4-Legged Kids was started in 1997. Since that time we have grown into the largest in-home pet care service in the St. Louis County and St. Charles County areas with over 150,000 visits in homes just like yours. Whether you need pet sitting or dog walking services in from Central West End, to Eureka, to St. Charles, we’re only a call away! We have seen about everything…from our usual dogs and cats to horses, chickens, goats, iguanas, snakes, birds, pocket pets…you name it!

But we aren’t all about numbers here…at least not just those numbers. The numbers we focus on are the ones that impact local animal rescue. Like the years we have served local rescue by advocating, volunteering, and fostering. Or the meals, annual vaccinations, and spay/neuters that we provide on a monthly basis to St. Louis no-kill shelters.

Join our team in our Mission to Connect and Support Pets and People while supporting local animal rescue. Take a look at our Family…we would love to have you join us in making a DIFFERENCE!
