We rescue and rehome abandoned and unwanted dogs with the aim of finding them new, forever homes. We are based in South Yorkshire but cover parts of West Yorkshire as well. If you can’t see just what you are looking for then please keep checking our website as we never know what we will be getting in next. We do carry out home checks before re-homing any animal. Please see our information on Adopting A Dog.
BADAW is proud to be in partnership with Pets at Home and is Wilkinson charity of the year at the Wombwell store (wilko.com). If you shop at Pets at Home, please join their VIP club. It’s free and you can also raise money for animal charities with each purchase. We would be grateful if you would please nominate Barnsley & District Animal Welfare as your chosen charity. Full details are on the Pets at Home website.
Members of BADAW give up their time free of charge so we can make full use of funds raised to help rescued animals. There are a number of ways you can help us by making a donation. The easiest is by Paypal. Simply click the Donate button below.
Other ways to donate include setting up a monthly standing order, using the Payroll Giving to Charity system if you are working or by using the Government’s Gift Aid scheme. For more information on these please see our donate page.

Members of the Songwriters Forum were invited to enter a competition organised by John Bonney to compose a song to highlight the plight of dogs needing new homes and to help raise money for BADAW. This “Pawprint Challenge” attracted interest from many talented artists and the resulting album is amazing. It is free to download using the link below and you are invited to make a donation to BADAW if you wish. Another competition held in Summer 2013 resulted in a further album, also available for download and once again, you are invited to make a donation to BADAW. Our sincere thanks go to everyone who entered the competitions and for their generosity in giving their time and talents to help our cause.
N.B. There is also a video of the 6th track on the album by Binladeda & Dutchbeat . See here: Somebody help me
