This is Mac and Hunter ( brothers ) that were rescued just minutes before being put to sleep. An elderly man had taken them to a vets to have it done because he could no longer care for them. He didn't want them seperated and refused to take them to the shelter for that reason. The vet told the man about rescues and what they did and he agreed to let our rescue take them. They are two lucky little dogs !! they now live in Va. and have the sweetest mom and dad on this planet !!! They will be together forever, just like we promised.

Meet Sissy, talk about your rags to riches story this is it. She was rescued from the Animal Shelter where she had been picked up as a stray. She was a mess to say the least, and having a really bad hair day when we picked her up. She now lives in SC in the lap of luxury with her very own maid to do her hair, wish we were that lucky !!!
This is little Casey, he was rescued from a Back Yard Breeder. He spent 10 years in a crate and used to make money for this "person" (if you can call them a person) that refused to get a real job. Casey had no muscle tone in his legs and it was very hard for him to get around. He is now living the good life in Iowa, with his mom and his two Yorkie brothers, way to go Casey !!
This is Rusty, he was rescued from the animal shelter after he was dumped by the local Pet Shop that couldn't sell him during Christmas. Just so you'll know, the Pet Shop took in 10 puppies that day. Have you ever wondered what happens to the Pet Shop puppies they can't sell ?? Now you know. The three pups I was able to rescue that day all found wonderful homes, the other 7 are dead. I adopted Rusty, and he's now a member of my family.
This is Blue, my pride and Joy. He was one of the 3 Shelties I rescued from that awful breeder, along with Mollie and Lassie. I'm very happy to say that Blue is now the poster boy for East Kentucky Rescue and he's been adopted by the Hoover family in Zionsville, IN.

Izzy, named after hurricane Isabel, was found on the side of a road by some folks and East Kentucky Rescue was contacted about this little gal. We went and picked her up and it was instant love. She is one very lucky girl as she had several things that were wrong with her and left untreated she may have died. We got her to the vet and got things taken care of. Izzy was adopted by the Baltzell family who drove a long way from Indiana to get her.

This is Hambone. She was rescued from the local shelter. She is one very beautiful girl. Please visit her on our available page.
Bandit was rescued from a puppy mill, I adopted him too, some dogs just tug at your heart strings. He would have been deemed unadoptable by most rescues. It's taken me a year to earn his trust and me alone. After becoming friends with a lot of Sheltie rescue people, they would have put him down. He spent 5 years in a puppy mill and then sold to a back yard breeder that didn't change his lifestyle at all. I got Bandit when this breeder wanted rid of the Shelties so he could breed poodles, poms, and yorkies. Thank God this menace to society was brought up on charges of animal abuse and all his dogs were taken away.
