The Starfish Story

There is a man walking on the beach. In the distance he sees a boy throwing something into the ocean. As he gets closer, he sees the boy is surrounded by starfish that have washed up in the tide. The boy reaches down, picks up another starfish and throws it in the water. The man questions the boy, “Don’t you see how many there are? You will never be able to make a difference.” The boy picks up another starfish, throws it into the ocean and says, “I made a difference for that one.”

Adopt a Pet Today!

 

Starfish Animal Rescue is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals from Kill Shelters and finding them good homes. There are many ways to help us save these pets, such as: Adopt a Pet, Donate, and/or Become a Foster Parent.

 


 

Starfish Animal Rescue uses a targeted approach at rescue to totally transform an entire community.

 

First, we helped set up their low cost spay/neuter program and worked with others to help educate the community about spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership.

 

Then, we rescue as many available, adoptable animals that we can, donate supplies, food, blankets, etc. and do it again and again and again. Same community. No one else in the country is doing it and it has made enormous strides in only 4 years.

 


  • Since 2006 we’ve saved almost 6,000 animals
  • We make about 17 round-trips a year
  • It is 1200 miles round trip
  • It costs approximately $700 per transport
  • Adopt, Foster or Donate today!
  • We tripled the number of dogs rescued the first year and halfed the euthanasia rate
