My story

Hi everyone! My name is Starlight. I came to Polka Dogz in very bad shape.  I had  a bad skin infection, demodex, and I couldn’t walk very well. All of that is behind me now. Since demodex is more common in puppies, the rescue ran some tests and found out that I have Cushings. I am on meds for my Cushings as well as for my arthritis. The Cushings meds cost about $60 a month if you get them filled from an online pharmacy. I will need to be on my medication for the rest of my life. So that is my medical. Let me tell you about me! I am a senior girl and we are unsure of my age but I am probably between 11-14. I love to lounge around and eat. Eating is my favorite. I walk slowly but I do get around.  I can’t do steps anymore but I can sure move if it is dinner time.  I sometimes have to fuss at my foster mom because she is too slow.  I like to sleep in one of the many dog beds here. I am a very independent lady.  If you think you might be the home for me please fill out an application! Starlight  Please APPLY FOR Me  AT POLKADOGZ.ORG



PLEASE NOTE: All your current pets must be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention to adopt from Polka Dogz. We only adopt in Florida. All adoption fees go to help all the dogs in the rescue, some of which require extensive medical care. Thank you for caring for the greater good. Adoption fee is $150 and you can adopt me at POLKADOGZ.ORG

Additional adoption info

FIRST step is to fill out a pre adoption application (www.polkadogz.org). We check vet references, personal references and do home visits before adopting any pet. We also help match the right pet to the right home. All current pets in household must be spayed/neutered and on heartworm prevention (very important) Adoption fees help us support all the dogs in our rescue, some of which cost thousands in medical bills. Thank you for caring about the greater good!

Go meet their pets

Typically, meet and greets are done after the application is approved and the home visit is completed. We also bring our dogs to the occasional event. You can track our events on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/polkadogz/.

More about this rescue

We strive to educate the public on responsible pet ownership. We rescue many dogs with heartworms, injuries nad those who have been victims of severe neglect and/or abuse. Maverick is a perfect example. He is paralyzed and we work daily with him to hopefully help him walk again.
