Adopt a Dog from Stray Rescue of St Louis

At one time Randy Grim was a one man dog rescue operation with a mission of saving the homeless pets roaming the streets of St Louis, Missouri.  

After spending years prevailing upon his family and friends to place dogs he'd saved, in 1998 he founded Stray Rescue of St Louis.  Since then thousands of pets have been saved from abuse and starvation.  Since 1991, Grim has been credited with saving 5,000 feral dogs, all of which went onto to live in forever homes.  You can read more about Grim and the founding of Stray Rescue here.

Stray Rescue's sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health and place them in loving adoptive home.  Virtually all of the pets they save have been abused and neglected.  They've been dumped on highways or remote country roads.  They've been abandoned in public parks, empty houses and dark alleys.  They've also saved dogs left chained behind buildings after their owners had moved away.

Wabada is just one of the dogs available for adoption at Stray Rescue. On average, Stray Rescue has over 200 dogs and 100 cats on any given day that are looking for a forever home.  

Wabada is a female Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed dog who is about two years old.  She weighs 50 pounds and, as you can see, Wabada is a real beauty.  She originally arrived at Stray Rescue with an injured paw, but she's the picture of good health now.  

Right now she's in a foster home with other dogs, cats and a young girl.  She gets along with all of them and loves to run and play.  Wabada is house trained, as well as crate trained.  According to her foster mom, Wabada is a really good girl.  If you're interested in adopting Wabada, you can fill out a Stray Rescue dog adoption form here and her foster mom will be in touch asap.

Hot Dog is an 8 month old male Pit bull Terrier mix who weighs about 40 pounds.  He loves to play, especially ball.  Hot Dog is housebroken, already neutered and has lots of training.  He sits even without a treat, lays down with a hand signal or the word, sits before his food dish is set down.  He loves going for car rides and would really like a ride to a forever home.  

For more information about Hot Dog, fetch his information page at Stray Rescue.  He's currently at the Stray Rescue Pine Street Shelter and sure would like a loving family for Christmas.
