APA Canine Carnival
Every October, the Animal Protective Association (APA) hosts their "Canine Carnival" at Tilles Park in St. Louis. Humans and canines alike come together to enjoy games, prizes, treats, music, food trucks and an opportunity to experience community outreach. It's a great opportunity to advocate and educate on animal welfare issues. It's also a perfect time for the Alliance to meet with current supporters and sign up new ones. Hope to see every in 2017!
Dog by Dog
On January 14, 2016, the anticipated "Dog by Dog" documentary premiered at the Landmark Cinema Frontenac Plaza in St. Louis. Thanks to an anonymous sponsor on behalf of the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation, all ticket purchases benefitted the Alliance (as well as the 5414 Productions DBD Educational Fund.)
An interesting fact about the film: the film team spent 10 days in Missouri, and the battle over Prop B (the puppy mill bill that was defeated) is a featured segment of the film. Interviews with Alliance Executive Director Bob Baker are also featured.
An important Alliance's fundraiser, "Mardi Growl" offers Kansas City area supporters a fun and vibrant venue in which to engage and enjoy festivities, while helping raise awareness and funding for the Alliance's work. This opportunity to come together with fellow advocates has become an important staple in the Alliance's fundraising efforts. We look forward to hosting Mardi Growl again in 2018!
Open Your Heart Gala "In Our Wildest Dreams"
The annual Open Your Heart Gala is the Alliance's most important fundraiser. It provides up to one-third of the organization's budget which, as a non-profit, depends solely on the generosity of supporters.
The event was held at the amazing Lucas Park Grille in downtown St. Louis, and was a fantastic way for fellow advocates to come together and connect over food, fellowship and to learn about the latest issues, victories, and challenges. The evening delivered on food and fun, and 2017's Open Your Heart was our most successful one ever!
This fundraiser is open to the public so we hope you'll join us (again) next year!

Humane Day at the Capitol
Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Every spring, hundreds of supporters across the state gather in Jefferson City to ask our legislators to push for stronger animal-protection laws.
Humane Day was a great success this year! We had productive meetings with several key state senators who visited with us in the rotunda. Most importantly, your visits to your legislators paid off. We heard from several legislators who actually changed their positions on several animal bills because of your visits with them. Congratulations to all who came to Humane Day in Jefferson City. Your efforts truly made a difference!
St. Louis Pet Expo
The first weekend of November 2016, the Alliance participated in the St. Louis Pet Expo at the St.Charles Convention Center. We worked with volunteers, signed up new supporters, answered questions, and advocated for animal welfare. This event takes place every year and offers a great opportunity to educate the public and reach out to fellow animal advocates. We hope to see our supporters at the 2017 Pet Expo!

Hoppy Hour at Craft Beer Cellar Clayton
On Thursday, December 8, 2016 the Alliance teamed up with animal lovers Craft Beer Cellar Clayton where they donated 100% of their Happy Hour proceeds to the Alliance! Turnout was moderate (it was VERY cold that evening!) but we still managed to raise a couple hundred dollars for the animals. We're looking forward to holding another fun "Hoppy Hour" in the Spring, so stay tuned - and BRING YOUR DOG - Craft Beer Cellar Clayton is animal-friendly!
Pool Paws for Humane Laws "Dog Swims"
At the end of summer, Alliance supporters and their canine companions are invited to take a refreshing dip in a local pool for fun frolics and playtime (canines can swim - humans, wading only!) Host pools in 2016 were: McNair Park Pool in St. Charles, Kirkwood Aquatic Center in Kirkwood, and Alligator's Creek Aquatic Center in O'Fallon. 50% of the entry fees for these events go to the Alliance, on behalf of animal welfare. It's a great way to wind down the summer!
St. Louis Earth Day
Sat/Sun April 22/23, 2017
Every year, St. Louisans celebrate Earth Day in the nation's "best city park". In 2017, this celebration took place over a 2 day period, during which time the Alliance hosted a table and spoke with fellow animal welfare advocates and environmentally conscious citizens. We enjoyed spending time with new volunteers as well as some "regulars", and all are so greatly appreciated! Did you know that there are bills on the docket in the Missouri Legislature that impact not just animals but our immediate environment? For more info, click here.
