Prior to becoming a STAR volunteer, I read about their fundraisers in the local paper. I have been a volunteer now for about a year and a half. I had no idea how much work they do, or how many dogs they save prior to becoming directly involved in STAR. As a volunteer, I go to the local Canine Shelter almost daily to take photos of new dogs, evaluate them, and observe any physical problems that might need attention. Photos are put on Petfinder as part of the effort to find homes and rescues. STAR takes on the expenses of veterinary care of dogs in need. Members immediately step up to foster dogs and puppies that would not do well in the Pound environment. There is not a day that goes by without STAR helping animals in Rowan County in one way or another. STAR works diligently with the County to keep the shelter low kill, and assists the County in providing for the care and rehoming of homeless dogs. In addition to directly helping the dogs, STAR members are constantly planning and conducting fundraisers to raise the money needed to cover veterinary, transport, and other expenses. STAR is dedicated to helping homeless dogs of Rowan County!
