Welcome to the Black Dog Club

Pet Rescue and Sanctuary

Our Mission

The Black Dog Club strives to provide rescue and rehabilitation services to dogs pulled from local North Carolina shelters. Our mission primarily targets black-colored dogs due to the cursed stigma known as "Black Dog Syndrome"; a statistically proven anomaly in which black dogs have the lowest rate of adoption across the country. That being said, we do our best to rescue any dog that needs help finding a fur-ever home, regardless of its fur color.

It is our goal to provide a helping paw for all dogs in need. We can not do it alone, however. Only the selfless help of people like you can help us rescue as many dogs as humanely possible.

How You Can Help


Become a Volunteer

Man the Front Lines

Our organization can only thrive with the helping hands of our volunteers. They are the secret ingredient to our success. Whether you simply like playing with dogs and helping them build up fun experiences with humans, or helping us maintain shelter property to allow us to keep rescuing more dogs; we have an opportunity for you. We are always in need of handlers, landscapers, bathers, trainers, play mates... the list goes on. If you want to help, download and submit our Volunteer Application. Join us on the front lines of rescuing helpless dogs.

Donate to Our Cause

Help us Save More

Due to us being a non-profit organization; funding the intake, boarding, and treatment of dogs can become quite difficult. This means that we cannot rescue as many dogs as we would like. Donations from selfless people like you are paramount to our success. With your support, we can continue expanding our efforts and save more dogs from death row. We also accept physical item donations. To inquire about donating physical items, reach out to us using our Contact Us page.

Prepare Our Dogs for House Life

We offer Fostering programs for those who qualify. If your application is accepted, you will be able to give one of our long-stay dogs the opportunity to know what a loving home feels like. You will help train them and prepare them for their future fur-ever homes.

If this sounds like something you would like to participate in, please download and submit our Foster Application.
