Stray Rescue believes that any animal which can endure the horrors of living on the city streets deserves to be medically rehabilitated and found a loving home regardless of cost. They operate two no-kill shelters and save approximately 800-1,000 dogs annually. Stray Rescue has cleared out entire dog packs in many St. Louis and East St. Louis neighborhoods. Stray Rescue’s mission is to lead the way towards making St. Louis a compassionate city where every proceed will go to the care and wellness of companion animals. Stray rescue looks for volunteers to help at the shelters so that funds received can be used directly for the dogs.
