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.

Two wonderful women who founded AMA Animal Rescue have been helping abused animals.
Having volunteered in many animal shelters across NYC, AMA Animal Rescue founders, Mariya and Anna, wanted to get more involved. They began by raising money for the animals that lived in these shelters. When they began to do more hands-on work, they noticed how fast animals were disappearing from their cages. They found out animals in kill shelters are marked for death just to cut cost and save cage space. They couldn’t stand by and let that happen. That is why AMA Animal Rescue was born in 2013.
Today, AMA Animal Rescue is a dedicated team of four young women who, with the help of volunteers, continue AMA’s original mission of rescuing and rehabilitating helpless stray and kill shelter animals. To date, they have rescued, fostered and adopted out nearly 100 animals. They are a registered NYC 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and rely solely on charitable donations to fund their work.
Their ultimate goal is to open their own no-kill shelter sanctuary so that they can rescue more animals under conditions most comfortable for them. Creating a sanctuary that meets their very high standards will make a greater impact in the quantity and quality of saving lives.
Meet Theo, pictured above:
Theo was viciously thrown out of the window of a moving car. One of their followers saw this kitten left to die on the street and contacted AMA right away. When they got Theo, he was in rough shape with matted fur and swollen eyes. They nursed him through an upper respiratory infection and serious flea infestation. Theo was such a charmer that the veterinary technician who took care of him could not resist taking him home, and soon after his treatments were finished she adopted him. Once seen as a burden and thrown away, Theo is now a loved kitten who brings joy to his home.
