About Our Rescue Group:

Bay Area Rescue Keeshonden, Inc. (BARK) is an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization. We rescue Keeshond dogs of all ages from animal shelters and individuals throughout Northern California.

We foster our dogs in the homes of volunteers. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, immunized, tested for heartworms, and microchipped prior to adoption.

We care very deeply about our dogs! We are available to our adopters with advice and support for the lifetime of the dog.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our dogs are fostered in the homes of volunteers. We introduce our dogs to prospective adopters by appointment only. We don't have a kennel where people can come to view dogs!

Our Adoption Process:

We place our dogs in approved homes only in Northern California.

We match our dogs with their new people very carefully, taking into consideration such factors as the type of home (house, apartment, etc.), children or other pets in the home, and the kinds of activities the people like to do with their dogs.

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out our adoption application, which includes veterinary and personal references. Our adoption process also includes a home visit with all members of the household.

If we have a dog who seems like a good match for you, we make arrangements for you to meet the dog in the foster home.

We require an adoption contract and adoption fee. Adoption fees range from $200 to $400.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
