About

Our Mission

Operation SPOT (OpSPOT) is dedicated to eliminating the unnecessary euthanasia of dogs and cats in St. Louis and surrounding areas. We were founded in 1995 and incorporated as a 501c3 not-for-profit.


OpSPOT doesn’t receive income from federal, state or local taxes — or from charities such as United Way. Income is received from donor generosity, fundraisers, and grants.

Financial records are annually reviewed by a Certified Public Accountant. Information about OpSPOT is submitted to Guidestar, the Missouri Secretary of State’s office and the Missouri Attorney General’s office — for registration and inclusion on the charity website.

OpSPOT does not discriminate in regards to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability, age or sexual orientation.
