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 and proactive relationships with shelters, rescue groups, veterinarians, and adoptive families are a priority for 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.'s Prison Dog Program
B.A.R.K. has partnered with the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Lino Lakes to develop a fantastic program! Some of the B.A.R.K. foster dogs are now living and being "fostered" at the prison with the inmates. Since 2013, our prison pups have been playing, training, and getting ready for adoption every day with their handlers. This program has made it possible for us to save even more dogs and they are getting the best care possible!

Boone has been at B.A.R.K. since 2012!!
Mr. Boone is Captain Personality. He's a happy go lucky dog who just wants love. ALL THE LOVE. All the time. Love makes him happy. And happiness makes him explode into wiggles, zoomies, and head butting!
The Top 5 Adoption Must-Haves According to Boone:
1. Kids and Babies. They own toys and crayons, which are delicious.
2. No Fence. Neighbors, and their garbage, need love too!
3. Chickens and Cats. For protein.
4. Baby Gates. To stay in track & field shape.
5. Garden. Aeration and harvest is free of charge.
Boone marches to the beat of a drum only he can hear which can be exasperating and wonderful all at once. Even though he is stubborn and crazy at times...he is a loving boy who wants nothing more than a family of his very own. They are out there, we just need to find them!
Boone is up to date on all of his vaccinations. He had surgery on both knees for torn cruciate ligaments in 2012-2013. He has been neutered, de-wormed and is currently on monthly Frontline and Heartguard, as well.
