Christy’s Pet Project


“Christy’s Pet Project” is a weekly sponsored feature at noon each Friday during my show.  It will feature a “Star Pet” from one of many St. Louis area rescue groups, giving them a better chance at placing pets in forever homes.  Not only do I want to find homes for all pets, I want to encourage every pet owner to spay and neuter and join the fight in unnecessary breeding and unintended litters.  I’ve fostered and rescued several animals myself and have personally experienced the struggle for exposure and funding for small rescues.  The goal:  Forever homes for every pet!


This week’s featured pet for adoption:

Meet Ellie, a 1 year old cattle dog

EllieMeet Ellie, a 1 year old cattle dog. Ellie is great with other dogs and very gentle with the puppies in her foster home. A perfect home might be one that has a dog or puppy her size, 30 lbs or an active family with older children that enjoys exercise. Ellie even likes cats and kittens, although the cats may not always appreciate her fun loving spirit. Ellie enjoys long walks and playing ball and is good with the children in her foster home. Super smart, Ellie knows basic commands sit, down, paw. The sky is the limit with Ellie.

Adoption through St Louis Pet Rescue requires an application, vet reference and personal reference checks.  An adoption fee does apply.
