Meet a wonderful organization that is helping abused animals “from idiot humans”.
Since March 2011, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue has rescued over 1300 dogs from shelters across the country. This non-profit, all volunteer network of rescuers transports dogs from pounds in the rural south, dogs that are on the ‘kill lists’ in high kill pounds. Some of those pounds practice inhumane methods of euthanizing the dogs. Some have over a 90% kill rate.
The loving people at Badass utilize professional rescue transporters to ensure that the ride up from these pounds to Brooklyn are comfortable and stress-free. The dogs are taken to foster homes for training and some get adopted. Badass takes meticulous steps to finding an appropriate match, including personal references, a vet reference and a home visit before they allow the adoption to take place.
In addition, rescued dogs provide medical care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, tests for heartworm and other medical services.
