Giving Back

March 7, 2013 

St. Louis Blues player David Backes and his wife Kelly have joined forces with Five Acres Animal Shelter (formerly St. Charles Humane Society) to help neglected animals through David’s Dogs and Kelly’s Kats. David & Kelly work to help the shelter by promoting and participating in various fundraisers. They also are members of the Board of Directors.

The program – David’s Dogs and Kelly’s Kats – will highlight three dogs and three cats each month on the Barkin’ for the Blues segment of the St. Louis Blues community website and on the Five Acres Animal Shelter website.

Five Acres Animal Shelter is the only no-kill animal shelter in St. Charles County, Missouri. Animals in their care are not euthanized to make room for new ones - the dogs and cats in thier care stay as long as needed until they find their forever home.

If you’re interested in adopting a furry friend, please visit Five Acres Animal Shelter at 1099 Pralle Lane, St. Charles, Missouri or call 636-949-9918.
