Northstar Pet Rescue

In many areas of the country, especially in the South, the situation for animals is desperate: Chained outside and starving, homeless and running loose, or just simply no longer wanted and abandoned in an overburdened and underfunded facility that can’t possibly take another. For these animals, there is not much hope…except to look in the night sky for the North Star, their only way out. We are a group of passionate volunteers committed to saving these innocent dogs and finding them a new forever home. NorthStar Pet Rescue was founded in 2017, and although we might be a relatively new name among New Jersey animal rescues, you may recognize some of us from the work we’ve done volunteering with other rescues to help animals over the past decade. We are 100% dedicated to operating in an safe, transparent, and ethical manner and to ensuring the best veterinary practices are followed with regards to the care and transport of our animals. NorthStar Pet Rescue is IRS 501(c)(3) charitable organization (EIN: 81-5348036).

Meet Budukha TX

Meet Budukha aka Buddy, a 13-year-old male Dachshund who was surrendered to a shelter in Brenham, TX. We don't know why he was brought to the shelter - perhaps because of his owner's health? But someone who used to walk by his former home said she would see Buddy and his owner sitting outside. Buddy would always run up and greet the woman in order to get some love & pets. He is a very friendly little guy and he LOVES snuggling in laps! Buddy was much loved and spoiled in his previous home so we are looking for a new family who will treat him the way he deserves to be treated! Buddy is good with children and all people, including strangers. He does well with other dogs (he's in a foster home with lots of them!) but hasn't been tested with cats. He is housetrained, too. Weighing in at 16 pounds, he's a great size for every home! Buddy is just a great little guy who is going to be a wonderful companion for some lucky person or family. Buddy not only likes cats, he LOVES them. He keeps trying to wash my cat's face and he lets him do it for a while and then says okay I'm done. But it's been going on all day it's really funny to watch. He is just such a delightful little dog! Buddy has tested positive for Cushings Disease. NorthStar's vet has started him on medication for that & he will be retested in a few weeks to see if the dosage needs adjusting. If you'd like to bring this boy home with you, please complete an adoption application at and be sure to ask for him by his full name, BUDUKHA AKA BUDDY TX!

Adoption Process
Potential adopters will submit an adoption application. The adopters information will be screened including veterinary and personal references. After the first round of screening they will get the chance to meet the pet. If it is a good match, as deemed by NSPR volunteers, the adopter will complete an adoption contract and pay the fee of 375.00. All animals will be spayed/neutered and fully vetted prior to adoption. The only exception would be small puppies in which case the adopter will submit an additional deposit refundable upon proof of spay/neuter. In the event an animal is no longer wanted, the adoption contract will stipulate that the animal always gets returned to us, and is never sold, given away, or surrendered to another rescue or shelter.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
