When the Stray Rescue of Saint Louis received a call, they had no idea the scale of the rescue they were going to attempt at the time.
It’s a tribute to these people’s commitment and the incredible strength of man’s best friend
Cassady, a member of the organization’s rescue team, received a terrifying call.
Given the circumstances, the group said the rescue was one they “couldn’t just turn away from.” Fifty dogs were in severe need of their assistance on a property just outside of St. Louis.
“Their owner died, and we’ve been informed there are dead dogs scattered about, many of which are being devoured by starving dogs.” “Many are pregnant as well,” read the description of one of their films.
With little food or shelter with no one to look after them, these dogs turned to extreme means to stay alive.
They arrived at the site and were taken aback by what they discovered.
The land is large and in some places is bordered by trees. A wire fence defines the boundaries of the land, but it offers little protection.
Garbage caked with trash was thrown over the ground. Clothing that is tattered, plastic bottles, boxes, metal pieces that might injure the dogs, pieces of wood, and other abandoned goods are among the items found.
The dogs were in fine condition when they came.
Neighbors took it upon themselves to feed the dogs as much as they could, according to the footage. Their situation, however, is far from perfect.
Their team got to work right once, but because of the property’s size and the quantity of dogs, they had to be smart.
Because the dogs would not come to them, they put traps all throughout the area. As they did so, they were met with horrific images that shook even the most tough of their forces. There are sad casualties, but they have taken all of them so that they can be properly buried.
Their initial traps caught 19 dogs.
Some are happy to meet them, while others are afraid. They are dogs of all types and sizes, but none of them appear to be aggressive; instead, they appear to be friendly canines searching for a new home.
The dogs arrived at the facility after a 2.5-hour journey. They were all terrified because this was all new to them, but with the help of the team, they were able to vaccinate all of the dogs they had rescued.
However, there is still a lot of work to be done. When they left with 19 dogs, they could still hear barking in the woods, so they returned to rescue the others. They were able to save seven more, as they stated in a previous post, and they will not stop until all of them have found new homes.
