ST. LOUIS, April 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday, May 1,
Richard Thompson and his staff from Zootoo are coming to visit and judge
the enthusiasm of St. Louis and the needs of Stray Rescue's shelter(s).
Stray Rescue is putting on a HUGE pep rally starting at 9 a.m., to show St.
Louis has truly caught Zootoo fever and how badly Stray Rescue and St.
Louis needs this shelter makeover. The exciting event takes place at 2320
Pine St. Downtown near the A.G. Edwards/Wachovia Campus.
The Pine Street building was donated to Stray Rescue by A.G. Edwards
just prior to its merger with Wachovia. "It was a dream come true to
receive this 16,500 sq. foot building donated to us, but now we need the
miracle of Zootoo to build it out and the awesome support of the community.
It will change the landscape of St. Louis and be able to help the people
and their companion animals on a whole new level," said Randy Grim, Founder
of Stray Rescue.
Richard Thompson will be presenting awards to the city and Stray Rescue
during the press conference scheduled to start at about 10:30 a.m. Many
corporate and local dignitaries and celebrities will be on hand.
Stray Rescue wants all the wonderful animal lovers in the metro area to
come out and show their support, with or without their four legged friends.
There will be vendors, live music and a special gift for the first 500
people to show up and cheer Stray Rescue on. "If ever there was a reason to
take the morning off from work, this is one of them," said Stray Rescue
supporter Gayle Woodall.
Out of 970 shelters across America, Stray Rescue of St. Louis finished
second in the Zootoo contest with close to two million points. This made
Stray Rescue a finalist for the much needed million dollars for our city's
"We have one last thing we need to prove to Zootoo to win and that is
St. Louis is enthusiastic and needs the money for the animals, so I hope
the turnout is in the thousands!" Randy Grim said with a big smile. "Let's
do it for the animals!"
