In October 2012, Adoption STAR moved its headquarters to 131 John Muir Drive in Amherst, NY. The new facility is more than double the size of the previous office, and features a host of exciting new spaces. When visitors, clients and staff members enter the office they are greeted by a beautiful large “Family Tree” which is made of various metals on the main lobby wall, noticeable by everyone when they enter the building. This tree is not only a piece of art, but a lifelong tribute to how adoption begins with roots and expands through many branches.

You are able to sponsor leaves, acorns, stones or roots, which will be engraved with the message of your choice and placed on the tree. Your engraved sentiment will be life long and will be forever appreciated by Adoption STAR.

Your donation and engraving may be in memory of, in honor of or in celebration of, someone or something.
