Barktown Rescue is based out of Nelson County, Kentucky. We pull as many dogs as we can from 3 local high kill shelters. We work with the public to help them if they can no longer care for their dogs.

About Our Rescue Group:

Barktown is a place that no matter how small, every life counts. We are here to give dogs a second chance to find the love they deserve. We are advocates for the outcast, a voice for the unwanted. We are a 100% volunteer based rescue; where we rescue because it is our passion, our mission to saves lives. This is not a job for us, but a need to help the helpless.

If you are interested in volunteering for us and helping us out in the many areas we need volunteers, please email Nikki at for a volunteer application. There are many oppurtunities available!

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.
