PupStarz Rescue in New York City is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer-run animal rescue organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion animals. They focus on rescuing dogs and cats facing euthanasia at public shelters and in potentially abusive homes.
PupStarz Rescue has been saving hundreds of lives every year since their founding in 2015 by placing animals in foster care until loving forever families can be found. They're committed to the welfare of their animals by offering post-adoption support, such as positive training techniques.
