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.

Reading the history of Stray Rescue on their website and seeing all that they have accomplished to help the unwanted pets on the streets, should cause anyone to want to jump in and help anyway that they can. Do you have room in your heart and home for one of these strays? If so, now is your chance to adopt one for a small fee of $14.00.

If you can’t adopt, but would still like to help, there is a donation button on the website. Any small amount will help to care for the 500 animals they have saved from the cold winter streets. The temperature is supposed to be in the negative numbers tonight with the wind chills. No dog or cat should have to endure that. Thanks to Stray Rescue of St. Louis, Mo several won’t have to.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis is located at 2320 Pine St. St. Louis Mo 63103 (314) 771-6121
