dog-starDog Star Rescue, Inc. is a grass-roots effort started by a group of dog lovers with experience in the rescue world.

The name Dog Star comes from the common name for the star Sirius, reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (Greater Dog). The symbolism of the star as a guide to a safe passage is what they strive to do for their adoptable dogs as they find them a new life with a loving family.

They work closely with shelters in the South as well as the New England states to save the lives of loving and loyal dogs who have lost their way and find themselves on death row. Their volunteers get these dogs the medical and emotional care they need so they can transition into a loving forever home. They rarely accept dogs with special needs or aggression because most of the dogs we take in are placed in foster homes until they find their forever homes.
