Saving the Animals of Rowan (STAR) is a 501c3 non-profit foster-home-based dog rescue organization committed to improving the conditions for the abandoned dogs of Rowan County, Kentucky, USA. Our shelter building is where animals with secured rescue awaiting transport stay temporarily (typically less than a week). Some of our animals are in foster homes or boarding and all meetings are by appointment. Our members work to find safe and loving homes or rescues for dogs that find themselves in the Tri-County Animal Shelter in Morehead. STAR members are dedicated to reducing the number of dogs killed due to the overcrowded conditions and low local adoption rate at this rural shelter.
