Due to COVID-19, we will not be holding our Howl-o-Wine 2020. However, we will have a week-long celebration beginning November 8th.
We love happy ending adoption stories, but we especially love receiving photos from adopters. These before and after photos are of Oliver, now Otto. He came to us emaciated and burned from someone likely pouring motor oil or kerosene on him (an old wives tale remedy that's supposed to cure skin conditions, but usually just results in burning the dog and melting his hair). You can see how "orange" he is in his before pics and look at him now with his new fur! Such a happy boy with a great new family!
Before we know it, 2020 will come to an end and for most of us, we'll be glad to see it go. However, the animals in our care aren't aware of COVID, the economy, or unemployment, they just care about a warm bed to sleep in, food to eat, and someone to love. Without generous donors like you, we could not continue to provide any of these things and we greatly appreciate your support in the past, present, and future. We know we can count on you to continue to help us make a difference and be part of the Starlight Outreach and Rescue team.

Speaking of transformations....
Autumn was found in a parking lot severely dehydrated and emaciated, crawling with fleas, and mostly unresponsive. She was about 7 weeks old when we picked her up and only weighed 10 ounces (about a third of what she should have weighed). With subcutaneous fluids, hand and syringe feedings, and a little TLC, Autumn now weighs about 32 ounces and continues to grow every day! She has an adopter lined up and will be going to her forever home next weekend.
Our cat bunkhouse got a much-needed renovation after a water leak caused significant damage in two of the walls.
Our cat bunkhouse renovations are finally complete and it was well worth the wait. Not only have we increased our capacity a bit and brightened the place up, but we have made it more healthy for cats and people alike. All that is left to do is to install our new light switch covers, hang some artwork, and we'll be all done...oh yes, and we also need to move the cats back in. Thank you to all who donated toward this project. We couldn't have done it without you.
We took in 3 major medical cases in September from Galveston County Animal Resource Center.
