We first want to start by saying thank you for taking the time to check out the rescue dog campaign!  We are beyond excited!

We are raising funds to support the preliminary funding of a social enterprise business that will support rescue dogs.  With your help, we know we can make it happen!

Rescue Dog will be a resource for all things dog and the first of it’s kind.  The goal is to provide a modern and inviting space where one can comfortably bond with a furry companion.  We want to change how people perceive abandoned and stray dogs in need. We want them to feel supported and secure throughout the entire process. 

We believe an environment that ensures the comfort level of the potential adopters as well as the dogs during the adoption process will aid in having a positive experience for all.

Rescue Dog will provide potential adopters with the opportunity to meet with an expert dog matchmaker to assist in finding the right fit for the adopters lifestyle.

Once a connection has been made and an adoption is final, we want people to return to Rescue Dog to establish relationships with the staff and other clients.  We want this to be a community for dog lovers, where people and dogs will benefit from services and the knowledge of the experts, all in one location.  Rescue Dog would offer on site vet care that would provide DNA testing for each dog, full service dog training that would administer behavioral assessment tests for each dog along with certification, a grooming spa where dogs of all shapes and sizes could indulge in an all natural head to paw treatment as well as slumber parties for doggies who would need overnight care.

Taking into consideration the earth, the retail shop would offer organic, sustainable/ eco friendly and local products that would include anything from food and toys to bow ties and shampoo.  We would love to feature companies such as, but not limited to, The Honest Kitchen, Taste of The Wild, Ziwipeak, Bocce’s Bakery, Orijen, Stella & Chewy, Vaute Couture, Found My Animal, West Paw Design, Jax and Bones and Simply Fido.

Adoptable dogs in waiting to find their forever home, would have the freedom to run and play in the indoor park and when they are tuckered out they would cozy up in plush beds in a communal space dreaming of their human.

In order to continue efforts of rescue and give back, proceeds from the adoptions would be donated to a local 501c3 rescue group such as Social Tees Animal Rescue.

With your help, we can change the world of rescue while saving the lives of dogs in need.


Thank you!!!!

S.T.A.R. rescues, rehabilitates, and places over 3000 dogs, cats, birds, and exotics per year. All dogs and cats for adoption are spayed/neutered, tested, vaccinated, de-wormed, de-flead, de-mited, microchipped, and more. S.T.A.R. is especially known for its “Underdogs and Undercats” program, through which they find homes for many amputees and blind, elderly, and injured animals.
