Stray Rescue of St. Louis set out to help a fearful and trembling dog. A local coffee shop, Thomas Coffee, had set out blankets and food and made the rescue call.
It was an incredible effort to provide for a dog who didn’t trust anyone, but she now need more care…
Rescuers provided a soothing presence and let the dog know they were there to help. She is now safe and sound, ready to be placed in a foster family for a second chance at life.
She’ll learn how to socialize and what it’s like to be a pet there before finding her perfect forever home!
