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.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
