TE-NYC and Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue Help Deserving Dogs Find New Homes

The Texas Exes braved the cold this weekend to help some deserving dogs find new homes at the Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue's adoption event. Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is an all volunteer 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. Since March 2011, the team has rescued over 1,000 dogs from very high kill shelters in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, and West Virginia and found them all "furever" homes.

After a briefing on how to ensure the safety and happiness of both dogs and volunteers, Texas Exes paired up with a dog and we welcomed potential adopters to the event. The noises and smells in New York City are new to the dogs and the city can be a scary place, yet our volunteers provided comfort. The volunteers spoke with potential adopters while also monitoring their dog for signs of stress or discomfort. Together we accomplished at least three adoptions today as well as getting applications started. We also sold some t-shirts (for both humans and dogs) as well as bandanas. Everyone seemed to truly enjoy the day and some very deserving dogs found new families (including Popeye, the super playful one-eyed pup). The room was full of smiles, tail wagging, and dog romping.

As an all volunteer organization, all resources go directly to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming Badass dogs. It takes a lot of money, time, space, and brainpower to rescue responsibly and help is always needed. If you can foster a dog, volunteer your time and skills, or donate funds or goods, please reach out to INFO@BADASSBK.COM.
