About Our Rescue Group:My name is Margie and I am the President of Starfish Animal Rescue. Starfish Animal Rescue is a licensed rescue; I have been transporting animals out of a high kill shelter in rural Southeast Kentucky for about 5 years. When I started driving transport for the shelter in Harlan, Kentucky; they had a 95% euthanasia rate of all dogs and puppies. I was able to find a group that was willing to drive hours into the mountains to perform low cost spay/neuter for county residents. The shelter we work with applied for and received funds for low cost spay/neuter as well. Through these efforts and through working with some great local rescues (and not so local rescues), we have been able to decrease the euthanasia rate to below 10% this year! We feel that targeting one area and focusing on that one area will create lasting change for that area. We became an animal rescue because we saw so many great animals that were being overlooked and wanted to help them. We are foster based only so please consider fostering for us - it truly does save lives.
Come Meet our Pets:We are not a shelter. We are a group of pet lovers and advocates who are committed to targeted rescue. Starfish Animal Rescue is a licensed rescue that is run by an all volunteer staff. We will be filing our 501(c)3 non-profit application in 2012.
Once we rescue a dog or cat, it is placed in one of our foster homes until we are able to find it a suitable home. We are happy to set up an appointment to meet our pets once we receive and review your completed application.
We do our best to process applications quickly but please understand that we are a foster based rescue and that our volunteers work jobs; many are full time. Sending in a completed application is the best way to facilitate this process. You can go on our website www.starfishanimalrescue.com and download an application from our site or use this link: www.starfishanimalrescue.com/adoptionapplication.pdf
Once your application is reviewed, we will put you in contact with the dog's foster home to set up a time to meet the pet of your choice!
We appreciate your patience; we are all volunteers who have families and job of our own. Thank you for supporting our rescue and what we are trying to accomplish in southeastern Kentucky.
