A Better Life for Cats in St. Louis


Welcome to Animal House

Where Cats Heal, Play and Find Their Forever Home

Animal House is a safe, loving place for rescued cats to live while they find their forever homes. Our feline residents are welcome to stay with us as long as it takes for them to meet their perfect human match. In other words, we have a “no-kill” policy.

We’re located in St. Louis, Missouri, and care for 200 to 300 kittens and cats of all sizes, breeds and ages. It’s important work that happens every day. Our Director, Brandyn, and volunteer staff will happily introduce you to cats of all kinds, fill you in about their personalities, and assist you with adoption when you find your match. It’s our number one priority to help cats find permanent, loving homes. Everything we do supports this goal.

Come visit us when you’re ready for a long-term feline relationship!

Kitty of the Month: Betsy

Meet our Kitty of the Month, Betsy!
Sex: Female
DOB: March 2017
Breed: Classic brown tabby, domestic short hair



About: A kind Animal House supporter was driving to St. Louis to visit family when she pulled over at a truck stop at about 9pm.  As she opened her car door, out of the darkness came a sweet, scruffy little kitty.  Scared, bewildered, and alone.  No one claimed the kitty so she hit the road with her rescuer, headed for St. Louis. This kitty, now known as Betsy, curled right up in her rescuer’s lap and slept there peacefully for the next five hours until they made it to St. Louis. Betsy then spent the rest of the night cuddled up in bed with her rescuer as if she had always been there.  The next day they came to Animal House.  We quickly discovered Betsy did not have a microchip indicating ownership, but her love for humans is clear.  She loves to be cuddled, sit in laps, and socialize with both cats and humans alike.  She’s ready to find her forever family who love and care for her for the rest of her life!
