If you’re reading this blog, you probably know about the great work being done by Sean Casey Animal Rescue and Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition. But did you know about Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue? It wasn’t until a recent trip down the rabbit hole on Twitter that I discovered this kickass organization with a great name and tag line- “saving badass dogs from idiot humans”.
Brooklyn Badass is made up of a committed network of fosters and volunteers that rescue sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from high kill, rural shelters in the southern United States. Once pulled from shelters, they provide dogs with veterinary care and transport them north to foster and forever homes. Since 2011, Badass has rescued over 600 dogs and placed them all in loving homes.
Betty, a 4-year old dachshund-chihuahua mix, is a Badass alum placed in a forever home in Park Slope. From her Facebook page, you can tell that her new family is crazy about her and that she’s loving life as a Brooklyn dog.
Badass takes the adoption process seriously in order to place each dog in a home where they will thrive. They hold weekly events at NYC Pet in Williamsburg, where you can meet rescues. Visit their website and Tumblr page, The Daily Badass, to learn ab0ut upcoming events and ways you can get involved in this awesome group.
