Star was found in a ditch by a canal in the street and rescued just in time. In foster care for a year now, Star is looking for her own forever family. This sweet, gentle girl loves to play with her toys, go for walks and snuggle up to her human. Because she was neglected and abandoned, she needs a home where she is the only female pet.
