Each Wednesday morning, I walk dogs at Stray Rescue STL in downtown St. Louis, MO. The facility is full and the staff appreciate any volunteer help they receive to provide the dogs exercise, fresh air and TLC while their individual “apartments” are being cleaned.
Here are the five dogs I walked last Wednesday:
Each were a delight to spend time with and would be a wonderful companion dog for a “furever” family.
As I head into the facility this morning, I’m hopeful that one or more may have been adopted in the past week but I know the odds are not in their favor. As much as I’d like to bring them home, we have already adopted four animals and anymore would be too much at this time.
Fortunately, Stray Rescue STL is a no-kill facility so they will continue to receive food, shelter and daily exercise until, someday, a very lucky human will recognize the canine companion that waits for them.
Please consider adopting or fostering a dog from your local shelter.
Today’s haiku: Dog Walking
people come and go
but a dog prefers to stay
with you forever
