Teaming Up For Our Greatest Fans

We want to express a huge thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate our public launch on Sunday night! We are thrilled to have so much support at this stage and look forward to working together as the organization grows.

The launch party took place at Mandarin Lounge in St. Louis on Sunday, November 10. Guests were greeted with larger-than-life letters that spelled out A4A, followed by a red carpet entrance, lined with adoptable dogs and cats. The atmosphere was energetic and celebratory – everyone enjoyed signature blue cocktails and the musical stylings of DJ Jeff “Greasy” Greishaber.  All attendees, Athlete Ambassadors or not, were invited to sign the All-Star Owner Pledge to commit to providing healthy, loving care to their pets.
