Shelby Tilley, started this organization in early 2021, as a means to help provide love, shelter, and good health for street dogs, and local dogs in need. Globally, we’ve seen an increase in overpopulation in terms of street dogs since the beginning of the pandemic. Shelters both locally and abroad are overflowing with unwanted pets. With overcrowding in shelters, comes unnecessary euthanasia for many very well-rounded, adoptable pets. Our mission is to save as many dogs (and cats) as possible from unwarranted death.
Our Motto is All Breeds, No Borders.
What that means to us:
Animals' lives matter and we're committed to saving the lives of as many endangered dogs and cats within our means. Where they're located should never matter, an animal in need is an animal in need.
Our name is inspired by rock'n'roll intentionally. We are the underdog crew of humans, who've decided to roll up our sleeves and work together to make a difference - for the underdogs.
Since launching this organization, Bark at the Moon Animal Rescue has saved over 120 animals. This is an incredible accomplishment for a rescue that has just reached one single year of operating.
Our team has since grown tremendously, with over 26 team members, and tons of fosters, volunteers, and supporters. Together, we can make a huge impact for many animals in need.
1. All adopters must show proof of registration for obedience training before the adoption is finalized.
2. All pets in the home must be up to date on vaccines, sterilized, and maintained prevention.
3. All applicants must provide home photos, character references, and a vet reference.
4. If for whatever reason the dog or cat doesn't work out in your care, they MUST be returned to BATM.
