Benefits of Shelter Pets

Step into your local shelter and you’ll see what makes shelter pets so inspiring.

Cute, cuddly, fun & friendly — they make some of the world’s best friends and come with benefits you can’t overlook. Featuring a wide variety of breeds, ages and colors to choose from, you’re sure to find your perfect match at a shelter. Plus, with vaccinations, chipping & spaying or neutering already taken care of, your new pal is ready to come home right away.

When you consider the benefits, it’s no wonder we ask people to #ConsiderAShelterPet when searching for a new family member. This year, we’re teaming up with the St. Louis Petlovers Coalition and Urban Chestnut Brewing Company to spread our love of shelter pets and help local families reclaim their own.
