Sweet little Bella came to our rescue from a home where she was neglected & so frightened that she
​ ​
spent  2 1/2 years hiding under furniture.  She was so covered in fleas that she has several bald &
​ ​
scabby spots on her head and body
​.  She had​
 never seen a vet, had a bath or 
​shown the 
love & attention she deserves.  
That's all behind Miss Bella now, she's 
 the good life in her foster home!  This sweet girl is flea free, fully vetted, and healthy!, The bald spots are healing
​ nicely and her sweet and silly personality is shining through
!  She loves to play with toys, go on walks, and stands on her hind legs when she wants to be held!  
Currently Bella lives in a foster home with a lab mix, beagle mix, chi mix and gets along perfectly with all of them. She is crate trained, rides great in the car and doing well with potty training but will need her new family to be patient and remember that no one took the time to teach her until now.  She has also been around kids of all ages and has done just fine!

About Needy Paws Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Needy Paws Rescue, located in St. Louis, MO, is devoted to saving animals in need, whose lives are in danger at high kill animal shelters & animal controls, those who are strays, have been abandoned or whose family has faced an extreme emergency, regardless of their size or breed.

Our organization is made up of Volunteers who have been involved in various animal rescues in the St. Louis area and we plan to use our knowledge & experience to make a difference. We believe spaying & neutering is a very important step in keeping pets healthy & happy, plus it helps decrease overpopulation. All of our rescued animals will be spayed or neutered, they will be microchipped to ensure they are identifiable if lost or stolen and they will be current on all of their vaccinations before going to their Forever Homes.

We are foster-based and all pets stay in approved Foster Homes that have passed inspections, reference checks and are qualified to take care of our rescued animals while they wait for their Forever Family. We are dedicated to finding the best Forever Homes, and will be making home visits and conducting veterinarian checks & reference checks to ensure the pets will have a safe, loving, happy home. Forever Families will be taught how to care for their pet and learn how to get the most out of their relationship with their new family member. We also have an after-care specialist who will be in contact with the families after the adoption to see how well they're doing together
