Ways to Help


There are a multitude of ways to help SAPA carry out it’s charitable mission to save and find forever homes for cats and dogs.  Many of these include;


Volunteering - There are many volunteering opportunities such as taking care of dogs and cats at the shelter, the cats at the Florissant Petco, animal enrichment, training, vet runs, helping at off-site adoption and special events. You can also join our marketing and fundraising committees.  


Donating - Cash donations are ALWAYS welcome!  You can do that right here on our website or donate money to Rock Road Animal Hospital (tell them it’s for SAPA). There is a Wish List that shows many of the non-cash items you can donate that help us in our charitable mission.  INDIRECT DONATIONS don’t cost you any money at all, yet they provide funds to us.  Amazon Smile is easy.  Order through Amazon Smile Vs Amazon.com and they will donate .5% of your purchases to SAPA. If you get your prescriptions through Schnucks, sign up for their escrip program.  Schnucks will donate 1~3% of your monthly prescriptions.


Sharing - This is important because it gives visibility to SAPA and our animals.  Some of our animals are in the shelter or at Petco, but most of them are in Foster.  We need to use the Internet to attract a potential adopter’s eye.  Sharing is relatively easy and can be done at any time of day.  For example, you can ‘Like’ us on FB or ‘Follow’ us on Twitter.  Then share our adoptable animals as well as our adoption events or fundraisers on them. You can also join the Homeless Pet Club and/or Pet Advancement Club.
