The move marked the end of an attempt by the city to replace its aging pound with a state-of-the-art shelter funded by donations.<br /><br />From that day on, Stray Rescue - a non-profit with 24 employees and an army of volunteers - cared for all but a handful of dogs and answered the city&#39;s animal control calls: all without taking a dime of city money.<br /><br />If you believe the city&rsquo;s health department, there are fewer strays on the street, and more dogs are being adopted. But there are questions about how long the success will last.</p><p> Thu, 07 Jul 2011 11:35:44 +0000 Rachel Lippmann 1584 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Stray Rescue reflects on a year as St. Louis' official dog shelter Animal House money now to go to Stray Rescue http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/animal-house-money-now-go-stray-rescue <p>In December, the<a href="http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/article_ed4bda5d-aca8-5857-97c7-9dc0744c4950.html"> St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote</a> that money collected via tax bills for a planned new animal shelter in the city of St. Louis was sitting in a special fund with no place to be used.</p> Tue, 15 Feb 2011 22:05:52 +0000 Rachel Lippmann 541 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Animal House money now to go to Stray Rescue
