Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
All of our puppies and dogs are altered (spayed/neutered),vaccinated, microchipped, rabies if over 4 months old, and fostered in our homes until wonderful people in the community step forward to make their fosters into forevers!
Please be aware that without knowing family trees and oftentimes not knowing either parent dog, all breed descriptions are speculation from staff of BARK and PACC.
BARK intends for each of our adoptions to be the beginning of a lifelong relationship. We ask for only the attention of responsible, committed, mature individuals.
We are a small group of dedicated volunteers and foster families helping find dogs and cats forever homes in the Tucson community. All of our animals are housed in foster homes with other animals, so we've had a chance to see them in a "family" environment and interacting with other animals.
BARK is focused mainly on young rescues. Community animal control facilities often do not have the resources to take care of pregnant animals or mothers with young puppies or kittens. For this reason, they are euthanized. We take these pregnant mothers and young animals into foster homes and provide the care they need until they are old enough for adoption into their forever homes.
We are always looking for new VOLUNTEERS to help at our adoption site. We are also looking for foster homes. If you can help in either of these areas, please stop by our PETCO adoption site on Saturday and we can answer any questions you have and give you an application form. We provide training for all foster families and adoption counselors/teen volunteers. Thank you in advance.

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.
