About Us

South Texas Aussie Rescue, Inc. (STAR), located in Houston, TX,  is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) adoption and referral service dedicated to placing homeless or abandoned Australian Shepherds in loving, permanent homes.  All representatives and foster homes are volunteers - they receive no compensation and do it only for the love of the breed.

Due to the lack of foster homes with children or grandchildren, STAR is unable to place dogs in adoptive homes with children under the age of five (5). 

All Aussies available for adoption have been temperment and health checked, spayed/neutered, heartworm checked and put on preventative (and treated if positive), and are current on their vaccinations.  If a suitable dog is found for you to adopt, we do ask for a small adoption fee to help us cover any medical work we've done and to help us continue helping other Aussies in need.  Your additional donations and assistance are greatly needed as well and are very much appreciated!

 Help wanted !!!  STAR is in desperate need of foster homes.  If you think you can help us by keeping an Aussie in your home, evaluating and teaching basic house manners until it is adopted,  please fill out our Foster Home Application and send to Patti aussiesntx@yahoo.com.  Medical needs and back-up are provided by STAR.  All you have to do is add food and love.
