Black Cats & Old Dogs Animal Rescue, Inc

We Rescue What Others Refuse

Board of Directors

President & Founder: Arianne Burley


Arianne began BCOD in January of 2015 after growing increasingly troubled after learning that most rescues were refusing animals because of breed, health, age, and temperament in the shelter environment. After watching many animals not make it out alive, Arianne knew she had to do something about it. She started BCOD and vowed to help those animals that other rescues had denied. 


Arianne and the BCOD team have found homes for nearly 300 animals in our first two years of operation!
