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. Meet and adopt your new best friend 11 to 3 Saturday, July 15, in the Kirkwood Petco. We can also arrange meetings at other times. To see our available dogs, go Here.
The three dogs pictures above are three very lucky dogs. All came to us from local animal control shelters. They were either picked up as strays or surrendered by owners who could no longer keep them.
Now all three are together in one super home.
That's Arnold, the Chocolate Lab on the left. He was in St. Louis County Animal Control after his owner moved.
In the middle is Lexi, a lab/hound mix who came to us by way of Jefferson College Veterinary Vet Tech program. The college had pulled her from Jefferson County Animal Control to use in their training program. Next she came to us. Her first adoption failed, we think, because she was lonely without the company of other dogs.
On the right is Wally, who was a stray in one of the smaller Jefferson County shelters. He was dropped off at a veterinary clinic for euthanasia. The vet clinic staff called us about him. Wally is another one of those dogs who sometimes suffers from separation anxiety. He's happy now, though, with both human and canine friends.
These three didn't come to their joint home at the same time. Wally was adopted to this home originally with two other senior dogs, both of whom have since died. With each loss, the owners sought another rescue dog.
Wally is the oldtimer. Lexi arrived in this home a few weeks before Arnold. They are a happy bunch, and so are we.
We also received pictures of a couple recent adoptions: Fernando and Lilly. And here they are.
