The St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center is limiting visitation with our animals and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those interested in reporting lost/stray animals or recovering missing pets will need to go through a screening process. Please review our database of found pets on this web page and make an appointment to visit our facility by calling 636-949-7387.
Where Do Collected Pets Go?
Lost and stray dogs and cats picked up in unincorporated St. Charles County and most municipalities are kenneled at the Pet Adoption Center. The City of St. Peters (636-278-2255), City of O’Fallon (636-240-3200) and the City of Wentzville (636-327-5105) operate their own animal control units, but they house their recovered animals at the Pet Adoption Center. The City of St. Charles (636-949-3395) operates its own animal control program and houses its animals at their facility.
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.
