My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Star Saving The Animals Of Rowan Inc, Morehead, KY, USA
I learned of STAR from another organization who was requesting help with transporting a dog from STAR to them in Cincinnati, OH. From that point on I began following STAR through the United Rescues of Kentucky listserve, and eventually their Facebook page. I began fostering for STAR, and have been very impressed with their commitment to an awesome foster experience, as well as their dedication to seeing that all animals find a loving home. I cannot help but be impressed with their ability to get shelter animals out and into rescues or foster homes, keeping the kill rate at the pound extremely low. Their hard work and dedication certainly are obvious. The saying "When the going gets tough, the tough get going" certainly applies in the case of STAR!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
I have made many new friends through STAR. We occasionally have "Foster Mom" lunches, which is a great opportunity to meet others that foster and to build relationships while enjoying some great food!
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
I felt great for giving several dogs the opportunity to hang out with my family until finding their way to a rescue. Others were made whole again through the care and medicines they were given until they were healthy enough to move to rescue.
