"Saving badass dogs from idiot humans."
Since March of 2011 our team has rescued over 1300 dogs from very high kill, rural shelters in AL, FL, GA, LA, NC, SC, KY and WV and found them all great forever homes.
Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit network of rescuers, fosters and volunteers who work together to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from pounds in the rural south. The dogs we rescue are in danger of imminent death as they are on the kill lists at very high volume, high kill pounds. Some of these animal control facilities use extremely inhumane practices like gas chambers and heartstick to euthanize the dogs and many have kill rates over 90% before rescues get involved.
When we commit to rescuing a dog, we make sure the dog is well cared for and properly vetted. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, test for heartworm, provide flea and heartworm preventative, and deworm at private vets local to the shelter they come from. We treat illnesses before adoption, most often heartworm, but have also treated parvo and distemper, and provided for necessary surgeries for dogs with serious injuries. The dogs stay in local fosters or boarding for at least 2 weeks or until they are healthy enough to travel. Then they ride up north with professional rescue transporters who make sure their ride is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
When they arrive, the dogs go into foster homes where they get training and experience living in a home environment before adoption. Some of the lucky ones even get adopted upon arrival! We want the dogs to be in the best possible adoptive home, so we are diligent in finding the right match. Our thorough process includes three personal references, a vet reference and a home visit.
As an all-volunteer, non-profit 501c3 organization, all of our resources go directly to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing Badass dogs. It takes a lot of money, time, space, and brainpower to rescue responsibly and we can use all the help we can get. If you can foster a dog, volunteer your time and skills, or donate funds or goods, please let us know. It takes a great community of dedicated people to save these deserving dogs and we welcome your involvement.
