Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Anywhere
About Our Rescue Group:We are a non-profit group established in 2001 to rescue and rehabilitate animals on The Navajo Nation and surrounding areas. We wanted to do more than just feed the starving homeless animals. On the "Rez", towns are often 100 miles apart with nothing but desert and red rocks between them.
Many folks who live and work on the Navajo Nation are concerned about pet overpopulation and they're doing all they can to find medical care and homes for these abandoned animals. What our group does is help these kind people continue to keep helping the animals. Blackhat Humane Society has a network of foster homes throughout the Navajo Nation. Animals are taken into foster care where they receive food, vaccinations, medical care and lots of love. When the foster home feels the animal is ready for adoption, we post the animal's picture on our website www.rezdog.petfinder.org.
Our group cares mainly for dogs and cats but we care about ALL the animals and have helped horses, cows, goats, burros and hawks to find a safe haven. 98% of our money goes to veterinary care. Few animals receive vaccinations on the Rez, resulting in a high incidence of Parvo and Distemper viruses.
All Blackhat animals are spayed and neutered prior to adoption. Our group knows that education is the way to make changes and we have taken steps to provide programs and literature promoting responsible animal care to all ages.
In 2006. we found loving homes for 234 dogs, 48 cats ans 3 horses.
