Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

TWHRA is based out of Midway, KY, while our volunteer base is located in the Central KY area. Due to the high amount of intake the shelters of rural Eastern KY experience, we focus our efforts on saving the animals that find themselves in these shelters.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Way Home Rescue Alliance (TWHRA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit with the common goal of saving animals from high intake, high kill shelters in rural Kentucky that would otherwise be euthanized due to overcrowding . Being that we are a small group of volunteers, the main way we work to accomplish this goal is by networking the urgent animals in these shelters with rescues throughout the United States and even Canada. Our group then coordinates vetting for the animals and arranges transport for them to their respective rescues. When we have a foster home available, we will bring an animal into our rescue until they are adopted into a loving forever home. We also support legislation that improves on Kentucky's animal welfare laws, in addition to being strong advocates of spaying and neutering dogs and cats.

Volunteers Needed!
TWHRA is always in need of volunteers! There are several ways to volunteer your time to help the animals, including but not limited to:

1.Transporting animals (shelter pickups, taking to vet, taking to rescue)
2.Short-Term Fostering (fostering an animal for a few days to a few weeks until transport to its rescue)
3.Computer work (assisting with updating Facebook with the urgent animals at the shelter and sending out our daily e-mail blasts to our rescue partners)

If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail for a volunteer application!

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

If you don't have the time to devote to volunteering, but would like to help in some way, donations are a great way to do so. Donations are used by TWHRA to keep our operations going! Vet care for dogs/cats that arrive in the shelter with medical emergencies, gas/maintenance/insurance for the van we use to transport animals, supplies (crates, collars, food, etc) are just a few of the things we rely on donations for. If your prefer to send your donation by mailed check instead of Paypal, it can be made payable to TWHRA and mailed to our Treasurer: TWHRA, c/o Mary Pat Azbill, 144 Angel Spur Road, Berea, KY 40403. Please write 'donation' in the memo line.

Come Meet our Pets:

The Way Home Rescue Alliance is not a shelter with a central location. Our animals for adoption are all in foster care in the Central Kentucky area. TWHRA is open to out of state adoptions if we feel the applicant is a good fit for the animal. For more information on one of our pet's for adoption, please email the contact person noted in the animal's description.

Our Adoption Process:

Before you decide to bring a pet into your home, make absolutely sure that it will be a lifetime commitment. When our pets leave us we want them to go to their forever home. Pets are not disposable just because your life has changed.
By adopting a pet you are not only helping the pet you adopt, but also others needing to come into rescue.

To adopt a furry friend, an application must be completed and reference check done FIRST. Once approved, then a meet and greet and home visit will be arranged, and an adoption contract and adoption fee paid by the adopter.
To request an adoption application, or for any questions regarding the adoption process, please e-mail or .

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
