About Our Rescue Group:

Established in September 2001,The Bytown Association for Rescued Kanines (B.A.R.K.) is an all breed "no kill" rescue organization.We are a registered charity comprised solely of dedicated and experienced volunteers.

The primary focus of our organization is...

~ the rescue and rehabilitation of abused or abandoned dogs in the Ottawa area;

~ to provide a support system for families to try to keep dogs in their original homes;

~ to find new homes, on a limited basis and as space permits, for unwanted dogs;

~ to educate children and adults on how to choose and care for a pet, how to behave around an unknown dog, and what to do if a dog chases you.

We uphold a "no kill" policy for all animals that come under our care, so we keep animals in their foster homes until they can find their forever home

We do not display our dogs other than on our website

Our Adoption Process:

We have a very rigid screening process, adopters sign a contract agreeing to take care of the dog as we would and to contact us if they cannot keep the dog for any reason.

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.
