ARTBAR, Inc. is located near the star in our logo. We rescue dogs in our general location, covering Mingo and Logan counties in WV and Pike County in KY. We do not rescue from long distances because our area is overwhelmed with strays, injured dogs, and owners requesting surrenders.
Most of the dogs we take in come from one of the shelters in our area or are strays/dumped. We do occasionally take owner surrenders, but there’s no guarantee we will have room. We are very short on foster homes in our area, but keep hoping that more locals and people who live near our vet in Lexington KY will step up and foster for us.
We are primarily a dog rescue. It is rare for us to take in cats, mostly because we have not been able to connect with many cat rescues and also because Jessica is allergic to them.
To donate money or supplies, please visit our Donate/Wish List page. Our mailing and shipping addresses are listed on that page.

For the safety of our foster families and rescue partners, ARTBAR only accepts dogs that have ZERO aggression issues and are good with dogs, adults, and children.
