Everyone who has seen the scared eyes of an underweight stray dog from Stray Rescue St. Louis has had their hearts broken. On Thanksgiving Day, a Good Samaritan observed the terrified puppy was unable to stand and rescued her.
The woman saw the dog on her usual walk. She saw the dog’s need for help and phoned Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
“This poor angel needs your prayers; we named her Hadley! She’s too weak to stand and has nearly starved to death. Hopefully we got her in time to turn this around,” the non profit organization posted on their Facebook page with the heartbreaking photos of the starving dog helplessly looking up at her rescuers.

The crew at Stray Rescue of St. Louis called the dog Hadley. At first, even raising her head up was difficult for her. At first, they only fed her extremely little bits of food. For the next few weeks, Hadley will be fed in this manner.
“Sweet Hadley, we’re so sorry for all that’s happened to you. Your anxious expression says it all.”
The team at Stray Rescue of St. Louis has been posting to Facebook to update followers on Hadley’s condition.
“This girl has broken our hearts. Just lifting her head up is completely exhausting for her. We’ll feed her very slowly, and very small amounts for the next few weeks, as eating too much or too fast is extremely dangerous. Sweet Hadley, we are so sorry for the hell you’ve lived through. Your worried eyes tell us everything,” they wrote.
Hadley’s current caretakers were concerned about her health when they first met her. She was so thin that she couldn’t stand or elevate her head, they said.
Poor Hadley almost starved to death.
“She’s too weak to stand and has nearly starved to death. Hopefully we got her in time to turn this around,” Stray Rescue of St. Louis wrote on Facebook.
Emily, a veterinary technician with Stray Rescue of St. Louis, has offered to take Hedley home with her. Emily will be able to provide Hadley with all of the love she needs and deserves.
“Hadley is heading home with our wonderful vet tech, Emily! She’ll be able to give her plenty of cuddles and the TLC she so desperately needs. We’ll continue to update you on her progress,” Stray Rescue of St. Louis wrote on Facebook.
If that kind woman who observed Hadley on her daily stroll, didn’t call the animals organization, the dog’s life might have been brought to an end. It would have ended in the most dreadful way possible.
Hadley was blessed to come into contact with a loving woman who took action.
She was soon taken to Stray Rescue of St. Louis, where she was met to more helpful and kind people.
