Our primary focus is on finding homes for animals in the overcrowded shelters of Brazoria County.
Gulf Coast STARS is unable to help with rehoming. The following resources may be helpful when rehoming.
If your dog is purebred or looks like they might be, try contacting a breed rescue organization. Many of these groups will allow you to post your dog’s picture on their website. Follow this link for the American Kennel Club’s list of breed rescue groups.
Interview prospective adopters on the phone before setting up a home visit. Ask for veterinarian information and personal references. You have the right to say “no” to potential adopters if you don’t feel like they are a good fit. If you are satisfied with the phone interview, set up a home visit at their home. Take the pet with you, and do not go alone. Watch how they and their existing pets interact with yours.
If the potential adopter rents, contact the landlord to make sure they have permission to have pets and confirm they have paid any required pet deposits before transferring the pet to them.
