The bluegrass bully rescue was founded just over a year ago and as abc 36's justin roth reports....the organization needs fosters now more than ever.

This is buddy... he likes to roll in the grass... and play like any other dog.

Buddy is one of many dogs currently with a foster parent but more fosters are needed.

Jeanna 04 "we need someone to open their home to let the dog stay there until they're adopted."

The bluegrass bully rescue currently has 16 dogs looking for their forever homes and are living with fosters.

Right says it's a big responsibility but can serve a dual purpose.

Jeanna 07 "if someone doesn't have a dog, that's a perfect place.

Because, if you're thinking about getting a dog this is a great trial period for you."

Foster parents have a delicate emotional balance...loving the dogs like their own...but knowing at some point...they'll have to give them up.

Jeanna 09 "sometimes fosters cry when their dogs leave cause they get so attached to them while they're there but then they're just opening a place for another foster so you're opening your place to save another life."

Right has six dogs of her own, many of them were rescues.

For her...the work with the bluegrass bully rescue is personal.

Jeanna 15 "so, seeing these dogs being pulled out of abusive situations and getting put into good loving homes really makes it all worth it.

Rescue is hard because you see dogs being treated like no one should ever be treated."

Tonight: partly cloudy, lows around 66 friday: partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorm, highs around 84 george wraps :adliboff: a dog rescue group in central c1 3 kentucky...that doesn't have a shelter...needs foster parents.

The bluegrass bully rescue was founded just over a year ago and as abc 36's justin roth reports....the organization needs fosters now more than ever.

This is buddy... he likes to roll in the grass... and play like any other dog.

Buddy is one of many dogs currently with a foster parent but more fosters are needed.

Jeanna 04 "we need someone to open their home to let the dog stay there until they're adopted."

The bluegrass bully rescue currently has 16 dogs looking for their forever homes and are living with fosters.

Right says it's a big responsibility but can serve a dual purpose.

Jeanna 07 "if someone doesn't have a dog, that's a perfect place.

Because, if you're thinking about getting a dog this is a great trial period for you."

Foster parents have a delicate emotional balance...loving the dogs like their own...but knowing at some point...they'll have to give them up.

Jeanna 09 "sometimes fosters cry when their dogs leave cause they get so attached to them while they're there but then they're just opening a place for another foster so you're opening your place to save another life."

Right has six dogs of her own, many of them were rescues.

For her...the work with the bluegrass bully rescue is personal.

Jeanna 15 "so, seeing these dogs being pulled out of abusive situations and getting put into good loving homes really makes it all worth it.

Rescue is hard because you see dogs being treated like no one should ever be treated."

Especially with the pandemic, we are their connection to the world, really.

Cody adams: tammy scott spent 20 years working as an occupational therapist.

Tammy scott: i noticed there was a lot of issues once they were discharged and we got them as well as we could and sent them home, they didn't get the followup care at home that they needed to stay home and stay well.

And they just would keep coming back and coming back to rehab for pretty much the same reasons, or reasons related to not having the support they needed at home.

Cody adams: for a little more than a year now, tammy has owned and operated bluegrass home services, a small business designed to make a big impact in lives of people in her community.

Tammy scott: the goals are the same to... well, as my son came up with the logo, enriching lives, that's exactly what we're trying to do.

Cody adams: it's not easy and she's not getting rich, but she says the career pivot is all worth it.

Tammy scott: i'm trying to make as much of a difference as i can.

My little company, trying to do as much as we can.
