ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Offers of help are pouring in following Stray's Rescue public appeal for emergency assistance last week.

Shelter spokesperson Natalie Thomson says it's been a challenging year for Stray Rescue that has seen them take on a lot of added responsibility.

“Last year we voluntarily took on the care side at City of St. Louis Animal Care and Control, I don’t know if a lot of people know that, but we do all of the enrichment play groups and adoptions, we make sure all of the dogs there are clean, healthy and happy,” she says.

This weekend they participated in the nationwide Clear the Shelters event.

“Between City of St. Louis Animal Care and Control and Stray Rescue we had 49 animals adopted, 42 dogs and seven cats found their forever families,” she says.

On Tuesday night St. Louis-based comedian Nikki Glaser's hosting a show at the Funny Bone with all proceeds going to help out the shelter.

Donations of time and money are still being accepted - go to to help out.
