My story

Ryder is being fostered in MA.

Good w/other dogs
Crate trained
House trained
Food motivated
Needs leash training

Ryder is a very happy boy and loves to be outside, meeting new people, and other dogs. He can get very excited so may not be good with small children. He does need some work with walking on leash and has improved a lot since he arrived at BDRA. He is a good eater and drinker. He does listen well when given the opportunity to be off leash. He is food motivated which helps with any training.

Overall he’s very loving and eager to please. I think he’d make a wonderful addition to someone’s family! BDRA has voted against the use of electrical fencing effective immediately.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Interested in adopting a BDRA dog? Simply fill out our application. All of our adult dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive. All puppies are up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive. We ask a $350 adoption fee. This does not begin to cover the vet work we do on our dogs, which is why we are always fundraising! For unaltered dogs (such as puppies too young to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption), we now require an additional $100 spay/neuter deposit that is refundable upon BDRA receiving proof of spay/neuter and rabies vaccination.

Go meet their pets

Can I meet the dog before I submit an application? All of our dogs are cared for in private foster homes. We cannot make arrangements for private meet and greets until an application is received and references have been checked. That being said, many of our dogs are at local public events where you can certainly go to meet them. Will you transport the dog to me? What if I live in Canada? Generally yes, as long as you do not live more than 18 hours from a dog’s foster home. If you are unsure, please email

More about this rescue

We are a small group of volunteers spread throughout the United States (and even a couple in Canada) who are dedicated to advocating for blind and visually impaired dogs by rescuing dogs in shelters, helping blind dog owners, and educating the public. We formed in 2009, though our members have many years of experience in rescue, and in blind dogs.
