Axes Gives Back: Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Stray Rescue of St. Louis, MO teams up with Axes Physical Therapy

Ensuring a bright future for the underdogs.

Axes is a small, locally owned and operated physical therapy company serving our communities in the Greater St. Louis area. We’re fortunate to be able to offer our services at 20 locations, with the mission to help as many people as possible. Our profession is all about helping others and giving back. Through the service of physical and occupational therapy, we give our patients’ their livelihoods, lifestyles, and abilities back.

Since giving back is the fundamental reason that our organization exists, it was important to the ownership and staff of Axes Physical Therapy to make sure that we are doing all that we can to give back to the communities we love. In addition to our  “Wear Jeans, Change Lives” initiative that raises funds for a different local charity each month, Axes also participates in several physical goods drives. As a brand new initiative in 2024, Axes is supporting Stray Rescue of St. Louis. From now through April 16, all 20 Axes facilities will serve as drop off destinations for donations.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis is a place of hope for countless stray and abandoned animals living on the streets of St. Louis. Founded with the unwavering belief that every animal deserves a chance at life, Stray Rescue’s dedicated team works tirelessly to rescue those in desperate need, provide them with the care they require, and ultimately find them loving homes. Their mission is simple yet profound: to save as many lives as possible and to address the root causes of animal homelessness through education and Greater St. Louis community outreach.

Our collaboration with Stray Rescue of St. Louis reflects a shared commitment to compassion and community service. By transforming our 20 locations into donation drop-off points, we extend our hands to the helpless and offer our support to an organization that stands as a pillar of kindness in our community.
