Our Mission

Black Dog Club provides rescue, rehabilitation, and training for dogs pulled from high-kill, rural animal shelters. We focus these efforts towards black dogs in an attempt to save them from the dreaded "Black Dog Syndrome." We also focus our efforts on dogs that have a low probability of being adopted straight from the shelter including pets that are heartworm positive, bonded pairs, and abuse cases. That being said, we open our arms to all animals regardless of species, breed, or color. We will provide a paw, claw, or hoof up to any animal in need.

Adoption Policy

Blackdog Club makes every effort to match potential adopters with a pet that shares similar personalities and lifestyle traits. We do not adopt based on looks. The first step in our process is a meet and greet here at the rescue facility. If you are adopting a dog into a home where there is an existing dog, we do recommend a formal meet and greet between the canines here at the rescue. Proof of vaccinations are required for any pet coming onto the property. We recommend emailing a copy of your adoption application prior to any meet and greet to expedite the adoption process. A vet reference is required prior to adoption. If this is a first pet, we encourage potential adopters to seek out and establish a relationship with a vet prior to application submission.
