ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis County officials say they’re doing everything they can to help people affected by recent storms, but they also wants to help animals.

The county animal shelter will be taking any pets whose owners’ homes are ruined and can’t bring a dog or cat to a hotel while repairs are completed.

County Executive Charlie Dooley says the county animal shelter is open to those 4-legged victims of the storm.

“For individuals who, for example, have lost their homes and have another place to go and live tonight, we’re saying that you can leave your dogs with the county shelter at no cost,” he says. “And as long as you need them to be there, they can be there.”

He says it applies to cats and other pets, too.

For help, you can call the county animal shelter.
