Rescue Stories
Saving Sunflower Oh my gosh. We received these photos of this little soul. We're told she has a broken jaw, but it's hard to tell what exactly is going on in the pictures. She was going to be euthanized, but Cassady our Executive Director, saw the photos and knew this little puppy deserved a fighting chance. We'll do everything we can to help her because that is who we are. Updates to come.   We named her Sunflower. She is receiving fluids and on pain…
Imagine the Day suffering stops: This is Denver **CAUTION, GRAPHIC** Today, we rescued this poor soul!! We loaded him in the car and immediately took him to Stray Rescue's trauma center for emergency, life-saving care. His neck is shredded. It looks like he was in a dog-fight to the death, but somehow came out the other side alive. We're thankful to the construction workers who found him and called us right away. When we laid eyes on him, we shocked to say the least. We…
The Freedom Fund is utilized for rewards, investigation and prosecution related to animal abuse cases. This fund helps to make a profound difference in our community by allowing us to be a leading partner in the investigation and prosecution of animal abusers to hold them accountable for their actions. From dog fighting to neglect to intentional cruelty to animals, we rescue innocent lives from brutal abuse and follow up to make sure that the perpetrators are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Sadly,…
A kitten rescue like no other:Meet Hook and Ladder!This morning, we were contacted by a very worried Good Samaritan because he heard a kitten crying for help from underneath a highway overpass! This tiny sweetheart was crying so loud that we could hear him over all of the traffic passing above. We knew we weren't going to leave without taking him back with us. Our ladder was too short, even when we put it on top of our jeep. There's no way we would ever…
Meet Warrior Kitten, Sue R. Kitty! Add to the list of things 2020 will be known for. For us, it will be that it’s the longest and craziest kitten season we have ever had! Last week we introduced you to another kitten rescued from a sewer. It was a rescue that lasted all day - nearly 8 hours. But how could we ever give up knowing she was down there all by herself? And so hungry! We tried all sorts of things to rescue her,…
So who is Stray Rescue? We are the ones who rescue the dogs and cats that no one else will. Whether they are trying to survive the cruelty of the streets or suffering from severe abuse or major injuries, we promise them a safe haven with us. Regardless of effort or cost, we never give up on an animal if they can have a good life. We receive criticism periodically about this and hear comments like, "Why would you spend so much money on this…
World, we are ready for you to meet Jumbo Jack. He came to us with a gunshot in his face. We are told he was shot two weeks ago and left untreated. When he arrived, we confirmed YES, this is not a fresh wound. This giant angel has been suffering all alone for weeks. What a hellish existence he was forced to live, by the hand of man. When he arrived at Stray Rescue, we cleaned him up and of course, as we always do,…

Thicket

Jul01
June 17, 2020 This sweet little guy is so grateful for help. His name is Thicket, as we found him hiding in tall grass. Had he not popped his little head up, we're not sure if we would have found him. His wound is necrotic and full of maggots (we will spare you the videos we took). He's getting all cleaned up and looked over by our amazing vet team. He also has a wound under his neck and on the back of his leg…
June 18, 2020 This sweet angel was sent straight from heaven. She is so affectionate and just wants to lay and cuddle! But she's heading into surgery, so we'll have to save our cuddles for later. This is Isabella, please say a prayer her eye removal goes well! She's going to feel so much better soon. Donations welcome! UPDATE: June 19, 2020 We know you are waiting for an update on Isabella! Her surgery went well and her eye came out fine. However, her case…
This is one for the books: This dog was thrown off of a bridge! He landed on a rock and crawled for help. Luckily a kind family was swimming nearby, saw the whole thing, and rushed to his aid. He was kept overnight in a nearby clinic until he was stable enough to travel to our trauma center. He has a left rear hip luxation with a bone fragment in the socket, his left front shoulder is injured but not fractured, and he has pneumothorax…
