Join Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria at our Town & Country location on February 21st for our monthly Giveback Tuesday event. The proceeds from the day are going to the non-profit Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
The no-kill shelter rescues dogs and cats from the streets or those scheduled to be euthanized at overcrowded shelters in the City of St. Louis and the surrounding metro areas. The animals are medically and emotionally rehabilitated, spayed, neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated to prepare them for adoption.
Katies Pizza’s Giveback Initiative
Each month, we’re proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has donated $347,982 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis!
Stray Rescue’s Plans for the Donation
The non-profit will use our donation to bolster its Stracks Fund program, which is used for the many medical emergencies that enter the shelter’s doors.
Despite an annual medical budget of two million dollars, Stray Rescue must find other ways to raise funds, as they average 3,000 rescues yearly and provide medical services for pet owners that cannot afford specific procedures.
About Stray Rescue of St. Louis
Since opening its doors in 1998, Stray Rescue’s mission has been to save as many animals as possible.
The minute rescues enter the shelter’s doors, the dedicated staff and volunteers look in their eyes and promise all of them the second chance they deserve for health, home, and love, no matter the time and cost.
To improve the health and safety of rescues and animals still on the streets, Stray Rescue implements 14 programs that enrich our community and empower the shelter’s army of lifesavers to do everything they can to help.
When asked what the most gratifying part of its work was, Stray Rescue of St. Louis said, “The dogs and cats that we rescue have lived in a nightmare. Helping them physically and emotionally and finding forever families who give them a dream life is the most gratifying part of what we do. Seeing a rescue that came from a dilapidated and dangerous house get to run around a backyard with a pool, wear a bandana, and eat pup cups gives us life!”

Everyone deserves a second chance at life, but Stray Rescue cannot keep its doors open without the support of our St. Louis community and its businesses.
