BARK is an all-breed rescue organization. We are based out of Belleville, IL, which is about 20 minutes east of St. Louis, MO. As a rescue group, we have no official "shelter" facility. BARK is 100% volunteers. Most work full time, and volunteer their free time to fostering or helping out the animals in whatever way they have time for. Still, we all make time to save these furballs. We exist solely on donations, as we are an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit organization (donations are tax-deductible). We are fully licensed by the state, and we are always looking for people to help our organizationand the animals! We are a network of foster homes who teach and take care of our animals until they can find their forever homes. We rescue all breeds, sizes, and ages!

Who We Are:

BARK takes in stray, abandoned and shelter animals. We are ALWAYS looking for foster homes to house our animals!!! We can only save as many as we can foster. Our organization runs only on donations. Any type of donation big or small greatly helps. Even donating collars, leashes, toys, piddle pads, Dog and Cat food greatly helps. These little furry faces depend on us and we do everything we can to make their stay in the foster homes as easy and stress free as we can. Lots of love is what helps them the most.
