COVID-19 Latest News - Updated June 1, 2020
Effective June 1, 2020, the St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center has reopened to the public, but is limiting visitation with animals during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those interested in adoptions or pet fostering should complete any applications and make an appointment prior to visiting the facility. Please review our available pet photos and photos of recently found pets on our website and make an appointment to visit our facility by calling 636-949-7387.
Please be aware that building restrictions are in place. Upon entrance to any County building, employees and the public are encouraged to wear cloth facial protection, and everyone is required to have a health screening, including temperature check, before entering. Those with a fever or who have other COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted to enter the building. Browsing of animals inside the Pet Adoption Center is not permitted at this time.
Choosing Your Pet
Choosing your pet through the Pet Adoption Center can offer an outstanding value. Our adoption fee includes a health examination, initial vaccinations, spay or neuter service, temperament education, a County License tag, and microchipping - services that are not always included when adopting elsewhere. You must complete an Adoption Application (PDF) to adopt any animal from the Pet Adoption Center.
Please Be Aware - All adoption applications must be completed and approved at least 30 minutes prior to the posted closing time (at least 60 minutes prior on Wednesdays) to allow for processing of the animal.
For assistance, please email us or call 636-949-7387.
