Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Heaven Can Wait Animal Rescue, Inc.
is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the senseless euthanasia of animals annually in Kentucky.
We strive to be a leader in education and awareness of the principles of responsible pet ownership. Through sterilization, rescue and rehabilitation programs we hope to make a difference in the lives of the shelter animals.

Our mission is to be a half way house where we can help house the animals while they are awaiting rescues, or their forever homes.

HCW and our volunteers are diligently working with the local shelters and the community to control the overpopulation and suffering of Feral Cats, House Cats, and Dogs by offering affordable spay and neuter programs.

About Our Rescue Group:

Heaven Can Wait began it's journey of saving lives in October of 2010. 4 women, 1 dream, and mission of saving dogs. We all have volunteered in shelters and realized that shelter pets needed another option, because for most of them when their time was up, that was it.

January of 2012 we opened our "Lodge"(we call it that cause we DO NOT like the shelter word and we try not to even say it around our dogs). It's amazing, we try to make our dogs feel as comfortable and at home as possible. Because after all we are preparing them for their furever home.

We are a small rescue and we are so proud of all of the lives we have saved and are going to save....this is only the beginning. Also, we are helping our community become educated about pet care, spay and neuter, and what a shelter life can be for an animal.

Last but not least I have to brag about our volunteers, without them we could not exist. They are truly the backbone, they foster, help with fundraisers, network our dogs, and most of all have the same passion we do.

We are strictly a non-profit rescue located in a small southern Kentucky town. We survive off of fundraiser and donations. We decided early on that we wanted to keep all of our pups on a consistent diet all the time.

If you want to help this is a great way to help because the second largest expense we have is dog food. We feed Pedigree adult food, Purina puppy chow and who could forget about the Milk Bones!! Everyone needs to be rewarded right.

There are all kinds of ways you can help: Help network our pets for adoption, donate to the day to day use items such as:paper towels, bleach, Pedigree dog food, Milk Bones, dish washing detergent, laundry detergent, dog toy, collars, leashes, blankets, kundra beds, foster, ect.

Our adoption process is quite simple. If you are interested in meeting or adopting one of our pets, please fill out an adoption application for review.

We have several of our pets in foster care so we have to work around foster mommy and daddies schedules.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
