RADAR black border

Raising Aid for Dogs at Risk raises funds “to provide financial assistance for specific dogs in shelters. Our focus is primarily on smaller, overcrowded, and underfunded rural shelters that typically operate below the radar in Appalachia and the Southeast.  Our efforts are aimed at helping otherwise adoptable dogs in these shelters who are least likely to get adopted (older dogs, black dogs, special-needs dogs, medical-needs dogs), regardless of breed. We also help dogs who are on a shelter’s euthanasia list; these dogs have very little time. Rescue incentive offers of help are also made for shelter dogs.”
