Court Date Set For June 1st Woman Torches Dog To Death; Caught Bragging On Facebook St. Louis Animal Cruelty Task Force Seeks To Avenge Murdered Dog in Notorious Abuse Case
If you’ve been around Stray Rescue, sometimes you may hear us refer to the “rescue gods”. With so many companion animals in need, it can be comforting to believe that there is someone watching out for us – directing us to dogs who are waiting to be saved. It seems like that is what happened the first time we saw Sien.
There is an important story behind every single dog or cat we rescue, but sometimes a case comes along that is unlike anything we have ever seen. This was the case with Extension, an amazingly sweet dog we rescued on Friday, September 21st. He had been shot not once, not twice, but at least 12 times.
Hope is essential at Stray Rescue, and few things fill me with hope more than seeing a dog come back from the brink of death, make a miraculous recovery, and live the happy, healthy life he or she deserves. That is why I am overjoyed to report that Normm, who suffered some of the worst abuse I have ever seen, is safe and sound, back home with his Stray Rescue family.
The scorching St. Louis summer heat is incredibly dangerous to homeless companion animals, and thanks to your generosity and support, we've been able to save many lives. You can keep hope alive for those who are still waiting to be rescued by donating to the Stracks Fund, our emergency medical fund.
In the heat of the day during a record-breaking heat wave, Stray Rescue received a Citizen's Service Bureau report in real time about a dog who was injured... in an area well known for dogfighting.
A chapter has ended on a very personal rescue that has been over three years in the making, and thankfully the ending is a happy, heartwarming one. On an extremely tough and dangerous street, Donna and I have been caring for Cherry Pie and her litters. Today, just before record-breaking heat takes hold, she has been reunited with one of her few surviving pups in a cool, caring place at Stray Rescue.
