I am so proud to be part of this organization. Animal abandonment is REAL problem in this country and it leads to overcrowding at shelters and to senseless killing of otherwise healthy animals. STAR’s mission is to end animal abandonment. They work with many local rescue organizations and shelters. It is a joint effort. It can be done. Everywhere you look, you read something about animal adoption, people rescuing animals at high kill shelters, and people giving animals a loving home. It is amazing. Unfortunately, there are a lot of horrible stories too, BUT the word is getting out there – we are their VOICE and we need to do as much as we can to give them the love they give us so easily. I am so, so impressed of what STAR has accomplished already, in just less than a year of operations. I know with the public support, this organization will continue to do GREAT things for our pets.
