The St. Louis City Stray Animal Crisis Continues...
Since the City of St. Louis stopped accepting stray and owner surrendered animals in 2010, the Humane Society of Missouri has spent more than $5 million to rescue, receive, care for and find homes for thousands of St. Louis City stray animals. The Humane Society of Missouri frequently takes in more than 100 St. Louis City stray animals a day.
Stray animals are a community problem, posing a threat to the health and safety of all citizens. Pets roaming the streets are often ravaged by disease and parasites, exposed to extreme weather conditions and may be injured by cars or preyed upon by other animals.
The solution to this crisis is spay/neuter. HSMO's Spay/Neuter Initiative Program, or "SNIP," provides funding for low-cost spay and neuter surgeries.
When you "Spay it Forward," you're giving a SNIP to an animal in need.
Help stem the tide of unwanted, homeless animals roaming St. Louis streets.
Spay it Forward and Give a SNIP today.
