The Best Things in Life are Rescued!

Adoptions are held on Saturdays at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart from 11am-3:30pm and on Sundays at both the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart from 11am - 3:30pm and the Edwardsville Crossing Petco from 11:30-3:30pm.  

We are proud to say that 2020 was a record breaking year for us here at Partners for Pets! Through the challenges Covid-19 presented, Partners' team worked hard to stay true to our mission of rescue and rehabilitation, and the numbers show that those efforts made a true difference in the lives of animals in need within our community. In 2020, Partners for Pets rescued 1,700 cats and dogs who were facing various situations of neglect. These numbers are so much more than just numbers. These numbers resemble the lives of homeless pets who have been directly impacted by the work of a community of animal advocates. They are all made possible by our amazing rescue network. We are so thankful for all of the support we received from our community members, donors, fosters, volunteers, and staff. 2020 was not an easy year for any of us, but, together, we make an unstoppable community on a life-saving mission! This year has been full of excitement and new challenges as we continue to expand our mission within the community. In October 2020 Partners for Pets added Dr.Lindsey Gammon to our on-site team, and, with that addition, we have been able to start offering "Community Fridays". We are so happy to have the opportunity to give back to the community that supports us most by providing low-cost clinics each week. Having an on-site veterinarian has allowed us to treat our rescued pets in house. This alone is saving the shelter thousands of dollars on veterinary care each month and also enabling us to utilize those funds towards expanding our mission to help pets in danger of euthanasia. So far in 2021 Partners for Pets has rescued over 475 cats and dogs, and that number is growing by the day as we enter puppy & kitten season!

Partners for Pets Welcomes Dr. Lindsey Gammon!

Since Partners for Pets moved to our new facility in 2014, having an on-site veterinarian has been one of our biggest goals. After years of dreaming, months and months of planning, and a whole lot of teamwork — that dream has finally become a reality.

Dr. Lindsey Gammon joined our team as the official Shelter Veterinarian! We are beside ourselves with excitement and so grateful to our amazing support system for making this dream possible.

Having a shelter veterinarian on-site will allow us to treat our rescued pets in house, saving the shelter thousands of dollars on veterinary care each month and enabling us to utilize donor dollars towards expanding our mission to help pets in danger of euthanasia, and help our community through spay/neuter, vaccine, microchip, and wellness clinics.

Partners For Pets is a licensed, 501(c)3, no-kill animal rescue located in Troy, IL.  Partners for Pets regularly visits animal control facilities and rescues animals that have used up their time, need medical care, and/or are too fragile for shelter life. Partners for Pets provides care to each animal prior to adoption. This includes, depending on their age: booster shots, deworming, heartworm check & monthly preventative, rabies shot, spay/neuter, grooming, flea/tick prevention, and other necessary care.


Veterinary care is provided at reduced cost through Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital and St. Louis Veterinary Center. A big "Thank You" to Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital and Carol House Quick Fix for all of their excellent work. About 5% of the animals are kept in foster care until adopted while the other 95% are kept in a shelter environment until they are adopted.


For more information about adopting an animal, please click on the "Adoptable Pets" tab.  Adoptions take place every Saturday at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart, every Sunday and the first Saturday of the month at the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart, and every Sunday at the Edwardsville, IL Petco.  (Note:  O'Fallon adoptions are dogs only.)

Sponsor a Shelter Animal
Unfortunately, many of the animals we pull from animal control facilities are either injured or hurt.  You can help by sponsoring a pet today to help get them back on track to being healthy and adoptable.

Volunteer Your Time
There is a lot of help needed with direct care for the animals. However, there is much more that needs to be done!  Do you have design and/or computer skills?  Are you good with marketing?  There are so many opportunities to help!

Foster a Pet
When you foster, Partners for Pets provides a crate or litter box, food, and all vet care.  We simply ask you to share your love and home with the animal until they are adopted by their forever family.

What They Need
Help the dogs and cats at the shelter by donating some of the supplies needed to provide them with the best care possible. Items needed include things like cleaning supplies, collars/leashes, beds, and toys.

A few weeks ago we stumbled upon a Facebook post regarding a 10 month old Great Pyrenees that needed rescue due to the dog being unable to walk and it's owners not having the proper home for him anymore. Of course we offered to help this big lug & just like that transport was arranged and Cotton became part of the Partners for Pets crew. In April, Cotton visited Northgate Animal Hospital for some initial x-rays to see exactly what we were dealing with and what our plan of attack would be for sweet Cotton. We were filled with hope when we found out that Cotton has double luxating patellas and a torn cruciate. While these things are very uncomfortable, especially for a 90lb puppy, they are treatable! Cotton is scheduled to have his first of two surgeries with Dr.Jacob at Red Bud Veterinary Service on Friday, April 23. He will have a long road to regain his strength and mobility but we expect Cotton to make a full recovery & find his happily ever after in a few short months.

Shelter Location: 9136 Lower Marine Rd., St. Jacob, IL 62281

Open Monday-Friday from 12PM to 4PM
