A rescue in St. Louis received a heartbreaking letter from a dog owner, who lost their battle with cancer.
The Stray Rescue of St. Louis posted the letter on Facebook.
The rescue took the dog, named Shell, who had been adopted from the same rescue nine years ago.
The owner said that her "baby girl" needed to be taken into a home with one person.
Shell was taken in by the rescue's executive director.
