Being Advocates for Rescued K-9's means...
...we believe that saving one life at a time makes a difference.
...we improve the quality of life for the rescued dogs by providing safe, loving, and knowledgeable foster homes.
...we believe that supportive relationships with shelters, rescue groups, veterinarians, and adoptive families are a priority for the well being of all dogs.
...we take pride in taking the time to work with each dog's unique personalities and behaviors to ensure that their next home is the "forever home".
Please contact us if you have interest in volunteering with B.A.R.K., becoming a foster family, or adopting a new friend!
We rescue, care for, and re-home dogs in need. The majority of our dogs come from overcrowded shelters where they are in danger of being euthanized. We are an all-breed rescue and will accept dogs of any breed into foster care as long as we have a willing and open home available!
After locating and rescuing a dog, they receive quality veterinary care such as vaccinations, de-worming, a spay/neuter, and parasite control, as well as treatment for any other medical issues that are found. Every animal is altered prior to final adoption.
Adoption fees do not cover the care and maintenance that goes into each animal, but they certainly help offset some of the cost. We rely on donations from the public to help us continue to rescue. These donations can be monetary, food, leashes, toys, Frontline, and much more. New or used, we accept it all and put it to good use!
We are a 501(c)3 which means all donations are tax deductible and you will be issued a receipt upon request.
A HUGE Thank You to third graders! B.A.R.K. volunteers regularly visit schools and community events to promote their "Foster, Fix, and Forever" message. These particular third graders are currently conducting a donation drive for B.A.R.K. and will be out collecting supplies for our dogs. Additionally, they have been tasked with a "foster challenge"! Each class is sponsoring one of our foster dogs (Violet, Amelia, and Arthur) and they are out there networking to help us find them a home, just like our real foster families do! The first class to help find their dog a new home gets a special surprise when we come back next month!
Good Luck Everyone!
RESULTS ARE IN!
WINNER!! Still Waiting... 2nd Place!
"Anna the Pretty Pittie"
4 years old
American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Anna was recently returned to B.A.R.K. because she got outside and roamed the neighborhood. She is now learning how to "wait" and get her "ok" before she's allowed through a door. She also knows other obdedience commands and loves to please her handler. Anna is a high drive dog with a strong will. This little diva will need a family with previous dog experience for the best possible outcome. She is housebroken, quietly sleeps in a crate at night, and is great with people! She is selective about her choice of dogmates so if she were an "only dog" in her new home she would be just fine with that!
Anna is up to date on all of her vaccinations. She has been spayed, heartworm tested negative, and de-wormed. She is currently on monthly Frontline and Heartguard, as well. If you're interested in learning more about Anna, or another one of our other wonderful dogs: Visit our Dog Application page and we will contact you soon!
