BARC's Rescue

we serve these populations

  • animal welfare

We give dogs the most important ride of their life. Founded in 2012, our volunteer-based charity has transported close to 2,500 dogs across North America and internationally that are at the threat of being euthanized. Working in partnership with shelters, we identify and transport dogs on buses, cars, and planes to pre-qualified homes in Alberta and the Eastern Region of B.C. When our dogs have adjusted from their journey and settled into their foster homes, they are either adopted by the foster or become available for adoption.

We are addressing an international crisis about shelter over-population, owner-dog surrenders, and discriminatory breed-specific legislation. We believe that every dog deserves a new leash on life.

We consistently seek fosters, funds, partners, and volunteers.

We have very recently taken over possession of a new facility and need to turn it into our home base for our rescue. Donations will support our venture in creating a facility that will be used to shelter homeless dogs that is safe and secure.

The community will be impacted by having a local organization that they can turn to for help with lost, homeless, or surrendered dogs. With our new space, we venture to save and rescue more dogs within our network!
