About Us

Rescued by 4 Paws 4 Rescue

We are a 501 (c) 3 incorporated under the name of Animal Buddies of Missouri and are d/b/a Shelter Buddies of Missouri and The Jefferson County Pet Food Pantry.  We are dedicated to helping animals get out of the shelters and to stay in their homes.

Shelter Buddies works to get strays back to their owners, find adopters for those without an owner or find a place in rescue for them.  We support the many rescues that pull from JCAC by transporting the animals to them, helping to find fosters for them, promoting their fundraisers or other events and anything else we can do. Some of us also foster animals from JCAC.  We do most of our work on Facebook.  Please see us there!


Jefferson County Pet Food Pantry helps low income people feed their pets so they can keep them at home and out of the shelter.  In order to be a member of the pantry, pet owners must prove they are receiving government assistance and that their pets are altered.  If they are not altered, the pantry helps them get them spayed/neutered through the Carol House Quick Fix Clinic.


Help us, help them.
