rescue = a work of heart

Last week was an exciting one for BAHS.  Our animals have been adopted so fast recently that we found ourselves practically empty.  Knowing that many animals in the St. Louis metro area still need to find their forever homes, we immediately reached out to our rescue partners to see how we could help.

We ended up bringing 37 animals to BAHS last week- 23 in one day! Twenty-two kittens, five cats, and ten dogs are new members of the BAHS family.  This is three times our average weekly intake!

Our staff worked tirelessly to get these pets ready for foster homes and adoption.  Every animal that is adopted from BAHS gets vaccinations, a heartworm or FIV/FeLV combo test, dewormer, a microchip, any necessary medications, and is spayed or neutered. 

This is an incredible example of a community coming together to help animals in need.  A special thank you to our partners in rescue, CARE STL, Clinton County Animal Control, and St. Clair County Animal Services for helping us to save these precious lives! 

Thank you to the adopters who cleared us out and the fosters who have stepped up to help care for these animals. 

Thank you to Archford Capital Strategies for their Archford Angel’s project that is providing foster support, including needed supplies for the animals while they are in their foster homes.  And finally, thank you to Petfinder, for the grant that funded the intake of all the kittens this week.
