We lost our dogs within 5mts of each other, after awhile I was ready for a new best friend. We came across our sweet boy Flip on pet finders filled out the application, it took a bit but, after with working with Jamie and all her support I hopped in my car drove 3hrs to get the new member of our family! 4paws was great to work with! Had I brought additional adoption money I would have had Flip and his brother. So thankful for each of you and all you do!

I have been a fan of 4paws4rescue since they began 11 years ago. I have fostered for them. 3 of my 6 dogs come from them.
IMO there is no better rescue in St Louis. Their commitment and devotion to saving animals cannot be matched.

My sweet Winston was adopted through 4Paws and fostered by Jamie. She took a shy, scared little boy and taught him to trust. He is such a joy and so loving. He would have had a horrible life without Jamie. She’s the absolute best.

We were looking to expand our family and wanted to rescue. Our foster mom, Jamie was amazing! She was thorough in researching us, made sure we had plenty of time to meet and play, and communicated everything about our pup. Our pup is truly a part of our family, he is our best friend. He was so very well behaved from the first day we brought him home. Jamie made the adoption process easy. From day one, we knew we hit the puppy lottery. She gives the animals in her care all the love, attention, and training that they deserve. Adopting through 4Paws4Rescue was the best decision we’ve ever made. We are so appreciative, grateful, and blessed for everything that this organization did for our pup and our family.

Being a vet tech I am super picky about rescues, but working with 4 paws was amazing!! Jamie was so thorough, kind, and I could really tell she cared for (Eli) Flint when she did her home visit and when we finalized the adoption. I cannot say enough good things about them and all of their fosters are beyond lucky to be in their homes and then places with their forever families.
Thank you for all you do

One of the best rescues we have ever had the pleasure to work with and volunteer for! They take on cases so many will not or are not able to help with. Just look at some of these before and after pictures once they have the vetting and love and care that 4 Paws 4 Rescue provides!

4 Paws 4 Rescue has changed my life. My family has welcomed two of the sweetest, most loving dogs from this rescue. They are so well cared for while being fostered in the homes of those who volunteer for this organization. I am grateful for this group and all their dedication to rescue.

I’ve volunteered with several rescues in several states over the years and 4 Paws is hands down my favorite. They were so welcoming and really have the dogs/cats best interest in mind. I’m so glad I found them!

My family and I have transported and fostered for 4 paws and have loved every minute of it. They take such great effort to find the best home for each animal.

Our experience was amazing. Lori is a foster parent whom I met through work. My 8 yrs old at the time was active in 4-H and had been in the Dog Care program for a year. Loves dogs and we have two pets at home, that are family pets. But she wanted her OWN dog. We took our Daughter over to Lori's home so she could "volunteer" and help at the foster home for pets. (That is what she knew). It was a test to see if one was she interested in any puppies that were up for rescue and two did Lori think the breed was a good fit for her and our family. She ended up of course LOVING all the dogs, but really liked two of them. We then told her that Dad was giving in (he-he) and she could pick out a puppy. The stipulation was she had to raise the adoption fee her self. So with the help and patience of Lori, we would visit this puppy while she was working around the neighborhood to raise the money. Mission accomplished! We came home with a super cute little Aussie boy puppy, whom my Daughter named Maui. The adoption experience was wonderful. We have even had puppy play dates with others from his litter. We can't imagine our family with out Maui!

I adopted 3 of my amazing dogs from 4 Paws 4 Rescue and I am a foster parent. I absolutely love this organization and the difference they make in the lives of animals in need. They are truly a selfless group of volunteers that aim to educate and make an impact on the overpopulation of homeless and stray companion animals.
