Every girl deserves a chance to shine!

Star is a DIVA extraordinaire! This girl knows she's the and wants to make sure her forever family feels the same way. In other words, she'd prefer not to share her people, but instead to have the run of the house and all the laps to herself. Is that really too much to ask? Having said that, Star is currently in a foster home with several other resident dogs and she does quite well with them. She's still dreaming of a front door with her name in gold glittery letters on it, a single paw print stocking over the holidays, a gilded food bowl and a canopied princess bed monogrammed with her initials. Star has undergone quite the extreme makeover...she was super obese at 11.5 pounds when she came into rescue. Her dedicated foster mom has helped her all the way down to a healthy 7.5 pounds! Talk about a transformation; Star has a waist and can strut her stuff happily around the backyard without discomfort now. She will need an adopter who is committed to keeping her at this healthy weight longterm. Star loves watermelon, which happens to be a very low calorie snack for her and a great way to cool off in the summer. She'll come running inside when she hears a fresh melon being split in the kitchen. Star is a snuggle bug, but she bonds very tightly with one human and would most prefer a single human household. She would really enjoy riding around town in a doggy papoose close to your chest so she can explore but still feel safe close to you. If you can accommodate this diva, please let us know. Star has her agent on speed dial and is ready for your call!

About St. Francis Animal Protection Society

About Our Rescue Group...

In early 1971, Helen Galantiere had a vision; she was frustrated by the inadequacies and ineptitude of local and national organizations that claimed to be working in favor of the animals. She became a pioneer in animal rescue by starting one of the first 501C charitable organizations dedicated to educating people about the proper way to care for their pets, working to stop laboratory testing, and addressing the issues of overpopulation and crowded animal shelters. Incorporated in December 1971, The St. Francis Animal Protection Society was launched in 1972 as she worked tirelessly to place thousands of homeless pets, while writing a weekly column for the “Marin Independent Journal” titled “Animal World” educating the public on humane animal care. She touched the lives of many people and creatures; dogs, cats, and an occasional monkey or rabbit that came her way, and although her tough demeanor with people often left enemies along the way, she never relented on her quest to be a presence for the animals. On March 23, 2010 she passed away at home with hospice care at the age of 89. Her daughter, Caron, now runs St. Francis, continuing the legacy that her mother started forty years earlier.
