Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Vision: We envision a world in which no healthy, adoptable animal has to be euthanized. Every pet will be well cared for and loved. None shall be abused or neglected.
Goal: To end the overpopulation of domesticated dogs and cats in the High Desert.
Objective: To eventually provide a facility with low cost neuter services, vaccines and micro-chipping. At the present time we aim to promote spay and neuter of animals, preventing the birth of potentially hundreds of thousands more animals who will most likely be abandoned. To encourage new local ordinances to prevent irresponsible ownership and breeding. To encourage responsible pet guardianship to decrease abandonment and relinquishment of pets.
In addition North Star Pet Assistance hopes to set an example on how animal advocates can work together, and not against each other, to benefit the pets. We currently work in cooperation with over a dozen full breed rescues as well as local animal controls and both shelters (Hesperia and Apple Valley). We can provide dozens of references and maintain wonderful working relationships with local vets. We'd be happy to share them with you.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
