Take Home a Lifetime of Love and Happiness
Considering adoption? Good choice! Careful placement of pets is one of our primary missions. Check out the animals currently available for adoption!
We update our listings hourly throughout the day. If you'd like to make sure a certain dog or cat is still here, you may call us with the animal's name and ID number. However, we do not confirm adoptions or "hold" pets by phone.
The Adoption Process
When you come into our shelter, you’ll find 100 to 150 dogs and cats waiting to find a new home. Our adoption counselors will help find the right pet for you. We comply with all county and municipal regulations regarding pet ownership. We will not knowingly place a pet in violation of any ordinance restricting breeds or number of animals in a household. For more information, please contact the APA’s adoption desk at 314.645.4610 ext. 113.
We provide the following for each adopted pet:
- Spay/neuter surgery
- Microchip identification
- Preliminary vaccinations and worming
- Heartworm test and preventative for dogs
- Feline leukemia test for cats
- Advantage Multi® flea and heartworm preventative
- Two-week wellness coverage
- Collar and leash
We have discounted rates for senior citizens (60 and over) who adopt and special discounts when you adopt an older pet.
Lonely Hearts Club
Some of our pets have been waiting longer than others to find their forever homes. Could you be a match for a lonely heart?
These clinics have generously donated a free office visit and wellness check for pets adopted from the APA.
These owners found a friend for life when they adopted a pet. And now they want to share their experiences with you!
