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 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!

18 months old
Roxie is a gorgeous one-eyed baby who was an unclaimed stray left at animal control. We're not exactly sure what her breed is (she's very short and chunky like a bulldog!) Roxie is an affectionate girl and loves attention from her people. The vet believes that Roxie's eye (or lack of) is a birth defect and she gets around just as easily as a two eyed dog so don't let that stop you from meeting this great pup! Roxie's ideal home would include people who have owned a dog before and can work with Roxie on some basic obedience and greeting other dogs nicely. She loves kids but like any puppy, can get overly excited, playbite, and use that big head in ways that are not always appreciated by little kids. Families with kids who are in upper grade school or older would be ideal! Roxie can be selective about her dog friends. She's not a dog that would love dog park chaos but playtime in her own home is enjoyable! She tends to gravitate towards puppies or submissive dogs and does not like dogs that have issues with aggression or overly dominant tendencies. She thrives on a routine and having a mellow household. She doesn't require a ton of exercise and loves to snuggle!
Roxie is up to date on all of her vaccinations. She has been spayed, de-wormed and is currently on monthly Frontline and Heartguard, as well. If you're interested in learning more about Roxie, or another one of our other wonderful dogs: Visit our Dog Application page and we will contact you soon!
