  • About

    Starfish Animal Rescue is an non profit organization that is dedicated to saving animals from Kill Shelters and finding them good homes. There are many ways to help us save these pets, such as: Adopt a Pet, Donate, and/or Become a Foster Parent.
    We rescue dogs and cats out of 2 high intake high kill shelters in SE Kentucky and transport them up to groups that can offer them a second chance.

    Starfish Animal Rescue uses a targeted approach at rescue to totally transform an entire community.

    First, we helped set up their low cost spay/neuter program and worked with others to help educate the community about spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership.

    Then, we rescue as many available, adoptable animals that we can, donate supplies, food, blankets, etc. and do it again and again and again. Same community. No one else in the country is doing it and it has made enormous strides in only 4 years.

    Since 2006 we’ve saved almost 6,000 animals
    We make about 17 round-trips a year
    It is 1200 miles round trip
    It costs approximately $700 per transport
    Adopt, Foster or Donate today!
    We tripled the number of dogs rescued the first year and halfed the euthanasia rate
