The mission of Bandit's Adoption and Rescue of K-9s (BARK) is to rescue orphaned or abandoned pets and other adoptable dogs from animal shelters in the Richmond area, provide spay/neuter and vaccinations, then find loving, forever homes for them. In 2014, BARK placed 323 dogs in forever homes. You can view a brief overview about BARK hereLearn about BARK’s History.
