Welcome to Second Time Around Animal Rescue

About Us


STAAR is a no kill, all volunteer, non-profit animal rescue and adoption agency founded in 2005 for the purpose of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming stray and abandoned animals. We work primarily with cats and kittens, but hope to eventually be able to rescue dogs and puppies in the future. We show our cats and kittens in the adoption center at PetSmart in Mount Prospect, on Euclid just east of Elmhurst Road seven days a week. 

We do not have a physical shelter, therefore we depend on volunteer foster homes to hold our animals in their homes until they are ready for adoption. 


Check out our adoption link! 

We are looking for permanent, responsible, loving homes for our animals. Before considering adoption please make sure you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to your adopted pet and that you have the time and financial resources to be able to properly care for a pet.

Better yet, see us in person!

Please feel free to visit our cats & kittens, during normal business hours.
