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 2012, BARK placed 560 dogs in forever homes. Learn about BARK’s History.

Upcoming special events:
IMPORTANT CHANGE TO ADOPTION OUTINGS! Beginning on July 6, 2013, BARK will be holding our Saturday adoption outings from noon until 3:00 pm at the Jessica Beath Clinic at the Farrington Firehouse (12300 Farrington Rd., Ashland). This change is in response to new policies put in place by PetSmart that limit our abiltity to safely showcase our adoptable dogs on our busiest adoption day. We will not be holding adoption stands on Sunday until further notice. As a reminder, all volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times!
Saturday, December 7th - BARK will be holding a special adoption event from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm at the West End Southern States located at 8718 W. Broad Street in Richmond. Southern States will be having a Christmas open house all day with pictures with Santa and games for kids. This is a great opportunity for BARK foster parents to bring out their foster dog for some increased, and different, exposure!
