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.
