Simple Steps to Adopting a Dog at Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue’s Super Adoption Event
Pitbulls, and terriers, and labs — oh my! In a weekend long adoption event taking place December 12 through December 14, hosted by Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, people will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of mixed-breed rescued dogs to bring home.
Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, a non-profit, all-volunteer based organization, is dedicated to finding homes for dogs that have been rescued from pounds in the rural South. Since 2011, the “Badass Team” has rescued over 1,300 dogs from pounds in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky, which are known for killing most dogs at their facilities, and using inhumane tactics such as gas chamber killings.
In an effort to promote adoption and raise money to rescue and rehabilitate more dogs, the organization is partnering with Best Friends Animal Society to hold the longest and largest event since the inception of Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.
To ensure that the dogs find suitable, loving homes, prospective adopters are asked to fill out an application prior to the event.
The application begins with simple questions, then delves deeper into personal questions regarding past history of pet ownership and what the future may hold for the adopted dog.
To gain approval, one must meet certain requirements. According to the adoption policy on the organization’s website, “In order to adopt a pet, you must be at least 23 years old, be able to provide references and one form of government issued identification, consent to a home visit, pay the adoption fee and agree to all terms of the adoption application and contract.”
Upon getting approved, a person simply has to attend the adoption event at the Brooklyn Expo Center, where he or she will be able to choose the dog that they wish to bring home. There is an adoption fee of $450, which “covers vetting, boarding, spay/neuter (if over 6 months), transportation from the rescued kill shelter, collar, leash and Badass adoption package.”
Can’t wait for the event? You can take a look at the “Badass Available Dogs” photo album on their Facebook page, where many of the dogs that will be at the event are listed. *SPOILER ALERT* – They’re all really cute.
If you cannot attend the event, make sure to read the next follow up post, which will document what occurred at the event.
