South Texas Aussie Rescue (STAR), is

A Non-Profit Adoption Organization

Dedicated to placing Australian Shepherds in new loving, supportive homes. These dogs have previously been abandoned, neglected, or lived in a home that either cannot or will not keep them any longer. We foster these dogs and evaluate them. We take care of their medical needs and then diligently strive to place them into caring, loving and permanent homes.

Fostering An Aussie

One of the most rewarding experiences! As a foster home, one is able to see the transformation of a dog that has experienced an unstable, often neglectful background into a beautiful, well cared for Australian Shepherd.


Volunteers & Supporters

Our volunteers are what make this rescue group function. Without our foster homes and volunteers, we would be able to offer little in helping the Aussies in need. Our support volunteers are usually those who cannot foster but want to help.
