About BARK

Bay Area Rescued Kanines (BARK) is an all-volunteer animal welfare organization primarily serving East Contra Costa County, but will gladly reach out to other communities if we can benefit a dog in need.


Our Mission Statement and Goals

BARK rescues animals, primarily dogs, from Contra Costa County shelters and other sources and relocates them to permanent homes.

When an animal is rescued, our volunteers will foster, rehabilitate, socialize, and train the pets before finding them loving homes. We serve as a resource to all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spaying/neutering, positive behavior training, and suitable nutrition and shelter.

The volunteers of BARK all share the same goals:

     bullet  Rescue companion animals to reduce euthanasia

     bullet  Foster, rehabilitate, and socialize unwanted, abandoned or abused pets

     bullet  Promote spaying and neutering to reduce litters

     bullet  Encourage positive behavioral training

     bullet  Relocate to permanent, loving homes

All of our rescued animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and evaluated by veterinarians prior to adoption.
