My story

Sassy is a sweet 3-5 year old lab mix (vet estimates on the younger end). She’s a big girl at 73lbs, but thinks she is the size of a lap dog. Sassy loves her foster family and will push herself up against them or flip up their hand so they will pet her. She can be fearful of new people and is selective as to whom she trusts. She will require a patient adopter and will do best in a quieter environment without a lot of new people coming in and out. Sassy loves being outside and will sit by your side for hours. She is friendly with the resident dogs, but seems to prefer her foster family to the other dogs. She is doing well walking on a leash and likes to keep by your side. Sassy will be a loyal companion for years to come if you give her a chance

The adoption fee of $250  will include spay/neuter, microchip, age appropriate/required vaccinations, treatment for heartworm and any other necessary medical treatment to assure a healthy new pup for your family.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Although we do our best to describe breed, since our pups all come from shelters we can not and will not make any guarantee on breed or size. We can tell you that they are 100% RESCUED! And that is the BEST breed!

If you are interested in adopting/meeting , please complete our online adoption application that you can find here:  . Your application will be reviewed by our team and if it is a good fit, we will send to the foster family to set up a meet!

*please note that we are a foster home based rescue and we do home visits as part of the adoption process - we are unable to adopt to families who live outside of the Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Thank you for your understanding.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fees range from $50 - $450 depending on species,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. Cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and dewormed. We require an adoption application and a home visit prior to adoption.

We schedule meets with approved adopters only, so you must download our PreAdoption Application from our website at and follow the instructions to email it to us.

Go meet their 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.
