About Blackhawk Rescue & Rehab


Here at Blackhawk K-9, we believe deeply in the significance of giving back to our community. Our commitment to this principle is demonstrated through our partnership with a dedicated rescue organization focused on helping dogs nationwide.

Blackhawk Rescue and Rehab was founded by Samantha, owner of Blackhawk K-9. Samantha's passion for dogs and her dedication to their well-being led her to establish this rescue. We specialize in rescuing dogs that face the possibility of euthanasia or are surrendered by their owners. At Blackhawk K-9, we provide foster care for these dogs, offering them a safe haven and the opportunity to thrive until we find them their ideal forever home.

Our mission is rooted in compassion and driven by a desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of dogs in need. We believe that every dog deserves a chance at happiness and a loving home. Through our partnership with our rescue organization, we strive to match these deserving dogs with caring adopters who will cherish them as part of their family.

Join us in our mission to rescue, foster, and find loving homes for dogs across the country. Together, we can create brighter futures for these wonderful animals.

About Blackhawk Rescue & Rehab

Blackhawk Rescue and Rehab was founded out of a deep-seated commitment to giving dogs a second chance at a fulfilling life. Recognizing a gap in the rescue community for dogs needing rehabilitation before finding their forever homes, we established our organization with a mission to provide compassionate care and expert rehabilitation services.

At Blackhawk Rescue and Rehab, we believe in the transformative power of rehabilitation and training. Every dog in our care receives personalized attention and tailored rehabilitation programs to address their individual needs. Whether they require physical rehabilitation, behavioral modification, or simply time to heal and regain trust, we are dedicated to nurturing their journey towards adoption readiness.

Our team is driven by a shared passion for animal welfare and a dedication to ensuring that every dog receives the love, care, and training they deserve. We work tirelessly to match our dogs with loving adopters who are committed to continuing their journey with patience and understanding.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of these deserving animals. Together, we can provide hope and a brighter future for dogs in need of a second chance.

How do we select applicants?

We carefully select applicants who we believe will provide the best care for each dog. We prioritize approving applicants who are committed to providing professional training for their dog, either through our company with a 10% discount or through another local, trusted, insured, certified, and approved training provider. Applicants who demonstrate capability and a willingness to handle their dog's training themselves are given priority during our selection process. 

After filling out your application, please contact us via call, text, or email to inquire about the recommended training for the dog you are applying for. We appreciate your patience as we prioritize the health, well-being, and training of the dogs in our care. While we strive to respond promptly, please understand that due to the high volume of inquiries, it may take us up to a couple of weeks to reply to all interested adopters and clients.

Please note that we are unable to allocate time to communicate with potential adopters who have not yet completed an application. Therefore, we kindly request that you refrain from texting, calling, or emailing until after you have submitted your application.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in ensuring the best possible outcome for our dogs and adopters.
