Hadley

Mar12
November 26: A woman was on her daily walk in a park near her house when she found this poor baby! She carried her home and had no idea what to do. She called us and we went to get her immediately. This poor angel needs your prayers, we named her Hadley! She's too weak to stand and has nearly starved to death. Hopefully, we got her in time to turn this around. November 27: This girl has broken our hearts. Just lifting her head…

We tried to rescue this elusive girl all day. She ran from us, as fast as she could, but we could see her shivering and it looked like she had a deformed foot. She ducked into abandoned houses and burned out buildings to hide from us. To our great relief, she finally took a leap of faith and went into our trap. When we got her back to our clinic and were finally able to get a nice, up close look at her, we discovered…
February 12TH: Between our cold rescues, we were contacted by St. Clair County Animal Control. They picked up this veryyyy skinny little girl after her owner died. Either family members didn't know he had a dog, or didn't do anything. She was found in his home, in her crate, starving to death. She's just 23 pounds, which is exactly what Hadley weighed when she came in. They said she was so frail, she couldn't even stand at first. We picked her up today and she…
Donna was out checking for any cold strays who needed help and had someone with her on a ride-along. She stopped on the side of the road when she saw a doghouse, sitting in the middle of nowhere. She walked up to the doghouse, and saw straw sticking out of the front. Dread and heaviness filled her when she realized the doghouse was not empty. It hurts us to even type these words. Inside was a beautiful white dog with a collar, frozen to death.…

Did you know? Nearly half of the dogs we rescue have Heartworm Disease. With thousands of dogs rescued every year, the number with heartworm disease is astounding. Our adoption team often hears that families are unaware of what this actually is, so we are here to help! This disease does not have to be a death sentence like many believe, and it’s actually easy to prevent. But once a dog has heartworms, the treatment is lengthy, expensive, and absolutely necessary for survival. Treatment costs are…
12/28/20- A truck driver called this morning to say he just saw three little puppies get dumped on the side of the road, and they look so scared, lost, and hairless. We searched the area and finally found these three sad little babies behind a dumpster, shaking from the cold and bleeding from open mangy wounds. These poor babies broke our hearts. These babies are just so miserable. They're scared and they're hurting after being dumped this morning, but we will do everything possible to…
Stray Rescue is a unique place. First, we rescue from the streets. Dogs and cats who have seen the worst of life - they've been beat up, they're starving, they've experienced abandonment and betrayal. Most come in with heartworms, and many are injured. In addition, we have developed a reputation; not that we are just no-kill, but that we won't give up on a soul, no matter the cost or time it takes to help them heal. If they have a chance to heal and…
2020: More Lives Saved than Ever Before As we begin to look back and reflect on this year, it is one like no other. It threw us all a curve ball no one could ever have anticipated, and everyone tried to adapt the best they could. No matter how hard it was or how much heartbreak your family may have endured, one thing is a constant with everyone: Family and friends are more important than ever. And for us, we have never been more grateful.…
