RIVERFRONT TIMES PROUDLY SUPPORTS STRAY RESCUE OF ST. LOUIS BY DONATING A PORTION OF TICKET SALES FROM UNITED WE BRUNCH.
Virtually all of the pets we save have been abused and neglected. They’ve been dumped on highways, or remote country roads. Abandoned in public parks, empty houses and dark alleys. We’ve even saved dogs left chained behind buildings after their owners had moved away.
Rescued animals often make the best pets. Pets from Stray Rescue seem to understand that they have a second lease on life. In return for a little affection and attention, these remarkable animals reward their new owners with a love and loyalty unmatched anywhere.
