Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are based in Princeton, KY and our animals are available for adoption to anyone who can provide a suitable home.

About Our Rescue Group:

SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia) @ WKCC (Western KY Correction Complex) is a program in which seven shelter dogs are matched with 14 inmate handlers for two months of training. They live with their trainers and learn how to be good companion animals. Since starting the program in March. 2011, over 80 dogs have found loving homes through this program. SAFE has also benefitted the inmates who have a sense of accomplishment for their part in saving the animals. We are told that morale in general has improved since this program began. Our group also fosters homeless animals and does everything possible to find them suitable homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

WKCC (Western KY Correctional Complex) is located at 374 New Bethel Road, Fredonia, KY 42411. We have graduation ceremonies for the dogs every two months. We also partner with Creatures Great and Small out of Paducah, KY for adoption fairs at Petsmart. We have several dogs in foster as well.

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.
