Who We Are

Welcome to All Breed Animal Rescue of the Carolinas where your new best friend is only A BARC away! We are a non-profit organization of dedicated friends committed to saving and re-homing neglected, unwanted, stray or abused animals. Based in Apex, North Carolina, we support North Carolina, Virginia, and beyond in placing homeless dogs with new loving families. A BARC is an established non-profit corporation in the state of North Carolina, and we have 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Specializing in dogs and puppies, with a concentration on pregnant dogs, A BARC gets most animals from rural high kill shelters and humane societies. While we do not have any cats in our program at this time, we are working to establish a community outreach program to help trap, neuter, and release feral cat communities, while providing food for custodians of the colonies. At A BARC we do not have a building, office, or shelter. All of our animals enter into volunteer foster homes and live indoors with the foster family and other pets. Every animal receives a complete physical, age appropriate immunizations, sterilization, heartworm test and treatment for any illnesses or diseases. All animals receive monthly flea/tick preventative and dogs also receive monthly heartworm preventative. Our rescue is run by volunteers who donate their time and love of animals to help our efforts to save lives. We are always looking for volunteers and foster homes interested in joining our mission. If you would like specific information about any of our orphans or about the rescue please contact us by email:

Adopting a friend

All adopters must be 21 or older. All applicants must submit an application for review, which can take up to 14 days to process upon receipt. Once the preliminary application is approved a home visit is required to complete the adoption process. All adopters must enter into a legal and binding contract upon completion of the adoption. For adult dogs the fee is $250. For puppies the adoption fee is $300. For dogs deemed to be seniors, for their particular breed, the adoption fee is $225. Adoption fee includes vet exam, spay/neuter, microchip, age appropriate vaccinations, flea prevention, worm treatment and heart worm test. All our pets are fostered in a home, are started on crate training & with dog door training. They are also socialized with other pets in their foster home by the time of adoption. Adult dogs come with a two week trial to make sure it is a good fit.
