Rescue Stories
We will tell the story the best we can, but with social media (which can be both a blessing and a curse), there are a lot of versions of the story going around. So, without getting into muddy waters, here is what are going to share: We were tagged in and sent a post that was going viral of a husky chained up in what looked like woods or thick brush, with horrible injuries. We couldn’t count how many times it was sent to us.…
*WARNING* GRAPHIC, MEET OUR WARRIOR, ADIRA Scroll down, warning - **graphic content** If you do not wish to view her story but want to donate to her care, click here to bypass graphic content: DONATE NOW The Rescue: On June 10th, we rescued this wounded angel. Her wounds horrified us. Sources tell us she's only ever known the name "bitch." She was covered in fleas, flies, and was so dirty. She’d been living a nightmarish existence that we can’t even begin to imagine. It was…
As our streets heat up in the sweltering summer sun, the helpless wandering animals of St. Louis need you even more. Historically, the summer heat coincides with a big drop in donations. But animal abuse does not take a summer vacation. In fact, when temperatures increase we see a significant increase in the inhumane treatment of man's best friend. In the past week alone we’ve rescued animals off the street after being shot, beaten, and hit by cars. We've taken those that other shelters were…
These abandoned houses are so dangerous. Donna fell through the floor but wasn't hurt. She bravely continued on, and she and Scott rescued this angel from the basement. He had also either fallen through or jumped down and couldn't get back out.   This dog smelled so bad - he's been laying in wet trash for god knows how long. The rescue jeep needs a deep scrub.     We can't begin to tell you how sweet he is. We named him Mudder and we…
Starving for food and love - Meet Bingham Hasn't anyone EVER, in your whole life, ever shown you love? Bingham is 8+ years old. Yes, he's been starving to death. He was so thirsty, he drank water for almost 10 minutes straight...but he's also starved for love and attention. He let everyone who came to meet him give him a kiss. We drew blood for testing and he was so kind and patient while we did all our poking. He is anemic due to malnutrition…
Meet Gherkin and Frankie Girl We're known as the organization that will stop at nothing to give these precious souls the second chance they deserve; that reputation exists because of amazing and compassionate donors like you who believe in our mission. Lately we've taken in some horrible cases, one right after the other, and it's our responsibility to give them a shot at experiencing the beauty of a safe and healthy existence. There are two little broken angels we'd like to introduce to you: First,…
EMERGENCY RESCUE 2/10 Houston, We have a problem Cassady received a horrific call and we can't look away. There are 50 dogs who desperately need our help on a property a few hours from St. Louis. We are planning to head there *Thursday* morning to get them out of this hellish situation. Their owner died and we're told there are dead dogs all over, many of them are being eaten by other starving dogs. Many are pregnant as well. WE ARE BEGGING YOU TO STEP…
The worst embedded collar we have ever seen Imagine you’re a puppy and someone locks a chain around your neck. As months go by and you grow into a young adult, the chain gets tighter and tighter. So tight that it cuts into your skin, causing searing pain that you can never escape from. After awhile, this cruel prison becomes part of you as you try to block out the pain and just survive another day. A call came in that a dog with an…
Meet Danny, skin and bones As the snow and sleet came down in sheets, a couple of Good Samaritans came running into our building with a dog in tow. As he came closer, we gasped. They found him running by himself, so emaciated that his joints had open wounds from not having any fat in his body. As we pet him, he pushed himself against our hand, eager to be touched. He is dangerously thin and malnourished, so will have to be fed several small…
Little dog found in ditch needs help A Good Samaritan truck driver named Odell somehow spotted a little brown and white puppy quivering in a ditch on the side of a road. He wasn't able to stop but made sure to call us immediately. We went to check out the scene and found this little ANGEL! We couldn't tell at first, but sadly our clinic informed us that she has some significant injuries. X-rays indicate a dislocated hip and broken foot. Say a prayer for…
