Take a look at Lullaby on her adoption day! It's incredible to think that just a short time ago, she was lifeless. The clinic couldn't get a temperature to read on her, and we thought it was hopeless. Then, she lifted her head and after that stood to eat. Then she started walking and learned the art of the belly rub. We nursed her back to health, and this incredible family came to get her!...

We would like to introduce you to a couple of true heroes!

Scott Westcott and his friend Larry Bommarito were taking photos in an old, abandoned building. That's when they discovered Hartwell, a female boxer in terrible condition. They knew they couldn't leave her there, so they found a rope to guide her out with. They had blankets in the car to lay her on and brought her straight to Stray...

Girl Scout troop 317 collected donations for Stray Rescue. Haley, Emmy and Riley dropped off the supplies. They even had to trek several blocks to get to the shelter because the roads were blocked off due to a parade. Now that's dedication!
Master G was rescued with Lullaby. This big sweetheart was adopted! They sent photos of him heading to his new home! We're so happy for you, Master G! You deserve this amazing life they are going to give you. Thank you for choosing adoption.
This is 5 year old Honeysuckle! This sweetheart has been waiting awhile for her forever home. She is pictured here at Happy Tails Pet Hotel and Playland, with lots of her dog friends! She'd love to go to a home that will take her there for doggy day care :)
