Sylvia's is a rescue established in 2008 which pulls dogs from high kill shelters in Kentucky. We have a small non public facility and most of our dogs go into foster homes until they find a permanent home. We have foster homes all over the south and northeast.
Sylvia's Animal Sanctuary was established in 2008 with the intent to save as many dogs and cats as possible from unnecessary euthanization in Kentucky. Sylvia's has since joined forces with three other Eastern KY rescues to help save more lives. Those rescues include Sadie's Place of Louisa, TRAIN of Paintsville and Hugs and Transports of Sadieville. The emphasis is on saving lives, but we also feel that education is a key component to reducing the pet overpopulation.
Come Meet our Pets:
Since we do not have a public facility we rely on our foster homes to post in their respective areas. Please contact Janell at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always willing to transport to the perfect home.
Our Adoption Process:
The adoption process begins with a simple application. It is reviewed by the foster home and by Susan. Follow up questions are asked and then a vet check is completed. At that point, a home visit is conducted and a meet and greet is scheduled.
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.
