My story

Atom is being fostered in Chicago.

Update 8/19/22

Atom is officially Blasto Negative!! He has finally cleared his infection and is doing amazing! He is such an incredible dog, with the most gentle and sweetest soul. Atom has adapted so well to being blind, you almost forget he can't see.

He loves to go on walks, play tug, and is the biggest cuddle bug you will ever meet. He is so patient and tolerant of everything that comes his way. All he wants in life is to be with his person and is equally happy going on a fun adventure as he is spending all day snuggled up on the couch.

Atom is the dog you have been looking for, and you could not ask for a better friend than Atom!

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 adoption@blinddogrescue.org.

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.
