Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Barktown Rescue is a foster based dog rescue in Nelson County, Kentucky. We do not have a facility or kennel. All of our dogs are in loving foster homes until we can find proper forever homes for them. We pull as many dogs as we can from a high kill shelter and try to find other rescues for the ones that we do not have foster homes for. We work with the public to help them if they can no longer care for their dogs. Since we have no kennel, the families that need to rehome their pets foster them.

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 Lisa at Lisamarie@barktownrescue.org for a volunteer application. There are many oppurtunities available!

Come Meet our Pets:

We are a foster based rescue, so all of our dogs are awaiting you in loving homes. Once an application is completed and approved, we can set up a meeting. You can also visit our website, www.BarktownRescue.org, or our facebook page, www.Facebook.com/BarktownRescue for the events where we will have our wonderful dogs at!

Our Adoption Process:

We do require an application to be completed. This can be completed at www.BarktownRescue.org. Once this is approved, we can set the applicant up with the foster to meet the dog. If the person decides to adopt at that point, we do have a contract that needs to be signed.

** Please note, we are a completely foster based rescue. It may take 2-3 business days for your application to be processed. Please let us know if you do not hear from us after that time period.

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.
