Most people would be frightened if they saw a shadow moving across a cemetery at dusk. However, cemetery staff in Missouri were not, as they were aware of the source of the movement, even though they had recently received many new visitors. Recently, a small furry quadruped came looking for shelter.
The next day, they discovered that their visitor was a small stray dog. Her hair was almost gone and her feet were too sore to walk from blisters, so they contacted Stray Rescue of St Louis.
The lifeguard added:
“They go right under the fence and decide they like it because it’s quiet. It’s a huge graveyard, so they have plenty of space to get away from people.”

However, all stray dogs deserve a safe haven, so Donna and the cemetery staff immediately came up with an immediate rescue plan. They fanned out and searched the cemetery in an attempt to find the dog.
One of the search team members heard a noise coming from a bush and discovered the dog curled up underneath.
Immediately after finding him, Donna took him to seek medical help. The vet told him he had bad skin and leg sores, so he was treated immediately. They named him Kamper after one of the tombstones in the cemetery where they found him.
As soon as Kamper recovered from his injuries, Donna decided to take him to the cemetery to visit his rescuers.
“It was very emotional for everyone, especially for Kamper and the volunteer who called us.”
Kamper was delighted to see the cemetery staff again. He ran towards them and planted gigantic kisses of gratitude on their faces. The feeling was mutual: the cemetery staff were delighted to see him too!
After their emotional reunion, Kamper said goodbye to his graveyard companions. He returned to the refuge, but did not stay there long.
“The woman who called was so happy that we made it through and that she is doing so well. For our part, we certainly appreciate that she contacted us so that he could get some help.”
Kamper’s sweet personality soon won him the heart of a foster family, as well as medicine and baths to help his skin heal. His new dog brothers play with him as he waits impatiently for someone to adopt him permanently.
Finally, Donna said:
“It’s so fun to watch him play and be happy knowing he’s no longer a sick, scared dog trying to survive on the streets. Now he’s just becoming a puppy.
