About our Adoption Process

Quilt.jpg

B.A.R.K. offers lovable companion dogs for adoption, generally to the Portland metro area (but can make exceptions).
 

We are a foster-based organization, and appointments for meet-and-greets after the application is submitted. This will NOT be a long process.

All of our dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, including puppies. They will have had their first vaccination and deworming. You will be responsible for the follow ups, and you agree to email or mail us copies of those vet visits.
 

Puppies will not be placed in homes with children under the age of 13.
 

We can ‘cat test’ the dog for you since we have two!
 

You will receive a free leather leash with your adoption. The meet-and-greet is usually at a PetSmart or Petco store so you can purchase a collar, tag, and other supplies you may need. All dogs will be placed by Jane with home check.

Hello!

My name is Jane, and I have been rescuing dogs for 30 years!

 

I began in Los Angeles, where the shelters were overcrowded and sad.

 

I started out rescuing my childhood breed, corgis, but soon realized the need of all the unwanted dogs. So I rescued as many as I could in each trip to a shelter.

Thankfully over the years more rescue groups appeared and things improved. Eventually I decided to move up to Oregon and take life a little slower. 

 

I soon realized Portland has the opposite problems as Los Angeles. There are very few homeless dogs here, especially smaller ones. Since I have heard this complaint, I began transporting some small dogs here and had a tremendous response. I now hear the South is in desperate need of help, so I will be transporting from Texas with the help of the East Texas SPCA.
