About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to save high-risk puppies and dogs in primarily Kentucky shelters. We rescue dogs at risk for euthanasia and those in need of medical care. We work to give them a second chance at a wonderful life. 

PBSF Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, 100% foster-based animal rescue in Louisville, Kentucky. We rescue all breeds and ages of dogs.


Our Featured Dog


Female staffy mix

3 years

45 pounds

Beautiful Maizey is a good girl despite the world letting her down in big ways in the past. Now she is looking for some humans to give all her love to. Maizey is a pro-level zoomer, a skilled tippy-tapper and butt wiggler, and loves to Netflix and chill — as long as she can cuddle with someone. Maizey gets along with other dogs and tiny humans. She’s not a big fan of cats.

Donate to Save a Life

Our rescue runs entirely on donations from generous and caring people. We are a volunteer-run organization, so every dollar goes to saving another dog’s life. Please consider donating to help us fulfill our mission. We are a nonprofit 501c(3), so donations are tax-deductible.

Adopt or Foster

About 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized every year. Yet, puppy mills and breeders continue to produce litter after litter. There is no excuse for buying instead of adopting when there are breed-specific rescues and shelters in every city. If you don’t see an adoptable dog here that catches your eye, please check other shelters and rescues until you find one. Plus, it will cost you a whole lot less!

Not ready to adopt? Have a little extra space and time? Become a foster! Our foster program is open to anyone in the Greater Louisville area who is interested in providing a loving temporary home to a rescued puppy or adult dog while they wait for their forever home. 


Contact PBSF Dog Rescue

We are a small team of volunteers, so please be patient as we work to answer emails. We do not have an intake facility, so we cannot take in owner surrenders or strays. To report a stray,  contact Louisville Metro Animal Services here.
