Open Door is a reputable, 501(c)3 non-profit with a 43 year history of helping homeless animals in greater St. Louis.  We are proud that our program vs. administrative/fundraising percentage is ALWAYS higher than the minimum suggested average of 75% (our five year average is 84.5%).  This means an average of nearly 85 cents on every dollar donated is spent directly on the nearly 400 cats and dogs we take care of each day here at our Sanctuary.  And, we are a Guidestar Gold Star Charity and an accredited Better Business Bureau Charity!   Open Door can be trusted as a good steward of your charitable contribution.

Open Door Animal Sanctuary does not receive any city, state or federal funding. It is the generosity of people and organizations that make our work possible. We recognize that each contribution represents a judgement of trust in our ability to help the animals, and we are deeply appreciative for every bit of support that we receive. Donations from individual persons provide a significant percentage of our annual funding and are essential to sustain our work. Open Door is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity. By giving to Open Door you have the opportunity to permanently change the future of our animals. Open Door has so many wonderful animals that need new homes. Even a small donation will make a BIG difference! A $50 gift can go towards spaying or neutering a pet. Donations – large and small – can help a young kitten that needs special medication or help a dog get the immediate care that it needs to get adopted.
