My name is Barney and I'm from Lincoln Nebraska (Go Huskers)! I used to live with my Mom but she needed to move to Minnesota and into assisted living, so now I'm being fostered by a family friend, who also volunteers at Animal Ark! How lucky can a guy get? My foster family has two dogs, two guinea pigs and I'm finding out that I really like having a doggie family. Perhaps you have a Wilma, Fred or Betty (wink)? I enjoy hanging out with the guinea pigs, cuz they are too little to wrestle with me and I love wrestling. Just ask my doggie foster sister, Maya. You wouldn't guess me to be seven years YOUNG. Did I mention that I LOVE to wrestle? If you have some of those non-furry kids, I like to play with them, too. The non-furry kids need to like kisses, because I'm a master level kisser. I have a trophy and everything! I miss my former Mom sometimes, so I need lots of cuddles. My foster dog brother, Axel, lets me cuddle with him. I also like time to find the best food pieces in my food bowl; you will find the rejects next to my bowl. Please help yourself, as I know how to share. I will potty regularly outside and I won't put up a fuss if you need to put me in a kennel for awhile. You will need to give me time to adjust, as change isn't always super easy for fur kids. I sleep on a regular doggie bed and don't mess with stuff while you sleep. I've been told that I'm a good boy. I walk pretty decent on leash and I don't run too far from my peeps, because I'm aware that they help provide me the good life. So, if you're lookin' for love in all the wrong places, come meet me or some of my friends at Animal Ark. We have lots of love to share!

Animal Ark is open Tues-Fri Noon - 6:00 PM; Sat & Sun 11 AM - 5:00 PM. Closed Mondays.

Our Adoption Process...

Basic Steps:

• Come to the shelter during normal business hours.
• An adoption counselor will assist you in finding your new pet
• Fill out the adoption application and interview with the adoption counselor.
• Complete the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.
• Take your new pet home… and spoil them for life!

Adoption Requirements:

• Adopters must be 18 years old with a valid picture I.D.
• If you lease or rent, we do require permission from your landlord or the primary resident prior to adoption. Animal Ark reserves the right to contact your landlord for verification.
• We do require an approved application for kittens and puppies before they can be seen. Also, all animals, regardless of age, will need to be spayed and neutered prior to adoption which means there will be a delay in the adoption of animals that have not had their surgery yet. However, an animal can be put on hold with payment in full so long as the adopter has an approved application, and has met the animal.

Additional Tips:

• We suggest bringing any family members or roommates who you’d like to meet the pet. If you are looking to adopt a dog please call ahead if you already have a resident dog so we can make arrangements for a meet n’ greet at our shelter.
• For animals in foster care: please inquire with our shelter and an adoption counselor will assist you in making the necessary arrangements to meet the animal.
• Download our Adoption Application, fill it out, and bring it with you when you come to the shelter. This will save time during the adoption process.
• We do not start the adoption process less than an hour before closing, so please plan accordingly.

Adoption Fees:
• Dogs and puppies: $200-$450
• Adult Cats: $135
• Kittens: $155
• Senior Cats: $95
