  • 5. Great Place

    by: tekotthoff

    When I rescued a sweet little stray running around at Elephant Rocks last year, I contacted shelter after shelter to help me find a home for him. I was pretty much at a dead end when Country Acres contacted me and said they had a space for him. \n\nWhen I took him to the facility, I was really pleased with the pleasant atmosphere and staff. The cats have a nice spot where they can watch the birds and bask in the sun, and the dogs have a nice place to play outside. These are things which most facilities lack. \n\nIf you're looking to adopt a dog or cat, puppy or kitten, check this shelter out.

    Pros

    Helped me out in tough situation

  • 6. This shelter is awesome

    by: Parrishre

    I have adopted three pets from this shelter. They were wonderful and helped me find the right pet(S) for me. They were very dedicated about finding the right home for each of their animals. The staff was very knowleadgeable about the animals behavior and personalities. I reccommend it to my friends all the time.

    Pros

    They are no kill & they truly care about the animals they help find homes for.

    Cons

    None

  • 7. What an amazing shelter!

    by: blackbirdsinging78

    I have adopted two of my pets from this shelter, a cat and a dog. The staff is very knowledgeable about all the pets up for adoption. It's more than just this cat is sweet, or the dog likes to play. They tell you as much of the history as they know (i.e. if the dog was found in a ditch or if a cat was given up because previous owner was allergic). One of the other things that is great about this shelter is that, they help other shelters. When I was adopting my dog, there were at least two dogs there that they'd gotten from another shtler because they were going to be euthanized. And one that they were holding for Stray Rescue until he could find a foster home. \n\nI ended up adopting a small dog that had been abused before coming to the shelter. 6 years prior, I'd adopted a cat from there as well. I am always referring people to this shelter! They are small, no-kill and you can tell the staff truly cares about the pets for adoption.

    Pros

    They have a good variety of pets AND they are no kill:)

    Cons

    Don't have anything bad to say :)

  • 8. wonderful staff and facility

    by: bluebarttonto

    This kennel is great for the animals and the staff very dedicated. It has large outdoor play areas where the dogs can run free and they go the extra mile to make a dog feel at home. They have been very generous in helping Stray Rescue and taken very good care of its dogs. They also rescue dogs and cats.

    Pros

    wonderful staff

    Cons

    none

  • 10. This is a nice shelter

    by: rcahoon

    Nice shelter. They work with other agencies like Stray Rescue of St. Louis to provide housing for dogs in need. I noticed they have a nice room for cats, where they have some room to roam about (not always in cages). They also have a nice yard for excercising dogs.

    Pros

    They have nice facilities for cats

    Cons

    Like most shelters, they may be understaffed
