Meet Kip! Sweet little 9 lb Kippers is one of 5 puppies born to a gentle long haired sweet Mama (also pictured) who came to Starfish Animal Rescue when her babies were just a week old. Kip is playful and outgoing - he loves other dogs and will run around with anyone who wants to play chase with him. We think Kip is a Puggle/Doxy mix. He has little shortie legs! When he is sleepy, he loves to curl up in a lap or on a soft blanket. Kip is doing great with paper training and is starting to learn to go potty outside. Kip knows "sit" and will wait like a good boy for his treat. He is going to probably be on the small side of medium when he grows up and will make a fabulous forever pal to any family. Kip is super smart and should attend puppy obedience classes with his new family. Kip would be best in a family with kids 8 and older. Come and meet this darling boy today!

The adoption fee of $350.00 will include spay/neuter, microchip, age appropriate/required vaccinations and any other necessary medical treatment to assure a healthy new pup for your family. Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! Kip is being fostered in Aurora, IL.

If you are interested in adopting, please visit our website at Once you complete and submit your dog adoption application we will set up an appointment to meet this pup!

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.
