I first became associated with STAR (Saving The Animals of Rowan) when someone near my home moved and left their dog. I would stop and leave food and water, however the dog was to frightened to come to me. Star had things well in hand and were able to rescue the dog. Later that year another case of a family moving and leaving a very pregnant dog made me think of STAR. I became a foster for STAR with the litter of 9 puppies, and their mother. Since then, I have had the honor of fostering hundreds of puppies and dogs for STAR. I am continually amazed at the dedication and hard work members are involved in in order to find rescues, transports, veterinary care, and adoptions in our small community. We have some of the hardest working volunteers I have ever know. I have now been associated with STAR for nearly four years now, and foster on a regular basis as well as participating in fundraising when ever possible. It is truly amazing the transformation you will see in dog that has been abandoned, or abused when they are given the opportunity of a loving family environment. I am very proud to be associated with STAR.
