Social Tees Animal Rescue (STAR) is a non-profit group that saves the lives of abandoned animals from shelters and provides them with a safe haven before placing them in forever homes.

All companion animals under their care are spayed/neutered, tested for any medical condition, vaccinated, de-wormed, de-flead, de-mited, and microchipped before being put up for adoption.

STAR takes pride in their “Underdogs and Undercats” program, through which we find homes for many sick, injured, special needs, and senior animals.

Community members who wish to help out the group can donate items such as dry and wet pet food, cleaning fluid, eco-friendly cleaning supplies, paper towels, pet carriers and dog crates, litter boxes, dog leashes and collars, and resealable plastic bags.

People can also donate financially via PayPal.

Their office is located at 325 East 5th Street NY, NY 10003 and they are open from 5:00 to 7:00 pm from Monday to Friday and 12:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

They can be reached through email at contact@socialteesnyc.org as well as through phone at 212-614-9653.
