Cops FOR Pets

2021 Cops for Pets - Social Media banner v2

Cops for Pets is an initiative that began in 2019 by Sgt. Wood of the Olivette Police Department.  In the month of December 2019, the Olivette Community donated over $200 worth of supplies which were donated to the Saint Louis County Pet Adoption Center (located in Olivette at the northeast corner of Baur Blvd & Ashby Rd).

How to Donate (Three Ways)

1. Drop Off

This year, Cops for Pets is once again holding a donation drive during the entire month of December.  Donation bins will be located in the lobby of the Olivette City Center (1140 Dielman Rd) as well as at the Olivette Community Center (9723 Grandview Dr).  We are also looking to partner with local businesses who would "host" a donation bin.  If you are interested in hosting a donation bin, contact Officer Dane Lincoln (call 314-983-5251 or email dlincoln@olivettemo.com)

How Donations Are Distributed

If you wish to make a donation to the Saint Louis Pet Adoption Center, you may drop off any new pet supplies.  While only certain items may be used due to sanitary reasons or contracts the Center has with some suppliers, rest assured donated items the Center cannot use are not thrown out.  The St. Louis Pet Adoption Center has designated animal investigators who can use some supplies not able to be used "in-house".  Further, the Center has partnerships with other local stray and rescue shelters.

2. Give Money

The Saint Louis County Animal Control Center has a registered 501c(3) called S.A.V.E. (Shelter Animals Valued Every Day) who's mission is to improve the quality of life for animals in the Saint Louis County Animal Control Center and lower the euthanasia rate to as close to zero as possible.  Any amount given through December to S.A.V.E. will count towards the drive.
