There are thousands more dogs than homes, especially in Texas.
Dogs in our area are being euthanized by the thousands to make way for the
crushing tide of new dogs brought in. These are purebreds, mixed breeds
and puppies. Of course we must all encourage spaying and neutering. But
what about the dogs that are here today?
Circle Star K9 Rescue wants dogs to live. We believe that by offering
trained dogs, people will consider adopting more dogs into each household
AND the dogs that are adopted won’t lose their homes due to behavior
Who are you?
We are people who love dogs. We are owners,
employees and friends of Circle Star Pet Resort-one of the most progressive
dog training facilities in the country. We created Circle Star K9 Rescue,
a nonprofit division of Circle Star Pet Resort, to save dogs lives. We
serve North and East Texas. We’re located on a 100 acre working ranch that
is also home to Circle Star Pet Resort. We have members from all over
Texas and other states.
How does Circle Star K9 Rescue save dogs?
We take dogs that’ve come from the
streets or death row in shelters, from our partner rescues. Then we
place them in our training house with a professional trainer for our
Half Way Home Training Program. Many dogs have never been inside a
house before. We teach them basic social skills like house breaking,
crate training, not to chew things up, dig in the trash,
counter-surf, bolt out the door or jump on people. We train them to
walk pleasantly on a leash without pulling, sit, down, stay and
What have you done so
We’ve rescued, vetted,
trained and found wonderful forever homes for over 100 dogs.
