BECOME A FOSTER
Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Foster-based rescue's provide loving homes where animals can flourish as they await their new homes.
Most all our rescues come to us from shelters as strays and they will likely have worms, fleas, and ticks. We provide all the necessary medications and preventatives. We always advise keeping incoming fosters separated or crated (crate and rotate) while they adjust and decompress.
Many of these animals come from abused or neglectful backgrounds. That means they will most likely need some work with house training and exhibit other behaviors while they decompress and adjust.
Fostering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.
Please consider fostering. STAR relies on fosters to be able to help save lives. We are a foster based rescue, and we cannot take in dogs without a committed foster. Fostering is very rewarding. STAR provides food, supplies, and all medical care. You provide the safe home, love, and attention.
We RELY on committed fosters to help us save lives. When pulling a dog we ask that you commit to fostering them until adoption. We can never guarantee how long that will be.
