BrightStar would like to thank Pet Friendly for letting us have our Meet and Greets there every Saturday and helping us find loving homes for our rescue dogs.


We will now be having our Meet and Greets at Woofies Gourmet Dog Bakery at 5087 West Ridge Road from 12-3 every Saturday. We will be selling hotdogs, cheeseburgers, pop, and chips while we are there. Please come out and see our dogs that are available for adoption. If you are interested in a particular dog, please remember to contact their foster prior to the Meet and Greet to ensure that they will be attending.

"To foster an animal is a great GIFT and act of KINDNESS.


                The animals hold a special place in your HEART and you make


                a world of DIFFERENCE in their lives."

Please help us save lives and consider fostering a dog.
Contact Stephanie Porter at porters36@gmail.com for more information.


If you would like to meet a dog, please email their foster to make sure they will be attending.
