R.O.A.R. Squad: Britney and Johnny and their three cats and three dogs

Black Dog Animal Rescue founder Britney and the Original Black Dog, Kajsa

I am very pleased to introduce our latest R.O.A.R. Squad members: Britney and Johnny from Black Dog Animal Rescue!

The mission of Black Dog Animal Rescue is to provide quality placement and dignified sanctuary for homeless animals in an attempt to end the killing of healthy beings [via]. And just in case you’re wondering, “Black Dog” is only a part of their name- being a black dog is not a requirement to being rescued!

Read more about this wonderful family after the jump.

To learn more about the R.O.A.R Squad (Rescue Owners Are Rockin!), or if you would like to be profiled, all the info you need is HERE. A special shout out to the fabulous folks in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island and Idaho. These are the last states, provinces and territories we need-  we really need you!

Rockin’ Rescue Owners: Britney and Johnny Wallesch

The "kids"

Black Dog Animal Rescue: Britney is a native of Wyoming and Johnny comes from Texas. We run a rescue called Black Dog Animal Rescue, which is quickly becoming the largest private rescue in the state. We support No-Kill (link= more info on No-Kill) and are working towards creating No-Kill communites in Wyoming. Please come visit Black Dog Animal Rescue!

Three Gorgeous Pups: Kajsa is a 10 year old border collie mix adopted from Cheyenne, WY. Xander is an 8 year old rottweiler/collie mix adopted from Laramie, WY. Molly Sue is a 5 year old pit bull mix adopted from Casper, WY.


Three Gorgeous Cats: Forrest and Meadow, each sporting only three legs, and the orange tabby Tonka, who has feline immuno
deficiency virus (FIV).

The Original Black Dog: Kajsa is Britney’s first dog and her adoption changed Britney’s life forever. We call her the “original black dog” and her likeness is present in the rescue’s logo. Kajsa is considered to be co-founder of the rescue!

Where: Cheyenne, Wyoming
