Fourteen dogs were saved on Wednesday by Stray Rescue Organization in St. Louis. No sooner had one of the most popular and beloved rescuers, Donna opened the door to her Jeep after finding one of the stray pups shivering in the streets, did he run right over and jumped in.

There was no doubt this dog knew he was safe, and so were the others lives rescued. In order to continue saving lives, foster homes need to be made available. If you are in the area and can make room for one of these needy pets, please contact StrayRescue.org/foster.
Becoming a Stray Rescue foster parent is one of the most helpful, heartfelt things you could possibly do for a homeless companion animal. As a foster, you provide a temporary loving home for an abandoned dog or cat until he or she finds a forever home. Many of those we rescue have lived difficult lives on harsh city streets, and fosters are essential to showing these animals what it means to trust, feel safe, and experience comfort. Whether your foster is with you for several days or several months, the knowledge that you helped immensely will last a lifetime.
If you have already filled out an application but haven’t heard back, we do need your help! Just follow up by emailing Christina@strayrescue.org
More fosters will help these rescuers save more lives off the freezing streets. Turning a dog away because they don’t have room would be devastating.
