FOSTERS NEEDED! Hey all! We are desperate for fosters in NYC, especially those who can take medium and larger sized dogs. By fostering, not only can you help save lives by offering a temporary home, you have lots of fun and look cool doing it! Case in point: Casey Novak (available) and her Badass foster mom, Deb!
Badass is an all-foster rescue network - we have no shelter in NYC. Our ability to rescue dogs from the South and bring them up to Brooklyn for adoption is entirely dependent on the strength and availability of our foster families. The more great fosters we have, the more dogs we can save!
If you want to get in on this (we know you do!), please visit our website at www.badassbk.com for Fostering FAQs and an application. Or, come by an adoption event and you can speak with one of our fosters about their experience to get your questions answered! Our next adoption event si tomorrow, September 21st at NYC Pet in Williamsburg. We’ll be there from 11:00am - 1:00pm.

In semi-arid California, droughts are common and major rivers are diverted for consumption in homes and on farms; therefore the habitats of various aquatic species are increasingly in peril. Nevertheless, I once met a California woman who flushes each individual facial tissue down the toilet, one every few minutes or so, when she has a cold—and with the tissue, gallons of fresh, clean mountain-river water. Recently, I saw a common grocery store sight: a shopper requesting that his two one-gallon plastic milk containers each be double-bagged in plastic shopping bags—even though the jugs themselves have handles.
