Our Featured Pet...

Juliet is a wonderful lap cat that is need of a good home. She was thrown outside during the freezing winter just because she was pregnant. It wasn't her fault, her owners did not get her spayed. She suffered during her time outside, she has the frostbite scars to prove it. She finally made it safely to Open Door. She now waits for that perfect home to come so she can be rescued again. She is a wonderful girl that loves people of all ages. If you have a lap that needs to be filled by a big, sweet lovebug, then Juliet is your girl. Come by and meet Juliet, make sure to bring her some catnip, she just loves it.

Mark the Date!

We have wonderful cats and kittens 24/7 waiting for you to come to the Adoption Center at Chesterfield PetSmart and give them a new home. Please come and meet them - we know you'll want to adopt one. They're not in cages and are loads of fun to visit! We'd love to have more volunteers to help care for them. If you're interested, send us an email or give us a call! We have many parent/child volunteer teams - a fun way to spend time together and do a good deed!

Our Mission

ODAS is the St. Louis area's largest no-kill shelter dedicated to preserving the life and health of homeless cats and dogs, providing shelter, food , veterinary care and most importantly, lots of LOVE! while fostering social skills and encouraging adoption into loving homes.

Adopting a friend

To adopt an animal from Open Door Animal Sanctuary you must commit to provide the utmost care for our angels. We believe the perfect home is one with a lifetime commitment to the health and happiness of their adopted friend. Adequate shelter, good food, fresh water and regular veterinary care are necessities and we have one more key requirement - at least 100 kisses a day for the life of your new family member!

We screen potential adopters to make sure they will provide the care that we feel is important. To ensure this, we require a home visit before any of our babies go home, we just want to make sure that they are in the best hands. We work hard to know the personalities of our furry guests and to understand each of them so that we are prepared to help you find the best fit for your lifestyle. Our goal is to make the best match possible to ensure a happy lifetime in your home. If you're a kind and caring family looking for a pet, please come and visit us. We'll help you find the perfect match!

The adoptable pets listing here is only a partial one. It's tough to keep up pics and bios for the very large number of wonderful pets we have for you to choose. If you don't see what you're looking for or if you have a particular pet in mind, please give us a call. Just because you don't find it listed doesn't mean we don't have just the pet for you!

Our adoption area is generally a 100 mile radius of the St. Louis area. It is important for us to have the opportunity to assist people in their homes with their new pet if needed and even more critical that as a no-kill shelter, we can readily "retrieve" our friends if something happens in the future. Thanks for understanding.

Our adoption fee is $120. That includes all necessary shots up to the date of adoption, spaying/neutering, wormings, flea/tick preventative, and microchip. Our cats are tested, and receive a negative result, for feline leukemia and FIV (feline aids). Dogs are tested for heartworms and receive heartworm preventatives. Our facility is an open environment so our prospective pets aren't confined in small cages. We provide lots of socialization with people and with each other. One word of warning - our babies are frequently spoiled by our animal-loving staff and volunteers. We try to make sure that we provide them with everything we can - but WE NEED YOU to provide a LOVING FUR-EVER HOME!

Come Visit Us! We think you'll like what you see!

We generally house more than 200 cats and kittens and 80 to 90 dogs and puppies. Please come and visit us between 10:00 and 4:00 any day of the week (holidays, too - 10 to 2!)
