Rescue vs Shelter vs Humane Society, what's the difference?

BARC is a non-profit charitable animal rescue and foster organization. It is made up of a group of community volunteers that rescue abandoned, abused, homeless, lost, neglected, and unwanted dogs and cats from high-kill animal shelters and provides these dogs and cats with medical attention (including sterilization), nutrition, social interaction, development, and loving care in foster homes until they are adopted into kind and loving forever homes.

As a foster-based organization, we do not have a physical facility, and rely on people to open up their hearts and their homes to them, until they find their forever homes. If you are interested in being a dog or cat foster, let us know !

If you are not able to foster, but would like to help out, please check out the options for donations in menu, and our volunteer opportunities! We are a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and any of your donations are tax-deductible!

Our Mission

BARC rescues dogs and cats from situations of abuse and neglect and provides them with medical attention, love, and kindness in foster homes until they are adopted. BARC also aims to raise public awareness to the plight of these animals who cannot speak for themselves by educating the public regarding overpopulation, the physical and emotional care of their pets, and promoting spaying/neutering of pets. Our goal is to eliminate animal over-population, abuse, neglect, and homelessness.
