Black Dog, Second Chance
We are a NO-KILL, 501 (c) 3 Rescue
|HomeAnimalsAbout UsContact Us|
Our MAIN MISSION is to find the right homes for the dogs in our care and match the best dog with the best family. We are a no-kill rescue with a focus on FORCE-FREE training; and dogs and cats that come in to our rescue, will eventually find their forever home After receiving proper medical care and training when needed.
BDSC takes pride in our rescue dogs and we focus on quality over quantity. We take our time with the dogs in our rescue- Dogs in our rescue are in our care for quite a time before they are even placed up for adoption to be sure they are disease free and we watch for any developing health problems that may have been missed by the vet the first time around. We allow a sufficient time for our foster families to get to know their personalities so we can best match them to their forever families. We are careful with our placements so our adopters are happy with their new furry friends. We would never just shuffle a dog off to a new home just to say we saved one.
Our adoption process- we ask that you complete an adoption application; we check vet references; we do a home visit; but there is a reason! We get to know our dogs well and want your family to be pleased with your new, happy, healthy friend so we are careful with our placements and our adopters are very pleased!
We don't operate a shelter, we place all of our pets in loving foster homes, so we don't have a shelter for you to come and view our dogs and cats. Because of this, we offer a monthly adoption event for you to come and meet your new special friend.
We pride ourselves with matching the best pets with the best homes. We are not a rescue who finds dogs for people, we find the right homes for dogs. We really want the adoption to work, FOREVER, so we are very careful about our placements, and because of that, we have a good reputation and little animal returns.
All of our dogs are healthy, spayed/neutered, vet checked, up to date on shots, microchipped and heartworm tested (when relevant), wormed and flea treated, temperament checked (by us, not a stranger) and come with all necessary paperwork and an adoption contract to prove it. They even come with a free first vet visit to get you on the road to good pet health. Some of our dogs even come with a free training class to continue the obedience they have already received while in our rescue!
All of our dogs are fostered LOCALLY with us, for a MINIMUM of three weeks, so we know that they are healthy and we trust their personalities.
In otherwords, you are getting what you are paying for when you adopt a dog through our rescue!
