WOW, our newest arrival is a hard one to look at. This kitty's foot has somehow been ripped off and his bones and muscle are exposed. He just got here about ten minutes ago and we absolutely cannot BELIEVE how sweet and grateful he is! What a tough little guy! Our veterinarians are also taking a look at his injury but don't believe it to be fresh, so he may have been living this way for awhile. Can you imagine? He's scarfing down some food…

Jolene

This poor baby just arrived! She is a mess. Her ears are huge, swollen and infected, pus is coming out of an open wound on top of her head, she has a "cherry eye" in both eyes which is is causing a lot of irritation and inflammation. We can tell by her body she's had litter after litter after litter. We named this BEAUTIFUL girl Jolene. We gave her a little bit of baby talk and she just went wild. Has anyone ever told you…
The phone rings at Stray Rescue, and a kind woman named Sheila is on the other end. She had just seen a dog dart into an abandoned house, and she looks like she has a horrible wound on her neck and needs help. Our rescue dispatch team sends Donna who heads out and spots the dog right away. But she’s been let down by humans before and is so scared, so she runs off and keeps her distance. Although she won't come close, she keeps…
This girl was hanging around someone's house for a few days and eventually made it into her backyard. That's when her injury was noticed and we were called - she was also described as very skinny. We found her and wow - She has an embedded chain in her neck, but it looks like an old wound as her skin has grown over it in several places. Heading to our trauma center, this is Tallie. You're safe now, we will help you. We're not wasting…

Prayers for Clide We just picked up this poor baby - he has a prolapsed rectum. We're on our way back to our trauma center now, please say a prayer for this poor boy.

Hadley

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.…
