From Hao:

I will be moving to the Greenwich area in CT in September. Since I will likely be travelling a lot, I don't feel I am a good fit any more for keeping my dog Izzy. I am looking for a new home for Izzy, ideally closer to the Greenwich/CT/NYC area, so that I might still be able to visit her, but I am open to other options.

Izzy is a 6-year-old, spayed, 70lb Shepherd mix (her mom was rescued back from Afghanistan). We got her from a shelter 2 years ago. She absolutely loves both familiar and new people; she loves tummy-rubbing. She is very low energy at home and could sleep through the day when someone is around, but when outside she is also excited to explore. She can do basic tricks like sit, stay, jump, fetch, down, come, beg, roll-over, and play dead, and she does well with crates.

Since she has some separation anxiety and can howl quite loudly when left alone for an extended period, she would ideally live with a big or retired family who can be around most of the time and who doesn’t have other pets. (Hiking with her, for example, where other dogs are unleashed isn’t a good idea until she’s had some careful training.)

Izzy is spayed and up to date with all shots, but she has unfortunately been diagnosed with Addison disease; she has to be on lifelong medication, which could cost upwards of $100/month. She is a wonderful companion and would certainly earn her keep!

About North Star Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

North Star Dog Rescue is a volunteer-run organization, driven by a passion for providing the second and even third chances that rescue affords an animal in need.

We strive to provide rescued animals with excellent veterinary care, and with the help of fosters and volunteers, we are able to be able to find them loving new homes in New England.

Find out more about us at northstardogrescue.org!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since NSDR doesn't use a physical shelter, we don't have open visiting hours. Instead, approved adopters can visit with animals at the fosters' homes or a convenient meeting place.

We do, however, have meet-and-greet events once in a while. Keep up to date by checking our website at northstardogrescue.org and our facebook!

Our Adoption Process...

If you would like to adopt a dog or cat, please fill out our application, which can be found at http://northstardogrescue.org/adopt.html. Please be patient while we review your application. All dog and cat introductions will be done after your application is approved.

Adoption Fees:
The adoption fee includes transportation from out of state and pull fees from the original shelter, spay or neuter and vaccinations at one of our participating veterinary offices.

Cats: $85
Dogs: $275
Puppies: $300 (more shots are required)
*(Please note that the following fees are accurate in most cases but in some cases may change.)

Every penny we make in fees or fundraising goes back into the rescue. North Star Dog Rescue exists to help save animals that would otherwise be euthanized and to help them find the best possible forever homes.

If an adopter at any time wants or needs to give up their NSDR animal, we must be notified and will take the animal back.
