Review for Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Early last year, we had a very rough stretch - in about 5 weeks time, I had a co-worker and an aunt die of cancer. In addition, we had to put our beloved Lab/Husky mix Angie to sleep. A few weeks after our dog was put down, my sister, an officer of BDRA, sent us a few pictures of available dogs BDRA was fostering at the time. My wife chose an adorable little Aussie Shepherd named Innoko, who was being fostered in Delaware with his brother Jetson. Sadly, poor little Innoko contracted Parvo, and, fought with all his might, but, simply did not have the energy to win this battle. After everything else we had gone through, this news hit us very hard. My wife went down to Delaware to be with Innoko's foster mom when he was mercifully put out of his misery. After it was over, she went to the foster house to meet Jetson, and, after spending a few hours with such a happy-go-lucky goofball, she was smitten. A couple weeks later, Jetson came home to us, and his sweet disposition, combined with his fun-loving antics, raised the spirits of our entire house after a very depressing couple of months. Since then, Jetson has continued to provide us with plenty of love and laughs, so much so that over the summer, we adopted another blind/deaf Aussie Shepherd, a female named Rosie who is as mischievous and loving as Jetson, but more fearless. Through both adoptions BDRA was most helpful, providing us with all the information we could possibly need to raise a visually challenged dog. The work they do is amazing, and the time and effort put in by volunteers is just incredible. Rosie was transported from Missouri to Philadelphia over a weekend, with an overnight sleepover at a volunteer's house. They deserve all the help anyone who loves animals can provide.
