Five Dollar Friday - Star's Journey to Recovery

Star, a 3-year-old Miniature Poodle, was signed over in the field to our Humane Officers in January of 2022. She was severely matted at the time and after grooming, it became apparent how severely emaciated she was. Star weighed a heartbreaking 7.51 pounds, nearly half of what she should weigh. We are happy to report that thanks to the dedication of our staff, Star is now a healthy 15 lbs! She is available for adoption and patiently waiting for her furever home. 

Now we need your help! Animals like Star require immediate and constant care, which can be expensive. Please consider donating now to our shelter so we may continue providing emergency care to animals in need. Supporters may also visit our Amazon Wishlist to purchase items for the HSVC.
