About NorthStar WI

NorthStar WI was founded in 2013 by a few good dog rescue friends in Madison, WI with several years of rescue experience.  Specifically, German Shepherd Dogs, but with NorthStar, we wanted to broaden our range to include dogs of all mixes and sizes.

NorthStar WI is a 501c(3) non-profit charity and follows the guidelines of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture’s Division of Animal Health.  As of 2022, we no longer foster dogs.  We stay active by helping community members re-home their pets and raise funds for medical care for community dogs in need.
