STARescue is a registered charity working in the Basingstoke and surrounding areas to rehome small animals, ranging from cats and rabbits to ferrets, birds and any other small animal in need of our care. We’re still an active animal rescue and Shirley King has been running it for 20 years. Check out her story here.

To fund the work we do, and to pay for food and veterinary costs, we ask for a donation on all adoptions. If you’re looking for an animal to adopt, check out our gallery of animals looking for their forever home. Then call us on 01256 330532, or email us at info@starescue.info.

We also run a sponsoring scheme and are actively involved with fundraising events most weeks of the year.

To help us at peak times, we welcome help with fostering animals.
