    Comment:  A third and enthusiastic vote for Brooklyn Badass Animal Rescue!! Everything about the organization is thorough and thoughtful and designed for finding the right match, which is so important for both your family and the dog. Their community of adopters is so helpful when managing day-to-day needs (finding a vet, surprise behaviors or conditions, etc). It’s a rewarding experience overall.

    Comment:  I want to second Brooklyn Badass. As someone who spent years volunteering in shelters and as a foster and adopter it is very very hard to appreciate how a dog will be at home when you see him at the shelter. They can be in small cages and are extra energetic and anxious from the noise and lack of exercise .... they are not the dog you will be bringing home. It is a very overwhelming experience for you and for the dog you meet. As the previous poster mentioned, because Badass rescue dogs who then go straight into a foster situation you can get a much better idea of how that dog is in his day to day life. You can ask lots of questions that tbe overwrked staff and volunteers at shelters cannot answer in a way the foster parent can.Good luck in finding your perfect match! It’s an incredible, beautiful thing.

    Comment:  We got our fantastic mutt Leo from Badass Rescue. Here's what we really like about them: they take dogs from kill shelters in the South and foster them up here in peoples' homes. That means there are real people who get to know these dogs; when you go to a Badass adoption event, you can say "I need a kid-friendly pup," and people will actually know which dogs to introduce you to.Badass has a wonderful Facebook community too, where you can go for excellent advice and gratuitous pictures of cute dogs.Badass is a little more expensive than some other options, but we think it was worth it.

    Comment:  BadAss Brooklyn Dog Rescue. They're a grassroots organization that brings dogs on death row in Southern shelters to NYC for adoption. They do a lot of behavioral work with the dogs before adopting them out -- they partner with Eva's Play Pups (local dog walkers and trainers).(Reviewed Jan 2015)
