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.

Donate 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 opportunites 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.

Some Good Samaritans happened to be at the Rapid Lube - Alton, IL when a man drove his truck in with a cat giving birth to kittens in his engine. Thankfully the employees were able to get mom and babies out with minimal injuries. Upon removal, Mama gave birth to another kitten right on the spot!

We received the call and of course we said we’d take them in and care for them. They were immediately transported to one of our special medical fosters.

It’s kitten season and soon we’ll be overwhelmed with calls for help. Each year we work extremely hard to save as many litters as possible, it’s truly one of the most difficult times of the year.

Like most everyone, we are limited during the COVID 19 social ban so times are especially hard for our shelter. Donations are lifesaving and no amount is too small. We are very grateful for your help. Thank you!
