How Can I Help?
I’ve always wanted to help a rescue, how can I contribute?
As with all rescues, STARS are solely run on donations by the public; dog lovers, and husky lovers alike!
As with donations, sponsoring a dog helps greatly with neuters, vets bills etc. Sponsoring a Star allows you set up a regular standing order, of a value between £5 and £30. By a simple click, you sign up with ease. This can of course, be cancelled at any time without notice if you no longer wish to make future payments.
Please see our Sponsor a Star! page for further information.
We also have an easyfundraising page! Just access easyfundraising; and do your shopping online. Each time you purchase something through the site you’ll generate donations for the rescue at no extra cost!
(If you can help with any of the below, please visit our ‘Volunteer Form’ page, found within ‘Contact Us‘.)
As a rescue that runs primarily online, without local kennels to assist in the rehoming and rehabilitation of the dogs in our care, we rely on generous people to open their homes, and hearts, to one, or many, dogs in need! Whilst fostering, all vets bills etc will be covered by the rescue (where approved). All that we ask is you treat the dog as if it was your own, give them a loving temporary home, and give us regular updates on how they’re progressing. In return, we’ll offer you on hand support, whenever you need it!
Please complete our homecheck form if you are interested in fostering.
As with all rescues, our end goal is to rescue a dog, assess it, and once prepared, have it adopted to a loving, forever home. We guarantee a full assessment of the behaviour, character of the dog, prior to adoption; and the dog will be suited to your home. For instance, if the dog has not been assessed around children, we would not allow adoption to a home with young children; but would instead find a more suitable dog. The adoption donation is £200, but this alone will not cover the to rescue and rehabilitate one dog. Your loving, new family member will come with rescue back up for life, meaning that if your circumstances were to change in the future, the dog would always have a safe home back in rescue.
In order to ensure that we place our dogs in suitable homes; for the safety of all involved, individuals must undergo a homecheck. This is not to scare the potential new home, as the questions we ask are very much to ensure that the safety, and care commitments of all involved.
As mentioned above, as we operate primarily online, it is not uncommon for a foster home to be at the complete opposite end of the country from the forever home. As a result, we will do whatever we can to transport the pup to their forever home. Transporters are one of our most important people, as without them, we couldn’t get our dogs to their final destination.
