About Our Rescue Group:

Our goal is to care for our county's unwanted and abandoned animals and place them in loving homes or responsible rescues. We also hope to improve the lives of all of Rockcastle County's pets by improving education and promoting spay/neuter programs.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our animals are housed primarily in foster homes as we do not have a facility at this time. Therefore, animals can be visited by appointment at their foster homes.

Our Adoption Process:

Fees vary depending upon each animal's medical needs. Contract, including spay/neuter clause, required.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
