Who Are We? 

Back In Black Dog Rescue is a licensed, 501(c)3 dog rescue founded in 2016, dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned dogs across the United States. Though many are not aware of this, black dogs are among the first to be euthanized for space in high-kill shelters in the south. This is known as "Black Dog Syndrome". Whether the lighting in the shelter is poor and hides that black dog standing in the kennel, or the "black dogs are cursed" excuse, too often than not, black dogs are overlooked for lighter colored dogs. We work with an amazing group of advocates, fosters, and veterinarians in the south, mainly Georgia, and rescue as many black dogs as we possibly can. All of our dogs are properly treated for any illnesses, spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped prior to transporting to PA where they are adopted into their forever homes.

We need your help!

Without volunteers, fosters, sponsors, or donations, we wouldn't be able to help the animals that we do.

We are currently seeking more fosters to show our rescue dogs what it is like to live in a home. Without fosters, we wouldn't be able to save the dogs from high kill shelters and bring them to PA. Interested in fostering? Send us an email at BackInBlackResq@yahoo.com.

Not able to foster? There are other ways you can help our rescue!

We are always in need of the following items for our dogs in foster care:

  • Dog food – adult and puppy food
  • Collars and Leashes (most dogs are size medium)
  • Dog Treats
  • Dog toys and bones
  • Dog beds
  • Bedding and towels – Can be new or gently used
  • Monetary donations for veterinary care and heartworm/flea preventatives
