S . A . V . E.

Adopting ONE animal from Kentucky S.A.V.E. saves THREE  lives:  

1. The forever friend that becomes a member of your family.

2.  Your animal's foster can now save another animal from the shelter.

3. The space the foster frees up at the shelter allows another animal to live until it can be adopted or rescued by Kentucky S.A.V.E.

Kentucky S.A.V.E. Rescue 

Kentucky S.A.V.E. (Saving Animals, Volunteering, Educating) is a non- profit 501c3 certified, no kill, animal rescue which is dedicated to caring, helping, training, and placing homeless, abandoned, abused, injured, and ill domestic animals throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

We are  a network of foster homes made up of loving, generous, and compassionate families. Because we have no facility, we are able to help animals by putting them directly into a home where they can begin to adjust to family life.  A foster can give you information that a shelter or breeder can not- we know how an animal behaviors, how they interact with other animals and people and how far along they are with potty and other forms of training.  When you adopt from us, you get a wealth of knowledge about your pet and an animal that is already on their way to adjusting to a wonderful, loving live with people and families. 


Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help even the smallest animal. 


Our adoption process ensures that all of our animals go to wonderful homes like YOURS!


Fosters are always needed to save more animals from overcrowded shelters.
