Shop with GoodShop and help us raise money to support the dogs of Big Dogs Big Hearts

Not For Profit Organization

BDBH is organized as a not-for-profit New York corporation and is completely dependent on donations and adoption fees to support its activities. None of the volunteers with our organization are compensated employees.


BDBH is funded through the adoption/application fees and donations. Donations and adoption fees help to cover some of the costs associated with caring for the dogs.  As a volunteer organization that is funded entirely by donations, BDBH could not survive without the generosity of our donors. We feel that it is our duty to help those who cannot help themselves, and when there is a dog in need, we do everything in our power to come through for them! We have undertaken some severely diseased and injured dogs, and turned them around to become happy, healthy members of a proud new family. From mange, to systemic disease (parvo, liver failure), to severe birth defects and joint disease...there is rarely a condition we aren't willing to take on. These treatments are costly, but can you put a price on an innocent creature's life? We don't think so! Please consider making a donation to BDBH...your money goes directly to the costs that are helping save or improve the quality of a dog's life. 


BDBH has not yet obtained 501c3 status with the IRS. When BDBH is successful in obtaining 501c3 status, we will update. At this time, donations are not tax deductible.
