This week in St. Louis, Missouri, news broke of 5 tortured dogs found. Dead. The discovery was by Stray Rescue of St.Louis after a call about a dog hanging out a window. The area this happened in is littered with boarded up former homes/apartments. The pathetic playground of very troubled individuals.
The story of the dogs, along with the images, is on the nightly news and in the wires. I won’t go into details because I cannot. It brings me too much pain. But it can be read at the link above.
As dog lover, I will admit to feeling utter rage at the acts committed. And I pray those responsible are found and charged. And locked up, not just for what they did to these angels, but because what was committed against these poor animals exposes a nature equally capable of doing the same to a human.
Yet out of all this tragedy, human kindness rears its head. And its heart. And it is glorious.
Stray Rescue, out of their own strained coffers, was offering a $5,000 reward to help capture those responsible. Within days, that reward jumped to $10,000, with donations coming from around the U.S. and Canada.
Today, they received a 500 Euro donation from an animal organization in the U.K.
I revel in the animal lovers’ community, who opened their hearts and their wallets to help.
Overwhelming what people can do when they truly care.
Blessings to all.
