Meet Our Team

Dedication. Passion. Commitment

This new chapter of Kentucky S.A.V.E. started with a simple helping hand. When former president, Ellen Banks, needed a place to help future rescues we opened our doors and were ready for anything. Then, when Ellen's life was ready to take on new a new chapter, we were ready again...and Kentucky S.A.V.E. took on a new chapter too! 
This new team is small but our hearts are big! We are dedicated to our community and ready to help as many animals as we can!

Her personal time, professional time, and free time is all for them. She is determined to provide a space that is safe and is as close to home as possible until each animal finds their forever home. Nothing makes Ashley happier than seeing a happy ending.

Mystic is a place of peace and a sense of home for the rescues entering our program, what they don't know is they are that same peace for her too!
