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.
B.A.R.K. Dogs Fostered with Inmates
B.A.R.K. has partnered with the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Lino Lakes to develop a fantastic new program! Some of the B.A.R.K. foster dogs are now living and being "fostered" at the prison with the inmates. Together, they are playing, training, and getting ready for adoption every day. This program has made it possible for us to save even more dogs and they are getting the best care possible!

"Maggie the Magnet"
2 years old
American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Rescued from the euthansia list at a local metro area shelter
Maggie is any families dream dog! She's happy, social, and loves her busy foster home! She lives with kids, cats, dogs, and a bird! She's a veteran camper and loves to go to the lake or anyplace her family wants to take her. She is food motivated and easily trained. She is used to being crated for a work day and sleeps with her family at night. Maggie would be an excellent companion for another playful, energetic dog. If she can't be with her family, she would need a dog friend to keep her company! Maggie has been in foster care WAY too long! Please help our little black girl find her family!
Maggie 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 Maggie, or another one of our other wonderful dogs: Visit our Dog Application page and we will contact you soon!
