Joplin arrived to Starfish in May and has been on a diet and needed some medical care. She is doing better now and needs a foster or foster to adopt that can take her to the vet once a month for a couple of months for her heartworm treatment. She also needs to stay on her diet. Joplin is a medium size dog, currently 60 lbs, should be closer to 40. She is very low maintenance, is happy with head scratches, loves meal time, and would benefit from a couple of short walks in the cooler part of each day for exercise. She does not care for cats. She has no other medical issues besides her obesity and heartworm, both of which she will fully recover from and will have several more years of love to share with someone. If you are interested in finding out more about Joplin, please email saradopt@gmail.com. All supplies and medical expenses are covered by Starfish.
Joplin, Labrador Retriever Mix has been shared from Shelter Exchange.

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 www.starfishanimalrescue.com 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.
