Raise the 'Woof' Wednesday - Where Are They Now?


Pretend it says "Raise the Woof Thursday"

A while back I posted on Stray Rescue's Facebook page this collage I made of my friend Sandy's dog, Normm.  It got over 1,000 "likes." It may just be coincidence, but  recently Stray Rescue began a feature called Where are They Now?, before and after stories of severely injured dogs at the time of rescue and today in their new homes. I think it's wonderful!

Raise the 'Woof' Wednesday


How do animals in cities with temps below zero survive without someone like Randy Grim and Stray Rescue?
On Saturday night and into Sunday, St. Louis got 10+ inches of snow.  Teaming up with the Mayor, Randy made a plea on the news to bring pets inside.  Any pets found outside, even in backyards, would be confiscated and the owners fined. I think only a few people were given citations, but Randy and his staff were busier than ever rescuing stray dogs. On Monday morning the temperature was -8 with a windchill of -20.

Raise the 'Woof' Wednesday


The Stray Rescue staff started a wonderful system to track enrichment time spent with the shelter dogs to ensure each gets equal time. It's not a perfect system, since some dogs are more popular with volunteers and hence they have more "fans," but this way the love is spread more evenly as the staff fills in the gaps where needed.

There's a key for us to follow. W = extra walk / E = enrichment outside of the shelter (park, home, etc.) / CR = car ride / A = time in apartment / Y = play time in yard / R = run
The red colored marker is for volunteers and the black marker is for staff, but the red pen got lost and the volunteers started writing "vol" next to the letter.
Some dogs are not allowed extra enrichment for various temporary reasons.
