Barks of Love

Fullerton, California

Cause Description:
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO We are not a shelter – We rescue FROM shelters. Therefore we do not have a central location where our dogs are homed together. Our dogs are in private fosters homes receiving day to day care by caring volunteers, who teach them to live in a home environment. This also means we do not have an office or regular business hours. Barks of Love is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization staffed ENTIRELY by volunteers. We consider ourselves an independent, “grass roots” type of an organization making a difference one dog at a time. Established in 2008 by Ashley Greenspan, we’ve been helping the community save over 400 dogs as of late 2010. Our goal is to decrease the total number of animals being euthanized each year. We save dogs from many different situations – Mostly, we pull “death row” dogs from local animal shelters. We provide the daily needed care to keep the dogs safe and happy. We keep dogs in our program until we’ve found their “Furever Home”. To do this, we hold weekly adoption events, advertise via our online network, screen applicants, and hold doggie “meet and greets”. All adoption applicants must be: -Approved by BOL Staff with a completed Adoption Application -21 years of age -Provide proof of ID -Consent to a homecheck -Sign an Adoption Contact -Make a donation Adoption donations pay for the time, energy and costs we’ve put into the dogs while in our care, including, but not limited to: food, toys, beds, rehabilitation, grooming, vaccinations, spay or neuter, microchipping, vet evaluation, etc. As you can see, all adoption donations go DIRECTLY to rescuing the dogs. BENEFITS OF ADOPTING FROM BOL: * Since we visit a variety of animal shelters to rescue dogs, we can be on the lookout for the specific type of animal you are interested in. * Most of our adoptable animals have been in foster care--in a regular home environment--so we have a good idea of how each of our animals will behave in the real world. We usually know if a dog is housebroken, good with other dogs, good with cats, appropriate for children or not, energy/activity level, and so forth. This makes it easier to match up our dogs with the right home, and easier for you to select the right one. * Our dogs have already been vet-checked, vaccinated, dewormed, and spayed/neutered before adoption. While no one can guarantee the long-term health of any animal, we do take the time and incur the expense to get basic healthcare and assessments done before our dogs go to permanent homes. * When you adopt from us, your pet already has close to $300 of care invested in it before you take him/her home! Of course, the tender-loving care they receive from their foster parents, as we prepare them for their new permanent homes, is priceless!
