My story

Wheeler is being fostered in NC

Wheeler is deaf and has some vision impairment, but can see.

Wheeler has really come out of her shell! She loves running and chasing all of the other dogs. She bounces like a kangaroo when she gets excited! Wheeler will play fetch with you forever. She loves to get back scratches and will lay her head on your lap when she's ready to calm down. Wheeler is crate trained and will take her blankets with her to bed. She sleeps through almost anything, but can hear high pitched noises. She prefers to be around and see people and the other dogs at all times, and she lets you know that. Wheeler can never have enough toys! Every one of them is her favorite and she will collect them all. 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.
