Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Washington DC

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 the animals there have no chance of rescue otherwise. All of the county shelters in KY euthanize for space and many have kill rates over 90%. We have saved many animals from "death row" because of the extensive foster and social networking based work we do. If you would be interested in fostering for us 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.
