree to return my adopted pet to Stray Rescue of St. Louis; I further agree never to abandon my adopted pet or deposit my adopted pet at an animal shelter or research facility; however, before returning my adopted pet to Stray Rescue, I agree to exhaust all options available to me including, but not limited to, obedience training, a behaviorist, crate training or veterinary advice to solve any physical or behavioral problem that may occur with my adopted pet or between me and my adopted pet.

I agree that by accepting my pet for adoption, I am accepting guardianship of the animal. I understand this means that Stray Rescue of St. Louis is not responsible for any damage to person or property that may be caused by my adopted pet after the date of the adoption and I accept full responsibility for my adopted pet from the date of the adoption forward.
