VIP (Very Important Pets) RSQ is passionate about educating the public about pet ownership, spaying/neutering and rescuing as many homeless pets as they can. They have a relationship with the City of St. Louis Animal Care & Control (which is not open to the public, rescue groups only) assisting them with the rescue of dogs & cats, many of which are more difficult to adopt into permanent homes due to the breed or medical condition. They have had great success in placing many of these disadvantaged animals into loving and responsible homes.

VIP RSQ is a licensed 501c3 Non-Profit rescue organization committed to rescuing and re-homing shelter pets.
