His Horrors are Behind Him, Meet Clooney Animal Control Officers saw a dog running down the street and he was in bad shape. They brought him to Stray Rescue's trauma center for immediate action and medical attention. Dr. Schulz and our incredible team of Vet Techs were ready for him when he arrived and saw his raw face. He appeared to have been in a bad dog fight and needed help quick. His face looked like shredded meat and his lips and part of his…
2019: THE YEAR OF THE WARRIOR The definition of a Warrior is: a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. This has undoubtedly been the year of Warriors here at Stray Rescue. Sadly, we see the starved, abused, neglected and abandoned. But this year we have seen more than our share. Because we have seen such extreme cases who have recovered where even the strongest may have given up, we have labeled 2019 the year of the Warrior. I would like to introduce you to some…
Soda Fountain's Heartbreaking Story Please meet Soda Fountain, a very special soul who has just joined the Stray Rescue of St. Louis family. After being hit by a car and left for dead on the side of the road, we’re told she laid there in excruciating pain for around 4 days. She couldn’t stand or walk on her own and was laying there helpless. Finally, someone found her and called us. We welcomed her with open arms and quickly set her up for x-rays because…
Saving Scooch We want to introduce you to yet another WARRIOR of 2019. This is Scooch. Read his story, as told by his rescuer, Donna: We drove down a long, gravel road. When we got to the end, there were abandoned houses surrounded by tall grass and weeds. A path of flattened grass led us to an opening under a vacant house. It was hot and pitch dark, but we spotted the dog at the very back of the crawl space in the light of…
Skin Deep 7/10 3:30pm Someone has been very cruel to this boy. The animal abuse must stop. Rushing him to our trauma center now. We promise to give you updates soon. Keep our newest rescue, Dutch Boy, in your hearts. #stoptheabuse 7/10 5:00pm We’re shaving and cleaning Dutch Boy now.

Animal Abuse doesn't take a Summer Vacation Part II Sadly, we are adding another abused dog to the list already this summer. Meet Conn Smythe. *WARNING – GRAPHIC PHOTOS* When you look at him, you feel a range of emotions, from raging anger to sheer heartbreak. He was living on a chain, attached to a dog house - or something you can barely even call a dog house. The smell of infection permeates the air around him, and when you lift his neck, you see…
Animal Abuse doesn't take a Summer Vacation WARNING Graphic Photos This week, we took in several horrible cases in needing medical emergency care. Stray Rescue doesn't get a summer vacation from animal abuse. Marshall Tucker First, meet our angel, Marshall Tucker. This little puppy needs your prayers! At just 9 weeks old, he has already seen the worst life has to offer. We're told he was attacked by another dog last Thursday. The infection is awful. This is such a horrible and sad case, but…

Old Red and the Importance of Heartworm Preventative No, Old Red isn't very, very pregnant. He is a male and this poor boy is suffering from severe heartworms and congestive heart failure and, as a result, is retaining a huge amount of fluid. Needless to say, his appearance was incredibly startling when a good Samaritan found him laying outside of a church. Old Red is currently undergoing treatment, so please say a prayer for him and think good thoughts. Updates will be given as they…
Rescued on 5/10 with multiple injuries, this is Gizmow. Just went on a tough rescue - sorry this is graphic, there is a lot of blood. We're rushing her to our trauma center now. Thank you to the Fire Department for calling and helping us get her in the car. This sweet girl is safe in our clinic and receiving support for her pain. We're pretty sure her jaw is broken and are going to do x-rays to see if we find bullets. Updates coming.…
