About Our Rescue Group:

Rescue BC is a multi-faceted, foster-based rescue. We only take animals on euthanasia lists. We vet them, get them healthy enough for adoption, alter them and place them in loving, forever homes. Every animal we rescue is vetted and tested according to veterinary standards, vaccinated, wormed, treated for parasites, altered and then placed for adoption.
We rescue from rural Kentucky shelters because those animals have no other chance of rescue. All county shelters in Kentucky euthanize for space, and many have kill rates over 90%. We have saved many animals from "death row" through the extensive foster and social networking-based work that we do. If you would be interested in fostering for us please email rescuebc@hotmail.com.

Approved adopters will be reserved time to meet with a pet. Our volunteers will introduce you to the pets so you can spend time with a pet. Please clean up after the pet you are visiting, and keep the pet under control at all times. Puppies and cats should NOT be placed on the ground.
If you do not have an approved application, visiting hours are after 6:30 PM.

Our Adoption Process:

The first step in the adoption process is to request an application from rescuebc@hotmail.com. Please allow 1-2 days to receive the application. Please be patient as we are 100% volunteer supported. We will need several days to make the calls on your application. The current pets in the home must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines and annual exams, and currently on heartworm preventative for dogs. You must be 21 years of age and gainfully employed.
Once you are approved, a volunteer will contact you and invite you to a Meet and Greet to visit with a pet. All our pets are fostered in private homes and only come to the event when they have a potential adopter.
Plan to spend 1-2 hours at the Meet and Greet. It takes time to unload our pets and give them an opportunity to relieve themselves. You will have time to visit with your pet to decide if this is the right pet for your family. You will be required to sign a legal contract and we will go over the medical records with you. You will be required to take your new pet to the vet within 7 days of adopting.
We charge an adoption fee for all of our animals. This fee varies depending on the vetting requirements of that particular animal. The adoption fee is cash only.
If you have any questions, please email rescuebc@hotmail.com.

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.
