Blackhat Humane Society

We work to rescue the 200,000 abandoned and stray animals on the Navajo Nation. Blackhat Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit supported by a network of volunteer foster families who home all of our dogs and cats. 

Why adopt from Blackhat Humane Society?

“We searched the internet, read the paper and met several great dogs. However, the connection wasn’t there. Then, we saw a listing from Blackhat. In that listing was a cute puppy with a one of a kind face… Minon.” – The Carter Family, Blackhat Adopter

Stephen Peterson & Luna

“… This is an amazing dog and everyone who crosses her path wants to know what she is and how I got her. She rolls on her belly for four-year-old kids to pet her “

Lisa Burk, Sandy & Jack

“…When I look at both Sandy and Jack Rascal, I see two dogs who are intelligent, loving and appreciative of what they have been given. Had they not been rescued and adopted they would likely not have survived much longer on the rez.”

The Carter Family & Minon

” …She continues to show her outgoing personality and loving character. She loves her boys and looks for them when they are not here. We love her being here. She is truly a member of our family.”
