Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We serve Southern Ontario, though we've taken animals in from outside Ontario and placed them non-locally if that's where the best home is as well.
About Our Rescue Group:Please see our website at http://barlees.org for full information.
Barlee's Angels Rescue Network (BARN) is a non-profit, all-breed animal rescue based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to helping animals in need. We do this by taking in homeless animals, fostering them in the homes of our foster volunteers, tending to their veterinary needs, and adopting them into carefully screened homes. We work on any behavioral problems while they are in foster care as well as basic house manners, crate- and housetraining.
Barlee's Angels are usually abandoned, unwanted, abused or stray animals. These animals come primarily from shelters. Barlee's strongly supports responsible pet ownership and therefore will try to help people to keep their pets rather than accept the pet as a first option. As with all rescues, space is limited and if we can help some pet owners through the problems that are causing them to feel they must give up their pet, we can use that space for other animals in trouble.
Only if we are able to, BARN will accept an owner surrender into the rescue and rehoming program, but the pet must be vaccinated, altered, accompanied by all of it's possessions (eg bed, toys, blanket) and a surrender fee may be required to offset some of the substantial costs of caring for and rehoming an animal.
BARN provides foster care for our companion animals, evaluates temperament and personality, provides veterinary attention as necessary, spays or neuters and then matches the animal with a home that is suitable for that individual animal. This can often take months and it can be very costly. An adoption fee is charged for the pet and followups are ongoing to monitor the success of the placement. Wildlife are rehabilitated and released when possible.

Our Adoption Process:Please see our website at http://barlees.org for full information.
The adoption process for Barlee's Angels and for most rescues is a thorough process that involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time - and we'd like to stress that this is a necessary part of our job. We feel that when we rescue an animal we have a responsibility to ensure that we place it in a home that is equipped and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' natural life.
Please understand that filling out an adoption application or complying with any of our approval procedures in no way guarantees the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion. We also reserve the right to investigate for the purpose of verification information given in adoption applications, and not to disclose any such information revealed in such investigations.
