You may remember this sweet face from a few weeks back. While doing her wellness check after being transferred to Five Acres, we sadly discovered that Molly is heartworm positive and will need immediate treatment. Treatment for this condition in canines is long, uncomfortable, and overall unpleasant - the shelter is no place for a dog to have to go through this, and we would love to find a home for her before she begins. We are hoping there is a home out there willing to take in Molly and keep her calm and comfortable while she goes through treatment. She is dog-friendly and could go to a home with another dog, but it would need to be dog who is laid back and will let her have her space while she recovers. Molly is a more shy girl, but with a little time she opens up into the sweet snuggle-bug she is. 

If you are interested in becoming a foster for Molly, please click below and complete our foster survey! If you have any questions about being a medical foster, please reach out to our Adoption & Foster Coordinator, Alyssa, at

On Saturday, September 23rd giving back to Five Acres Animal Shelter is as easy as sitting in your car! For one whole day our friends at Soapify Car Wash in St. Peters is donating 100% of profits to the cats and dogs at Five Acres! We'll be dropping in as well with some adoptable animals, so be sure to stop by for a car wash and a quick cuddle! 

August was a happy month for many animals and adopters! We're thrilled to report that just in the month of August, 182 animals found their forever homes! 143 cats and 39 dogs are now happy and healthy with families who will love them for all of their days. Thank you to our adopters for giving these animals the happy ending they deserve!

To help support the dogs and cats at the shelter and to commemorate our 50th anniversary, we are taking orders for quarter-zip sweatshirts and full-zip jackets embroidered with our 50th anniversary logo! A portion of every purchase goes right back to our mission of enriching the lives of pets and people. Orders are only being accepted until Monday, September 18th so order yours today!


When you make a gift to Five Acres, you are helping to give the highest level of care to animals in need and giving them the chance they deserve to find a forever home. Every single dollar helps accomplish our mission of ending pet homelessness in our community.
