Let's Do This Together

Realizing that Hart County Kentucky lacks a shelter and care for lost, unwanted, abused or neglected animals, the people of this area have come together and formed Animal Rescue Kare, LLC.  It is our goal to build a shelter, to provide the necessary care, and to improve the quality of life for Hart County's needy animals.  Our efforts include a spay-neuter program, a pet fostering and adoption program, and much more.  We hope to strengthen the bond between people and their animals through education and example.

Pet Foster Families Needed for Temporary Homes

Sometimes pet owners must surrender their pets for various reasons, such as an owner's health concerns, moving to a new home that does not allow pets, or financial difficulties.  You can offer these surrendered pets a home until they are adopted.  Learn more by clicking below.

If you know of a surrendered animal that needs a foster home, or if you have a pet you can no longer keep, please call (225) 414 - 2765 and leave a message, or email us at art4hart@gmail.com. We'll do our best to find a good home for the pet.

Cats and dogs are now available for adoption through ARK's foster program!  Find the pet that's right for you on our Adopt a Pet page.

Now, through the end of May, cats are available for adoption for only $20!  Adoption fee covers spaying/neutering, shots, vet exam/care, and microchipping - a great deal! We have several kittens and two gorgeous cats available.

 Roxie and Rosie would love to be adopted together. Can you provide a loving home for these two beauties?
