Yesterday, Big Dog Ranch Rescue brought nine of dogs from the Redlands to safety. There was a litter of young shepherds living in a corn field trying to catch mice to eat. An old Mama living in an asphalt pile in a paving yard. A dachshund. And more.

While You Were Sleeping, Dogs Were Being Rescued

Tesla (Formerly Kasinda)

Date: August 24, 2015
It has been two months since my husband Diego and I adopted Tesla (formerly Kasinda) and we could have not been more delighted. In case you wonder, my husband - an electrical engineer - picked the new name to honor Nikola Tesla, the famous scientist who was also an electrical engineer.

Pawgust Is Special Needs Dogs' Month

Date: August 18, 2015
These dogs are more than special. They see the world as a place of opportunity, because they once thought such opportunities didn't exist for them. These dogs are unique, they are strong, they are fearless, they are optimistic, they are FUN, and they experience the world in a wonderfully different way.

Mia Goes Home

Date: August 4, 2015
Our darling Mia no longer cowers in the corner, trapped by a past of abuse and neglect. In the video below, she warmly accepts the tender touch of her new owner, Kelly, who has nothing but the best intentions for her inspiring, four-legged family member.

Mia Goes Home


Date: May 27, 2015
Thank you and your wonderful staff, especially Bridget, who professionally and kindly gave me the opportunity to adopt Chadwick- now known as Chazzee! We are so happy together and he has brought me and my sister so much happiness! He gets along well with our 2 cats and we are working on his slight separation anxiety which is quickly diminishing through our tender care & love! He loves our road trips in his new car seat, he has his own Adirondack chair, and stroller for long treks through art festivals- keeps from getting stepped on as he is so little- see attached photos. He is also my perfect Beach Bum and chases waves as we go for long walks. I have told everyone about BDRR and I know you will continue with your awesome successes! I already gave BDRR a great review on Facebook shortly after the adoption and will do more later. - Audrey
