Stray Rescue Of St. Louis Closes On Property

Building the Future Home of Stray Rescue of St. Louis Sanctuary, Adoption & Humane Education Center

Stray Rescue of St. Louis has been a staple in the metro St. Louis region for a quarter of a century. Throughout that time, the organization has rescued and saved the lives of thousands upon thousands of at-risk dogs and cats who received nutritious food, shelter, medical care, love, compassion, and their forever homes they all deserved. During this time, Stray Rescue has outgrown their current 32,000 square foot shelter at 2320 Pine Street.

With more animals being saved on a daily basis than ever before, a growing staff and foster network, and with planned growth and renovation on the city block surrounding the shelter area in downtown St. Louis, they are severely limited in space with no room to grow. “We are so excited about this next chapter of Stray Rescue and are proud to have the opportunity to do even more for the animals who need us and for the people who love them. We hope you will join us in our effort as we build the future of Stray Rescue together!” says Stray Rescue CEO, Cassady Caldwell.

After assessing numerous locations over the past year, always with the needs of the animals first and foremost, the new facility will be located at 4084 Bingham Ave in St. Louis city with more than 84,000 total square feet. The historical industrial building used to repair, restore, and service locomotives, and Stray Rescue is excited to breathe new life into the space. The organization will be more than tripling their current square footage with more play yards, walking trails, surgical suites, larger and more spacious apartments for the furry residents, and more.

“We are launching a capital campaign soon to renovate and relocate into our new expanded facility which will allow us to save more lives, grow our community outreach, and continue to make life better for the orphaned animals who so desperately need our help,” says Caldwell. The project is estimated to be completed in 3-5 years. As a no-kill organization, they never want to be in a position where they are forced to turn animals away when they need help and have nowhere else to turn. Leading by example, Stray Rescue’s new facility will serve as THE center for animal welfare in St. Louis and beyond, including humane education, volunteer opportunities, expanded veterinary trauma center and adoption center.
