On Saturday, November 16th, some awesome musicians came together to play a concert at Brooklyn’s Union Pool and decided to donate proceeds from the event to Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. It was a night of incredible music, laughs, drinks and loads of warm support for Badass. We’re so grateful that people want to help celebrate our work and help us raise funds to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome more great dogs.
We’d like to thank Union Pool for hosting and Brooklyn Brewery for sponsoring the night. And of course - the badass bands who came out to play this rocking gig. Please use the links below to check out their music and say thank you for supporting Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.

If you have an idea for a fundraising event, or if you own a venue who would be interested in hosting, please email email@example.com. We are also on the lookout for vendors who may be interested in donating product for these events.
It’s that time of year when the weather gets cold outside and we move our adoption events indoors to keep all the pups and humans safe and healthy. Join us this Sunday, December 8th from 12:00pm - 2:00pm at My Two Dogs in Williamsburg. Meet great dogs like Machali!
Machali is an enchanting tigress from the wilds of Florida. We’re guessing that she’s a cur/retriever, though we believe that a creature this majestic can be only muttigree. She is approximately 1 to 2 years old and about 45 pounds, great with all people and good with other dogs.
If you are interested in adopting Machali, please visit our website to complete an adoption application.

Who’s that lady??
If you were browsing the December Issue of Oprah Magazine, you may have caught a glimpse of Badass’s very own founder Sara Alize Cross, who was one of the women profiled in O’s Glam Squad Fashion Makeovers - For Women Who Really Deserve Them. We’re thrilled that Sara got the glamor girl treatment and it couldn’t have happened to a more dedicated, hardworking Badass. And we’re in love with the stunning results!
Visit the website to check out Sara’s “before” photo and learn how she started Badass in her apartment in 2011 with just one dog. You can also see some behind the scenes photos, including Sara getting her hair colored by Beauty Expert, Ken Paves. We’re so grateful to Ken and the O Glam Squad for providing Sara with this beautiful holiday look!
If you’d like to make Sara and all of Team Badass’s holiday wishes come true, please visit our end of the year fundraising page. These last few months have been challenging as we’ve lost some wonderful alumni dogs, treated an entire cohort of rescue dogs for distemper and were overwhelmed when one of the dogs we rescued delivered a litter of 10 puppies! That’s a lot of additional mouths to feed and medical treatment to make sure mama and puppies are healthy and well-cared for. We know it’s a stressful time of year when it seems like dollars are flying out of your wallets, but anything you can give is greatly appreciated. A strong finish to 2013 will put us in good position to tackle a new goal in 2014 - to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome at least one dog for every day of the year!rescue, rehabilitate and rehome at least one dog for every day of the year! - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/other/badass-holiday-fundraiser/110638#sthash.rpF07FGJ.dpufPlease help Badass rescue, rehabilitate and rehome at least one dog for every day of the year! - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/other/badass-holiday-fundraiser/110638#sthash.rpF07FGJ.dpuf

Ruth Jamison is a Badass doxie mix from Selma, Alabama. She’s approximately 1 to 2 years old and weighs about 20 pounds. She’s sweet as pie and gets along with everybody, including other dogs, cats, and humans of all sizes. She likes to cuddle, dance, and happily wag her nubby piglet tail.
