Pit Bull Terrier
Starr is one of our sanctuary residents

Meet Starr...


What can we say about Starr that could truly describe the kind of life she has lived except her life has been anything but easy! Starr and her babies found themselves in a city shelter and without much hope of a future. Without rescue they all would have been euthanized. Luckily Little Shelter stepped in and they made it to safety. Unfortunately Starr probably lived in squalid conditions before being abandoned in the city shelter and her pups were critically ill. 
Two of her pups died but the other 2 pulled through. Starr was a fantastic mom and her babies were very well taken care of. Now Starr is enjoying a life of leisure. She gets to spend her days living it up at our Sanctuary.
