Happily Ever After

After many years of rescue work, we have more success stories than we could possibly share! Please enjoy a look back at just a few of our happy endings! 


Holly, The Girl Who Started It All

Here’s Her Story


Miracle came to Circle Star K9 Rescue with a disturbing and painful case of mange. After receiving intensive treatment, Miracle went from a shy underweight pup to a playful 50lb. girl. Circle Star K9 Rescue saved her life and she temporarily stayed at the resort while she awaited a loving home. She went through the full 30 day program before being adopted by her forever family! 


Boss, a one eyed male boxer, came to us with dog aggression and a lack of self control. He couldn’t calm himself and would get incredibly worked up. He was not comfortable being near other dogs and was in need of serious socialization. After lots of patience and consistency, Boss was not only able to interact with other dogs, but he was ready for his forever home! 


Willow came to Circle Star K9 Rescue as a semi-feral dog who needed to bond with a human in order to complete her training. Though she completed the 30 Day Training Program, she needed a strong human bond in order to reach her full potential. After finding her forever family, she acclimated right into life alongside her two big brothers, Cain and Marley.

Saving Dogs Through Intensive Training in North & East Texas


Every year over 4 million healthy, sweet natured dogs are euthanized in the US alone. Many more lose their homes to natural disaster, bad behavior, and lack of human commitment. We have learned that a well trained dog has the best chance of finding and keeping its home for life…and we have hundreds of success stories to prove it!

What We Do


Dogs are put through an intensive thirty day training program with a dedicated and skilled trainer. They learn to watch, sit, heel, stay, come, and lay down. They learn not to jump on people, chew or pull on the leash. 


Though training and exposure to a home environment is important, we never forget the often horrific things people have done to them. While they are here, they participate in a month of restoration, stimulation, and excitement. These guys get to swim, paddle board, enjoy massages, and much more. It is the soul-healing experience they need before entering their new forever homes! 





Here’s just a small sampling of the natural treasures we’ve helped preserve over the years.
