HELP US!!! -- Join STAAR's effort to win $25,000!
S.T.A.A.R. is a no-kill organization. All of our pets are well socialized and given individual attention daily. They have play groups to run on a two acre area. We often find abused dogs who have become afraid of people and are skeptical of everyone. Through our volunteers' care and love, these once-abused animals grow into healthy, trusting companions, which we are then able to adopt out to loving families.
Although our efforts have had positive community response, there remains much that we have been unable to do. The minimal adoption fees that we charge families who adopt one of our pets, covers only the basic fees that we must pay to insure that the pet is healthy and non-reproductive. Many animals, after months on the street or due to mistreatment, often need more medical attention and personal attention than the adoption fee will cover. Our commitment and purpose is that we shall not euthanize any animal that has any chance of recovery and we adhere strictly to that policy. Many of our pets have gone through months of physical therapy to recover from injuries caused by abuse, but our reward is seeing them happy in their new homes.
