Getting adopted is one thing, staying adopted is another.

Holly, the dog who started it all.


Problem: There are thousands more dogs than homes in East Texas.

For instance 833 dogs a month die in Tyler-Smith County Texas with no chance of adoption. The SPCA of East Texas is working to build a facility that will be nicer for the dogs and open to the public so that the dogs will at least have a chance to be adopted.

Henderson County Humane Society has a wonderful facility but they face the same problem. There are still many more dogs than homes.

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?

Solution: 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 problems.

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 are located in East Texas (between Tyler and Athens) 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 on death row; attend to any health issues, spay or neuter them, give them all their vaccinations, test for heartworm and worm them. Then we place them in our training house with a professional trainer. Many dogs have never been inside a house before. We teach them basic social skills like house breaking, crate training, how to walk on a leash without pulling, not to jump or people or bolt out the door.

What have you done so far? We’ve rescued, vetted, trained and found wonderful forever homes for over 100 dogs.
