Welcome to Best Friends Animal Rescue.

Located in Russellville, Kentucky, our main focus is the well being of our rescued animals. Our goal is to find them a loving forever home. 

As a non-profit in a small town, we rely on help from our community and friends. Best Friends Animal Rescue receives no funding from the city or county and depends on the generosity of people like you for support. If you would like to support us financially, please make a tax deductible contribution by clicking on the Donate button. Your donations fund spaying and neutering, medicines, vaccinations, and other veterinary costs of the rescued dogs and cats. 


We appreciate your support as we help the homeless and abandoned dogs and cats in our county. Please browse our site and if you have any questions contact us via our Contact Us! page.
