Our rescue is comprised solely of volunteers and we do not have a shelter.  Therefore, all dogs who come to NorthStar WI move in with and are fostered by our outstanding  and dedicated volunteers.  Volunteers make sure all of our rescues get  needed medical care and teach them the ropes of living with families – which can include children, other dogs, cats and lots of new living experiences.
