About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to focus on dogs at risk for euthanasia & 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% volunteer and foster-based dog rescue in Louisville, Kentucky. We rescue all breeds and ages of dogs.


Our Featured Dog


Female American Bulldog Mix

8 years old

70 pounds

You’ve come a long way baby! Meet Sienna.

From living 6 years completely outside, padlocked to a chain, having litter after litter, no vet treatment and minimal food to now living her best life.

This beautiful fawn girl is house trained and does not need to be crated. Sienna lives with other dogs and does well but she has mama-dog tendencies so she needs to live with laid back dogs. She would also do great as an only dog.

Sienna loves to go on daily walks but only in “good weather”. She wears a coat in the winter and does not do rain or extreme heat. Sienna loves car rides and does well out in public. She is an excellent snuggler and wants to be right next to you.

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.
