About Our Rescue Group:

BARKS (Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad) is a non-profit, all volunteer, animal rescue organization founded in 1973 to provide veterinary care, housing and permanent placement of stray and abandoned cats and dogs.

BARKS works in association with the Byram Pound located on Mansfield Drive in Byram Township, N.J. In addition to the pets that can be seen at the Byram Pound, we also have many cats in foster homes and several dogs in local kennels. These pets can be seen by appointment and at our regularly scheduled adoption days.

Our Adoption Process:

Our Adoption Policy
BARKS has many wonderful pets available for adoption. All our pets are spayed and neutered and have a current rabies and distemper vaccine. In addition, all cats are tested for feline aids and feline leukemia and all dogs are heartworm tested.
BARKS prohibits the declawing of our cats but check our website for cats found already declawed. They are identified by a black pawprint on the petfinder listing.

Our screening and adoption process:
Our screening process consists of a written application, including a veterinary reference where applicable, and a personal interview. At our discretion, a visit to the prospective home may be required.

All pets are accepted for return if the pet is not adjusting well at the home. We encourage adoptive homes to make this decision within 30 days but will accept the pet back at any later date with reasonable advance notice.

We request an adoption donation per pet.
Adoption fees:
The adoption fee is $150.00 for dogs.
For cats, there is a discount for adopting two cats at the same time:
Kittens 0-8 months: $120 ($195 for 2)
Adults 8 months - 7 yrs: $95 ($160 for 2)
Seniors 7+ yrs: $50 ($75 for 2)
(fee for adopting multiple cats/mixed ages will be determined on a case by case basis)

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
