Star came to us after her family got divorced. She is a 6 year old dachshund Pomeranian mix although we've also had people say she looks like she might have some corgi in her. She was shaved down right before she came to us, normally she does have a long coat. She does get along with other dogs but prefers to be the dominant dog in the house. She is also fostered with a cat who she will bark at occasionally but she doesn't chase him and otherwise leaves him alone. She takes a little bit to warm up to new people but once she does she likes your attention. She does not need a lot of exercise, she is perfectly content going out to do her business and then coming in and taking a nap in her bed. She does walk well on a leash and she is fully potty trained. If you think you might be the perfect fit for Star, fill out an application today!

About Castaway Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Castaway Pet Rescue Inc. is a non-profit, foster-home based pet rescue organization located in Northeast Illinois. We bring homeless dogs into our network of volunteer foster homes (our personal homes) where they receive medical care and are given the chance to acclimate to life outside a shelter. Our foster homes aid in evaluating the personality and temperament of the dog to assist in providing the best adoptive home situation possible.

Dogs are generally taken from animal control shelters in our local communities, where they were going to be euthanized due to a lack of space. We look for dogs that will make good companions for their future families and deserve a second chance or, in some cases, a third chance before it is too late.

Our Adoption Process...

To initiate the adoption process, please complete the following steps:

1. Please fill out the form on our website to submit your adoption application. When you press SEND, the form will be automatically emailed to Castaway Pet Rescue, Inc.

2. One of our adoption counselors will review the application, check your vet reference, and reply back to you. We may have additional questions or require a home visit.

3. Once your application is approved, we will contact you to schedule a visit with the dog you are interested in. Please select a time when the entire family including current dogs can visit.

4. If the dog still has outstanding medical procedures to be performed, we will inform you at the time we schedule the visit with the dog. All dogs must be spayed or nuetered.

5. We prefer the adoption be completed at the time of the visit if you and the dog agree that we have a match. Please come prepared to take your new family member home with you.
