Meet the Fur-Ever Friends
Gloria was dumped by the side of the road with what appeared to be a cruel, amateur attempt to crop her ears. passerby saw the near tragedy unfold, scooped up the three month old pit bull puppy and brought her to Humane Society’s headquarters on Macklind Avenue. Because of her special spirit, the puppy was named Gloria, in honor of the St. Louis Blues Hockey team’s unofficial fight song.
Apollo arrived at HSMO as a hungry stray, suffering from a large painful wound on his chest. Weeks of careful wound treatments and antibiotics from HSMO staff combined with lots of TLC in a foster home helped Apollo heal. Sweet as honey from the day he arrived, Apollo now enjoys a forever home where he’s the center of attention.
The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force brought Frisco to the Macklind shelter when he was discovered by law enforcement during a police investigation. Frisco was underweight and suffering from mange and skin infections. He required weeks of careful treatment with several medications and special baths.
Thanks to a call from St. Louis County police, Frannie is alive today. Officers found Frannie wounded, covered in blood. HSMO’s Animal Cruelty Task Force rushed the poodle mix to HSMO’s Macklind Ave. Headquarters, where veterinarians found 19 stab wounds. Antibiotics, fluids, pain medication and surgery were all needed to give Frannie a second chance at life, so she could find a wonderful forever home.
When Miss Catty arrived at HSMO, our veterinarians discovered a tight rubber band wrapped around her neck, making it difficult for her to eat or drink. She was having trouble breathing, and she couldn’t even meow. Thin and dehydrated, she was given fluids as well as medication to ease her pain and fight infection.
