Where the Pets Go
Lost and stray dogs and cats picked up in unincorporated St. Charles County and most municipalities are kenneled at the County Pet Adoption Center. However, exceptions include animals picked up or surrendered to the cities of St. Charles (636-949-3395) and St. Peters (636-278-2255). These municipalities operate their own animal control programs.
If You Lost Your Pet
If you have lost a pet, please call us at 636-949-7387 and visit the Pet Adoption Center during business hours.
Although we do take phone calls, it is very important that you also visit the shelter in person! Our facility holds over 150 animals, and it is often very difficult to be sure whether or not an animal matches a caller's description.
