CARE STL needs your help! CARE STL has no single empty kennel to house lost or injured dogs being brought in off the streets. They currently have 172 dogs in the shelter, far beyond the building’s capacity. They must find foster or adoptive homes for 56 dogs every week to enable them to continue helping more animals! Their goal is to have 224 dogs in a home by October 31.
CARE STL invite the community to come and see the city shelter and see how these dogs live in crates 23 hours a day. They are counting on the community’s support to help save more animals from the streets of St. Louis.
The walk-through of the shelter is scheduled from 2 PM to 4 PM on October 8, Sunday, at 2801 Clark Avenue, 63103.
Dr. Abbie Knudsen Atteberry, Executive Director for CARE STL, stated, “We are deeply committed to providing the best possible care for all animals in the shelter. However, the current capacity crisis is overwhelming, and we urgently need the support of our community to help us continue our lifesaving efforts.”
There are so many great ways you can help. Here are just a few: 1) Adopt. Adoption Coordinators will work with you to help you find the dog that’s the right fit for your lifestyle and family. https://www.icarestl.org/adopt-a-dog 2) Foster. They need fosters for dogs so they can make space in the shelter for incoming pets. The more fosters they have, the more pets they can save.
