Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Can you make our DREAM come true?

"What sets Stray Rescue of St. Louis apart in the animal welfare community near and far? We seek out and take in those who no other organization will help or would simply euthanize because they are too expensive to heal. We take the abandoned, beaten, bred, fought, injured, terrified, defeated and betrayed. We see beyond their brokenness and are here to pick up the pieces to make these special animals whole again. We see the individual and know that there’s no “one size fits all” treatment plan. The minute they enter our doors, we look in their eyes and promise them ALL the second chance they deserve for health, home, commitment and love. Because these animals come in with a story that would give us all nightmares, it takes them longer to open up, trust and believe in humankind again. But with patience and time – always on their unique schedule – we see the light shine in their eyes again. Animals have an amazing ability to forgive which never ceases to amaze me. My goal and vision for the future of the City of Saint Louis and surrounding Metro area is to have the largest inner-city animal sanctuary.

We would love to find a compassionate and generous donor to gift Stray Rescue a large warehouse in the city with some acreage to convert into an amazing space for our animals to live and heal on their timeline. Our sanctuary will include large kennels, play yards, a swimming area, agility and enrichment activities and much more. We will have several dog apartments furnished with a home-like atmosphere, so the staff and their enrichment partners can spend time with the dogs to help them experience the comforts of what a true home is like. Additionally, we would like to partner with smaller rescue organizations that don’t have the resources they need by pulling their behaviorally challenging dogs, rehabilitate them, and help them find loving homes. Will you join us today to help make our dream a reality? You can help us once again change the landscape of animal welfare in St. Louis and give every dog the individualized attention they need and deserve for as long as it takes. If you would like to discuss this more or have property you'd like to donate, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
