Every holiday season, their Muttcracker photos feature Saint Louis Ballet dancers in tandem with
adoptable dogs from Stray Rescue, a Saint Louis organization dedicated to rescuing stray animals in need
of medical attention, restoring them to health, and placing them in loving, adoptive homes.
All Muttcracker animals will be available for adoption. Featured photos of adoptable dogs with Nutcracker
characters will be posted at facebook.com/stlouisballet.
