My story

Meet Bear

Bear is an absolutely adorable puppy, thought to be a Boxer Mix. His estimated date of birth is February 12th of this year. He and his six brothers joined BAARK’s Safe House from a high kill shelter in Oklahoma. We took this litter into our program because the puppies looked frail and sickly…and desperate. We expected that no other rescue groups would want to deal with such helpless puppies. Little did we know that the puppies had been infected with the deadly parvovirus. Sadly four of the boys did not survive. But three did…and they are all strong and healthy! And ready to enjoy every day of long healthy lives!

Bear is surely making up for lost time. He’s a very active boy, always running and playing. He would do best as an only dog. Older children may also provide good companionship for Bear. We expect that his energy level would be too much for smaller children. A secure, fenced yard would be ideal for Bear as would obedience training and a family committed to ensuring he grows into a well mannered member of his new family.

However for now, it is important for a potential adopter to realize that Bear IS a puppy and engages in typical puppy antics such as chewing, getting into things he shouldn’t, and getting into “puppy trouble” because he simply does not know better, and needs to learn good manners.

BAARK is fully committed to providing comprehensive veterinary care to all of its dogs, and is looking for adopters who share this value. Our adoption fee includes all appropriate vaccinations, neuter, and microchipping. In addition all of our dogs are on year-round heartworm prevention.

If you might be interested in adding Bear to your family, please contact BAARKDogRescue@gmail.com or 847-852-0895

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1. Complete B.A.A.R.K.’s adoption application in its entirety. Prior to submitting an application for a particular pet, we encourage you to research the breed so that you understand the characteristics and needs of the animal. 2. After submitting the application, a B.A.A.R.K. adoption coordinator will contact you (assuming you are the primary caregiver to/adopter of the new pet) to review your application and conduct an initial phone interview. 3. A representative of B.A.A.R.K. will contact your references and verify the veterinary information that you have provided on the application for pets currently or previously owned. Please be sure you inform your references that you have provided their contact information to B.A.A.R.K. and that they will be contacted. 4. If, at any time during the adoption process, we conclude that the pet of interest is not a good match for your household, your application will be kept on file for one year. You will not be required to complete another application during that time period if you find another pet you are interested in adopting from B.A.A.R.K. Rescue. 5. After the initial phone interview, if B.A.A.R.K. has decided that the pet of interest to you may be a good fit for your household, a “meet & greet” will be arranged, either at the home of the foster family or at your home. If the first visit is preferred to take place at the foster home, a second visit will be arranged at your home. 6. B.A.A.R.K. will bring the pet of interest to your home for a meeting with ALL family members and ALL other pets within the household. The purpose of the home visit is to ensure that the pet you have chosen is appropriate for your living situation and lifestyle. Please note that ALL FAMILY MEMBERS AND ALL FAMILY PETS MUST BE PRESENT FOR THE IN-HOME INTERVIEW. More than one meeting may be required during the adoption process to ensure the best placement possible for the pet and the household. 7. When you have made the decision to adopt a pet from B.A.A.R.K. Rescue, we ask that you to spend 1-2 days thinking about the decision, in order to ensure that you are making the best choice for the pet and your family. A same day adoption is NEVER an option. 8. Once the decision is made to proceed with the adoption, an adoption contract must be reviewed, completed, and signed. B.A.A.R.K.’s adoption fee is non-refundable. You may also be asked to provide a separate check(s) of $150 as a fence deposit, obedience training deposit, and/or spay/neuter deposit. Check deposits will either be destroyed or returned upon completion of the required action.
