Foster Dogs For ARTBAR! Fostering is what enables us to save more lives. We accept foster families in Mingo County WV, Boone County WV (near Danville), Logan County WV or Pike County KY. If you live near Danville WV, Lenore WV, Kermit WV, Williamson WV, Belfry KY, or Pikeville KY and can foster a dog indoors, please submit our  Foster Application. Your pets must be altered and up to date on vaccinations. If you are low income, we may be able to assist with that if you are approved to foster for us. We provide food and medical care for our foster dogs. You provide a safe haven in your home until they are placed.

Drivers needed (click this link)! Both local in southwestern WV and long distance (see map below for long distance stops).

Drive on Transports! Saturdays & Sundays along this route. Please submit the Driver Application if you’d like to help us move animals to our partner rescues.


Groom Dogs:  ARTBAR is currently seeking a local experienced dog groomer willing to volunteer your services for our rescue dogs. The closer you are to Williamson WV, the better. We often get in senior dogs and many of them are very matted. It would be wonderful to find a groomer nearby to help us get these dogs feeling better! If you can assist, please email us with your name, phone number, email address, the name of your business, and your location. If you have a website or Facebook page for your grooming business, please include that also. Whenever you groom a dog for us, we will put a thank you in that dog’s listing referencing your grooming business.
