BEST rescue organization…
Stray Rescue of St. Louis

St. Louis, MO 63104

Is a group of people tired of seeing the never-ending number of dogs wandering the streets. Many of their strays have been abused or neglected before they came to Stray Rescue. Founder Randy Grim can be found at night with a flashlight at hand driving around the streets of St. Louis looking for dogs. Their latest stray, Goldie, was thrown from a bridge into the Mississippi river. Stray Rescue has saved many dogs and found them new parents!
