About Our Rescue Group:

Texas Star Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to the care and eventual adoption of dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who are no longer able to give adequate care to their pet. Texas Star Rescue has committed volunteers, foster homes and local veterinarians to love and care for the dogs while they are waiting for their forever home. Texas Star Rescue pledges to re-home our rescued dogs to carefully screened homes, to follow up with adopters by telephone or home visit and to educate and inform prospective owners on responsible pet ownership/care, including but not limited to spay/neuter, proper medical care and good nutrition. Our goal is to offer care and a peaceful living environment for endangered dogs until their eventual adoption.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are usually at Petco every weekend, but call for interest in specific events or if you would like to visit our shelter!

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process will start with the initial phone interview. Things that will be asked in this interview will include but not be limited to: Do you have a fenced in yard? Will you be leaving the dog alone for long periods of time? Can we contact your current vet?
The next step in the adoption process will be the meet and greet with the dog. During this time, you will also be asked to fill out an adoption contract if you do decide that you will be adopting the dog you have come to meet.

Our base fee for puppies is $75. This is to cover the costs of their vaccinations, and any visits to the vet.
Our base fee for adult dogs is $150. This is to cover the costs of their vaccinations, any visits to the vet, and the cost to have them spayed/neutered.
These fees will only go up if the animal was in bad condition when we got it. We have an expensive vet bill to pay every month!

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
