Nelson & Nash find their new family

S.T.A.A.R., South Texas Animal Adoption Resource, was founded in June 1988 as P.A.L.S. of Katy in order to help find homes for homeless, abandoned, or abused dogs and cats. In 1998, we outgrew out name as we had spread to help animals in Houston and surrounding areas, so we became S.T.A.A.R. Since beginning our operation in 1988, we have saved, purely through volunteer effort, over 3,000 beautiful cats and dogs.
