Stray Rescue of St. Louis Mo. usually charges $100.00 for an adoption fee. That fee includes spaying/neutering, micro-chipping and training for a year. According to a Fox 2 News report, dated February 4, 2014, that price has been slashed to just $14.00 from now until February 15, 2014.
Stray Rescue is active on the streets of St. Louis, searching out abandoned animals, many of them hurt or abused. They take them in, tend to their medical needs and then work with them to make them loving pets that are then placed for adoption.
This winter has been hard on the rescue team and the animals they save, due to the harsh conditions and the fact that more and more pets are being dumped, or left behind. Randy Grim and his dedicated team fight the bitter cold in search of abandoned animals that are huddling in old buildings, behind trash cans, or anywhere they can to seek shelter from the bitter cold.
As the harsh arctic blast settles over St. Louis again and again, time is of the essence to get all of the stray dogs and cats to a warm shelter before they freeze to death. They even find Momma dogs huddling with puppies in an attempt to keep her babies warm in the frigid temperatures.
The more dogs and cats they find, the more they have to care for and feed. The weather is colder than normal, which means heating bills are up too. Everyone is feeling the effects of this winter’s fury. At the time of the Fox 2 News report, Stray Rescue was caring for 500 animals.
In an attempt to hurry and find these dogs and cats a forever home, Stray Rescue decided to slash adoption fees in the hopes that more people could afford to step up and offer these pets a forever home.
