Meet Paxton! Paxton is a sweet, gentle GSD/Collie mix who made the long trip from a high kill shelter in KY to a loving Illinois foster home. Paxton is about 8 yrs old and 70 lbs. He is a gentle, quiet boy who would very much enjoy just to hang out with you and maybe go on a hike. He is crate trained and house broken. We believe he was hit by a car in his younger years. He had a broken tail that has healed and has some arthritis. It doesn't stop him from getting around, although he isn't a jumper so he will need help into your car. Besides a nice long walk, one of his favorite things is lounging in the sunshine out on the deck. He would not be well suited for small children or overly active dogs, he prefers not a lot of commotion. He would prefer children over 8 yrs old that would be respectful and gentle with him. Paxton is fine with most other dogs and cats and loves people. He is just a big, sweet boy who cannot wait to find his forever family.

The adoption fee of $300.00 includes his neuter, microchip, age appropriate/required vaccinations, treatment for heartworm and any other necessary medical treatment to assure a healthy new pup for your family.

About Starfish Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Starfish Animal Rescue has been rescuing and transporting cats and dogs from two shelters in Southeast Kentucky. Since Starfish's conception, we have been able to rescue and transport over 10.000 dogs and cats. We are always in need of volunteers, and donations. All of our adoptable pups are in loving foster homes, preparing for their forever home.

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.
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 and download an application
Once your application is reviewed, we will put you in contact with the dog's foster family to set up a time to meet the pet of your choice!
Thank you for supporting our rescue and what we are trying to accomplish in southeastern Kentucky.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees range from $100 - $450 depending on age and breed. For dogs/puppies this covers spay/neuter, microchip, dewormers, flea and tick preventative, heartworm test (only over 6 months of age) and all up to date, age appropriate vaccinations. We require an adoption application and a home visit prior to adoption.
