Partners for Pets 2020: A Year of Rescue in Numbers

Last week we shared the exciting news that Parters for Pets adopted out a record-breaking adoption total of 1,700 pets to their forever homes in 2020. We've done quite a bit of number crunching since then, and we are thrilled to share some more 2020 stats with you!

These numbers are so much more than numbers. These numbers make up the lives of homeless pets who have been directly impacted by the work of a community of animal advocates. And they are all made possible by our amazing rescue network. We are so thankful for all of the support from our community members, donors, fosters, volunteers and staff in 2020! Together, we make up an unstoppable community on a life-saving mission. From all of us here at Partners for Pets, thank you for your continued, unwavering support as 2021 unfolds.

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.

Join us for a family-friendly St. Patrick's Day Party in The Outlet of Edison's in Edwardsville, IL!

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.

PO Box 445, Troy, IL 62294

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.)

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.


Ocean was at animal control for 2 weeks - malnourished, missing an eye, full of fleas and worms. And on top of that, pregnant. She is so incredibly friendly, she belonged to someone at some point.

Ocean went directly into foster care and it’s a good thing she did..she had 7 kittens the following day. Unfortunately 3 of her kittens passed away due to infection, but 4 survived (Ocean’s Fishies). This poor cat has really been through it, but she’s still a loving, sweet girl.

Many thanks to Ocean’s foster mom and all of the people who believe in the work we do! Here’s to another miraculous transformation. Much Love, Partners for Pets


In October, Partners for Pets rescued Hargrove, a 4 month old hound mix from a high-kill facility in Southeastern Missouri. Upon intake our Shelter Veterinarian did an exam and noticed Hargrove's teeth didn't look quite right and recommended we keep a very close eye on him in the coming weeks as his adult teeth started to come in. In the days to come Hargrove's foster noticed that as Hargrove's adult teeth emerged they would no sooner break into pieces causing Hargrove a lot of pain and facial swelling.

A dental x-ray was ordered with our friends at Northgate Small Animal Hospital to get to the bottom of what was going on inside sweet Hargrove's mouth. Unfortunately what was found is that Hargrove's adult teeth are all growing in hollow, resulting in the breaking off of each tooth. Hargrove was referred to a dental specialist at AVS where he will undergo a full mouth extraction on February 10. The hope is that Hargrove can complete the surgery in one appointment but there is a possibility that he will have two surgeries to complete the extraction.

Although removing the teeth on such a young pup is never ideal we are so thankful that Hargrove's prognosis post surgery is very positive. His smile won't look quite like his other dog friends' but he is expected to live a long healthy life once the surgery is complete.

The cost of Hargrove's surgery is estimated at $3,000.00. Would you consider assisting Partners for Pets help sweet Hargrove? We rely on your support to continue rescuing injured and neglected animals from our surrounding communities' animal control facilities. They depend on us to give them a second chance at a happy & healthy life.
