Black Dog Animal Rescue


Black Dog Animal Rescue is Wyoming's largest all breed dog rescue and advocacy organization.

What sets BDAR apart is our unique vision for Wyoming:

We’re the only rescue dedicated exclusively to helping Wyoming’s homeless pets and Wyoming’s pet owners.

Clyde’s Fund: Providing medical care for homeless animals with extraordinary needs and for whom adoption might not be an option without medical intervention.

Dog Behavior program: Supporting dogs who require behavioral intervention in order to find a successful adoptive home.

Foster care: A program designed to increase the capacity of the adoption program by placing animals in temporary care in the homes of willing volunteers.

High-volume adoptions: A program designed to place as many homeless pets in dedicated permanent homes as quickly as possible, , thereby freeing up physical, financial, and human resources necessary to care for new incoming animals, or those requiring more extensive therapies prior to adoption.

Low-cost microchips: Affording people the ability to have their pet permanently identified in the event they become missing and need to be reunited with their owner.

Pet food pantry: Assisting members of the community with free dog and cat food and other supplies during times of financial hardship.

Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) program: Re-homing assistance for dogs who need not ever enter a shelter.

Welcome to Black Dog Animal Rescue (BDAR), Wyoming's largest private all-breed rescue! BDAR provides an alternative to euthanasia by partnering with shelters across Wyoming to transfer dogs of all shapes, sizes, and colors to foster care if needed. BDAR came into existence because of a strongly held belief by its founders. Namely, that no animals should be euthanized in shelters because of population restrictions or because of the length of time it may take to find a permanent home.

*Please Note: "Black Dog" is only part of our name - being a black dog is not a requirement to be rescued.
