Black Dog Animal Rescue is Wyoming's
largest rescue. We are working together to ensure a better future for the pets and people of Wyoming.


Every year for 10 years, BDAR has stepped up for special pets who need medical care or accommodation in order to get the second chance at a forever home that they  deserve.

It started with a simple text from another rescue: “There is a disabled 4 month old Husky mix puppy in a Rapid City, South Dakota shelter. The puppy was born with deformed front legs, does not have use of either of them, and scoots around to make do. We can’t take him, can you?”  Read Sam's Story.


The mission of Black Dog Animal Rescue is to provide homeless animals across Wyoming with guaranteed safe and secure placement, promote the use of proven life-saving programs in our communities, and advocate for animal welfare.

Our adoption program is foster-home based, which means that all of our adoptable animals live off-site with a volunteer foster family. 




Meet our adoptable pets and make a connection.
