ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO – Like you, the cats and kittens at St. Charles County’s Pet Adoption Center are roaring for the start of the football season. Whether it is high school, college or professional, our furry fans are eager to help cheer on your favorite team.

To help these first-rate felines find their purr-fect family, we are offering half-off the adoption fee until October 1 for those cats in our starting line-up. We have marked the temporary Pet Adoption Center homes with footballs to introduce you to our MVPs. For this Tail-Gate Special, the adoption fee for our football-marked All-Stars is just $30. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter service, initial vaccinations, microchipping and a thorough examination.

Our Tail-Gate Special celebration also revives the age-old tradition of selecting a Homecoming King and Queen. Please visit before 3 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 23 or stop by the Pet Adoption Center during operating hours to vote for your favorite and to view cats, dogs and other animals now available for adoption.

Located at 4850 Mid Rivers Mall Drive (across from St. Charles Community College), the Pet Adoption Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with extended hours until 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays). The facility is also open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information, please visit

The division protects and enhances the quality of life for people and animals in our region by sheltering and adopting animals, educating pet owners, providing animal control services, and investigating incidents involving animal cruelty and neglect.
