PLEASE NOTE:It is STAR policy that, homes must have complete, visible fencing to be considered for adoption. Therefore, we are unable to assist in placing our dogs in homes with an invisible or no fencing. PLEASE NOTE:At this time, STAR has no foster homes for homes with Children less than age of 6 or No fence or invisible fence installed. Therefore, we are unable to assist in placing our dogs in homes with invisible fence. We sincerely wish our foster circumstances were different, but at this time, they are not. We only have the few foster homes that volunteer their time and expertise. Please be aware that we are always in need of foster homes, and continue to "lose" Aussies in the shelters due to lack of foster space. If you are able to help, please fill out a Foster Application to be a foster home!
