The Black Dog in downtown Newburyport has a long time partnership with the local rescue group, One Tail at a Time. Together we will be hosting a dog adoption day this Saturday, March the 4th from 10 AM – 1 PM. The Black Dog has numerous stores and each store works with local shelters to help promote dog adoption and rescue efforts.
Why do we do this? We do this because our roots and our iconic Black Dog silhouette were born from a rescue. More than 46 years ago Captain Douglas of Martha’s Vineyard rescued a small black pup with white paws and of no certain pedigree. She was called Black Dog and she lived for 16 years sailing side by side with her captain. Rescue and dog adoption is embedded in our Brand, and we hope that one day every dog will have a loving home.
One Tail at a Time Rescue saves dogs and puppies from high-kill shelters mostly from the rural south because that’s where the help is needed the most. All of the rescued dogs are placed in volunteer foster homes until they are able to find their forever home.
Seven perfectly healthy pups just made their journey to Massachusetts and they are looking for their family! We encourage everyone to ADOPT and not SHOP for a pet. Please join us this Saturday for our dog adoption event in the Newburyport Black Dog store located at 37 State Street. We will be donating 20% of our sales to One Tail at a Time so that they can continue to bring dogs to safety. Even if you can’t adopt a pup, you can SHOP for a cause! Treat yourself to a few new things, or maybe you have gifts to purchase. This is a great opportunity to pick up quality Black Dog merchandise, and possibly provide a loving home for one of these very special pups.
