Providing care for your pet when you're no longer able to, due to death, illness, or extreme life events. 


PAFP is a foster-based, family-based rescue.  We are experts at placing pets in permanent, loving homes. 

We embrace the​ opportunity to:


-Serve as your pet's primary caregiver/custodian due to a death or disability

-Help make a plan for your pet for when you're no longer here

-Help you keep your pet, even during times of trouble or crisis or

-Assist with re-homing your pet if you're no longer able to provide adequate care for him or her 

Note: We help as many pets and people as possible, but are not able to say yes to every person that reaches out to the rescue (yet)! 

We ARE able to say yes to every pets-in-planning inquiry since those guys have a plan in the works,

and provisions to eventually implement the plan! 




    "The few and far between that include pets in planning, naming us as 'primary pet custodian,' along with associated provisions, are assuring not only that their pets go to loving homes, but that all pets we rescue go to loving homes. 

      -You make this work possible. 


    When you become part of the PAFP family, you're becoming part of something much bigger.

Jessica and I worked together years ago at Miami Dade Animal Services.  She was always passionate about helping as many pets and people as possible.

Since retiring from a job with the federal government, I volunteer-drive some dog-rescue-transport.  One day Jessica was the only person that could get a particularly-frightened and reactive boxer mix out of the van.  She's the real deal!

Jessica was so sensitive & caring & far exceeded our needs & expectations. Her desire to do her best for all involved gave us so much peace.

~Until the idea of including pets in planning really 'catches on,' we KEEP CALM and RESCUE ON... saying YES to as many families in need of our services as possible, AND by pulling at-risk pets from 3 state shelters (Louisville Metro Animal Services, Bullitt Co Animal Shelter and Oldham Co Animal Services) regularly.   

We place these lucky pets into one of our awesome foster homes, and find them loving, permanent homes. 

We've placed 200+ pets in loving homes from 2020-2023 alone!
