Our first transport was in November of 2014 after the death of Jayla Rodriguez. Dogs were being rounded up with a horse trailer to be disposed of, so many rescue groups got involved to help save as many of the gentle dogs as possible. We loaded our suburban to head to Hot Springs, SD to pick up a load of puppies from KC Willis of LightShine Canine. When we arrived we were nothing short of a hot mess, missing many of the necessary supplies, not quite sure how best to assemble kennels, and fumbling around with the dogs as we loaded them for their ride to safety. I remember feeling discouraged, like I had no business in the rescue transport world. I apologized to KC saying that they sent the “B-Squad” to work with her today. She turned to us and said that the dogs didn’t care that we weren’t the most organized transport in the world. What mattered was that we were there, doing what we could to help get them to safety. The name “B-Squad” stuck, and we’ve transported well over 7,500 dogs to safety since that time.
B-Squad Dog Rescue is 100% volunteer driven. All of our volunteers have full time jobs, we are hockey moms, photographers, dance moms, bankers, students, etc. We all have busy schedules, but find time to do what we can to help make a difference in the lives of others. B-Squad’s motto is you don’t have to be perfect to start making a difference today! We aren't professionals...we aren't the A-Squad... we are just ordinary people doing what we can to help make a difference. We are B-Squad Dog Rescue!
B-Squad has been assisting rescues on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Indian Reservations relocate the unwanted, abandoned, injured, or abused dogs to partner rescues in neighboring states. Since 2014, we have assisted in transporting well over 8,500 dogs to their new beginnings.
