The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a not-for-profit dog rescue organization specializing in older dogs but taking in and finding homes for dogs of all ages...even puppies. We'll have dogs for adoption from 11 to 3 Saturday, May 18 and noon to 3 Sunday, May 19, in the Kirkwood Petco near I-44 and Lindbergh . To see which dogs will be there as well as other adoptable dogs, go Here.
I love all the pictures and messages I receive from those who've adopted dogs from us. The one above is of Skipper (Skip) and his best friend Amelia. I knew this adoption would work when I saw how gentle Skipper was with Amelia, letting her hold the leash while he walked slowly without pulling. I'm told the two are devoted to each other. When I first met Skipper, he was in a cage at Jefferson County Animal Control and was one scared little guy. How things do change and how we do love hearing about the dogs who've gone on to find homes. That's why we've scheduled our second adopter reunion for 11 to 3 Sunday, June 2, in the Frenchtown Dog Park at 10th and Emmet, three blocks from the Soulard Farmer's Market. Please come!
Our first reunion was heartworming and left us with a few lumps in our throats as we saw so many of the dogs who had once been our foster dogs. If you adopted from us, mark your calendar and plan to attend. We'll have lots of activities including food and drinks for human and canine consumption, off leash playing for well-behaved dogs, attendance prizes and and adoptable dogs. Admission is free. No retractable leashes, please. They can become a hazard.
The following pictures are just a few of our alums. This is Molly (then Honey) who was adopted 7 years ago when she was 7 years old. She is living a life of leisure and is shown here with her summer hairacut.
Next is Pickles,a senior lady who came to us from southern Missouri. She arrived with a severe skin infection, which has cleared up beautifully. In the care of her new owner, who is a groomer, Pickles keeps up appearances.
