Save The Animals Rescue Society(STARS), Inc.

The STARS Adoption donation is $175.00 for all dogs

All STARS animals have been tested for heartworm and treated if necessary. They receive all the appropriate inoculations for their age, including Bordatella (Kennel cough). They are spayed/neutered and have received a thorough examination by one of our participating veterinarians. You will be provided with all the paperwork and shot records. We do everything we can to ensure you are adopting a healthy, happy animal. We do a home visit to ensure adequate security and compatibility, after your completed application is approved.

If you are approved for adoption, you will be required to provide heartworm protection for your adopted animal, and we will follow up to ensure that it is provided. Failure to do so nullifies the adoption agreement, and the animal must be returned to STARS.

Status: Adoption Pending


Name: Truman


Breed:  Shih Tzu


Color: Tri-Color


 Sex: Male

 Age: 6+ year

 Adult weight: 12 lbs.

 Other: Truman is a very sweet little Shih-Tzu male that came to us with extremely bad eye goobers, terrible urinary tract infection and a very lethargic nature, probably do to the extreme pain of his urinary tract/bladder infection.  Our vet told us that when his UTI was better, we would see a different dog.  She was so right on.  Truman is now a happy, affectionate little sweetheart that deserves a very special home. He is a little older so he is quieter and a lot less rambunctious than the younger guys. Truman has allergies pretty bad and needs to have his eyes wiped out everyday.  He enjoys a leisurely walk, instead of a run.  He also has some hearing loss, probably from the neglect he was subjected to in the past.  You have to raise your voice to get his attention. 

     A wonderful lady that was looking for a dog to soak up a bunch of lover she has for animal friends met our Truman and fell in love.  She listened to all his issues and said. "So what, we can work with him and make him an excellent little companion".  

Status: Available


Name: Phoebe


Breed: Shih-Tzu


Color: White & Gray


Sex: Female


 Age: Approximately 2 years


 Adult weight: 7 lbs.


 Other: Phoebe is an adorable little Shih-Tzu female that came to us after being shaved to the bone by the shelter folks.  She was found matted, filthy and full of bugs.  She also has an old eye injury that doesn’t bother her at all and it may or may not get better. As you can see, she is now a cute little rascal and will be absolutely gorgeous when she gets a full coat.  She weighs in at a healthy seven pounds and loves to eat, so we have to watch her diet.  She is a real sweetheart that gets along great with other dogs and loves to sit on laps and snuggle now and again. Looking for a new little girl friend?

Phoebes old eye injury caused her to get glaucoma in that eye and now it has to be removed.  Next month she will be our beautiful one-eyed girl.
