This group has many caring volunteers. Some foster dogs, some fund raise, and some help at events. The volunteers are wonderful, hard-working people. St Louis Senior Dog project saves the lives of hundred of dogs each year. They help small dogs, large dogs, older dogs and young dog. They find home for strays, abused dogs, puppy mill survivors and any dog who has needs. They can use your help as a volunteer, an adoptor, or with a donation.

I am new to this group since March 2010. It has been a pleasure to meet the individual volunteers who do so much for all the dogs for whom we find homes. Great love for all dogs energizes the group to find the best home for each dog. Our fund raising committee works many hours to raise money to pay for medical needs for our dogs which often the adoption fee is not enough to cover the dentals, shots, microchips, spay/neuter, and any other medical care needed. I am proud to be a foster parent for this group.

I adopted a dog from St. Louis Senior Dog Project in 2006. He was a difficult foster but they stuck with him for almost a year and waited for his forever home (mine!). I will be eternally grateful to them for that.

I have been a volunteer since Fall 2009. I love that we are able to give dogs that would otherwise be put to sleep a second chance. As a newer volunteer, there are plenty of experienced people within the group who I can reach out to for advice. I had the unfortunate experience of having a foster dog escape from a yard. A lot of the group volunteers helped search for the dog for almost a month. Their physical and emotional assistance helped my sanity.

One of the great things about this group is that as a foster parent, you can choose the dog you want to foster so it fits best with your household.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting a lot of the families who have adopted our dogs. We have quite a few repeat adopters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have no suggestions.

My family adopted a Senior dog this fall. The foster mom spent an extraordinary amount of time with us, telling us everything she knew about our new dog. It was clear the foster mother, and the entire organization, cares tremendously about these dogs! Yeah for St Louis Senior Dog Project!

The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a non-profit dog (&, occasionally, cat) rescue organization that specializes in older dogs, but takes in and finds homes for dogs of all ages. They understand that, no matter the pet's age, every animal deserves to find happiness within a forever home.



I fostered several dogs through the St. Louis Senior Dog Project over the course of a year & a half. The volunteers were always professional, caring, & respectful to both the animals & potential adoptive owners. They understand the the needs of the animals, & they work hard to ensure that the dogs & cats are placed with the best-suited human.



I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this organization. I only stopped fostering because I fell in love with one of my fosters, & I knew that she was more than just a foster: she was destined to be part of my family!



The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a fantastic animal rescue, & I continue to recommend them to anyone looking for a forever friend!

We adopted our dog, Baxter, from the St. Louis Senior Dog Project in November 2009. We were really impressed with how much love and care they give to every dog they foster. They really do their research on the people wanting to adopt.

I am also very impressed with Ellen's blog and love reading about all of the stories of the STLSDP and their amazing rescues!

They are obviously a very trustworthy, caring organization. I have recommended them anywhere I can. Thank you!

not change anything.

I adopted my dog from St. Louis Senior Dog Project in October of 2009, and I couldn't be happier! The staff was excellent and friendly, I spoke with them ahead of time and then picked him up at an adoption event at Petco in Kirkwood. They're great about sending me updates about the Dog Project, even after I moved away, and my dog is the most fantastic investment I ever could have made!

Meeting with their staff and pets.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hold even more adoption events!
