A pet owner dying from cancer reached out to Stray Rescue of St. Louis earlier this week in an emotional plea to help her find a loving home for her rescue dog.
Stray Rescue shared the letter so carefully and emotionally penned from Shell’s owner along with Shell’s photo. Her mother had adopted the dog nine years ago from the rescue and after her mother suffered a stroke and developed Alzheimer’s disease, the sweet dog came to live with her.
“Dear Stray Rescue,
I am writing you cause I need you to take my dog, Shell…I’ve been fighting cancer for a few months and if you’re reading this I lost my battle. I need for my baby girl to be taken care of in a home…In these days all I do is worry about what’s going to happen to her. I love this girl, she is my daughter.”
Shell is a very sweet girl. She’s been threw(sic) a lot, so she has trouble with trust in the beginning. She loves to cuddle but don’t like to be carried. She’s very small…”
Shell is safe with the rescue – no need to worry, but she needs a new home; someone who can give this angel a loving and secure future. In the meantime,
“Shell is now with us, safe and sound in our Executive Director, Cassady’s office. She is scared, but we will shower her with so much love. If someone has been lonely and would like to give Shell a home, with plenty of patience and understanding, please fill out an application.”
The woman was not named in the letter openly shared with supporters of the Stray Rescue of St. Louis Facebook page, but has asked for interested parties to fill out an adoption application.
No kidding – there are angels everywhere even among the tears so often shed for our companions who cannot speak for themselves.
