Interested in adopting a dog or cat? As you begin your search, don’t forget to stop by the shelter in Whitecliff Park. A surprising 45 – 55 percent of the animals picked up by Animal Control each year are strays, so there are usually animals on hand for you to see.
Animals are held at the shelter for 10 days. Microchips are traced and owners are contacted, any way possible. If unclaimed, they are vaccinated, checked and treated for parasites and viruses, and spayed or neutered, if necessary. They are then placed for adoption. Adopters are expected to reimburse Friends of Animals for these costs. Costs will vary.
Adopters must sign an adoption contract releasing the City of Crestwood from any post-adoption responsibility. Crestwood does not knowingly adopt any animals with aggressive tendencies or health issues.

We have everything from kittens to adult cats, with a variety of colors, short or long hair, that need furever homes. They have been acclimated to kids, other cats and even to dogs, so check out the website and give us a call! 314-729-4868.
All are spayed or neutered, have been checked by a veterinarian and had their vaccinations, as well as being microchipped for identification.
As in most years, we have an abundance of cats. This year is record-setting! In one week the shelter accepted 16 cats/kittens from one residential area where the residents had been feeding them and none of them had been spayed or neutered so the numbers kept growing!! All have been checked by the vet, and the smallest kittens are in the process of being vaccinated. Most have been vaccinated and spayed or neuteredso they are ready for adoption.
