The dog days of summer are nearly at an end, however, the Stray Rescue mission continues. Due to the recent heat wave, the staff of Stray Rescue received an unprecedented amount of calls for abandoned dogs. As a result the shelter is filled to capacity, with animal rescues continuing on a daily basis.

Please help Stray Rescue of St. Louis as they offer shelter and a chance at a forever home for dogs that have been found in deplorable conditions, the victims of unspeakable acts of cruelty.
The Saint Louis University Museum of Art will wrap up their summer exhibit celebrating the work of Stray Rescue of St. Louis with a special event "Urban Wanderers: The Tail End" from 11 a.m-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28.
"Urban Wanderers: The Tail End" will offer a final opportunity to personally view the art that inspired area artists to paint, sculpt and photograph an abandoned pit bull. The rescued animals have used their paws, tails and noses to create "personalized" works of art. The artwork in the exhibition is available for silent auction at http://blacktiestl.com/auctions. All proceeds support Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
