The Grave of Satan

Looking for the grave of Satan? Well look no further, Satan is buried right here in the Keystone state. In fact, he's been buried here since 1979. Lying nearby in the cemetery is also Muffin, Sparky, and Corky. There's even a horse buried nearby. So are these the hounds of Hell and one of the 4 horses of the apocalypse? Well considering they are buried in a pet cemetery, I guess it's plausible. Giving the good Samaritan deeds that take place in the nearby animal rescue mission, it's doubtful.

The St. Francisvale was opened in 1909. The founders, Dr. and Mrs. George McClellan had a soft spot in their hearts for pets. While driving home one day in a blustery snowstorm the couple spotted a puppy freezing along the cold streets. The family brought the dog in and named him Francis. Shortly thereafter they started the Vale and Rescue Mission.

They mainly do rescuing of dogs and cats, though occasionally they get horses and other animals. What separates this place from the other missions is their no-kill policy: they will take care of the creatures until they find a home. In this day and age of puppy mils and dog fighting, it's nice to know there is still some compassion for these unwanted animals, even ones named Satan!
