About STARSupport Team Animal Rescue is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 Corporation created to address the problem of euthanasia of companion animals due to shelter overcrowding, medical and other needs. We work with shelters and other rescues and agencies to place animals in loving, responsible, forever homes.
STAR is an all-volunteer organization. Our business model allows us to provide for the special needs of animals who may not otherwise have a chance at a home due to injury, illness, or training issues. We receive no funding from any government or other agency. STAR uses the higher adoption fees from easily adoptable animals such as puppies or highly desirable breeds to help pay for the costs of treating those in need. When you adopt your pet from STAR you are also directly helping one or more other animals in our care.
How it works:
STAR obtains animals needing homes, places them in foster homes and provides for their care and medical needs. STAR is comprised of volunteer "foster parents" who care for the animal in their home and will feed, administer medicine, walk, train, and love their foster pet. When the pets are ready for adoption, STAR shows them to the public, and adopts them to suitable homes. For more on fostering an animal with STAR, see our volunteer page.
