Thank you for inquiring about adopting a dog through BARX! The procedure for adopting a dog is as follows.
Please complete the application, after your application has been received, our adoption coordinator will conduct a phone interview with you to discuss BARX Rescue Squad and Resource Center in general and specifically any rescue dogs that would be a good match for you. A home check from one of our volunteers is necessary to complete the process.
The minimum donation at the time of adoption, for a BARX dog range from $100.00-$400.00. There are many variables which are considered for the applicable adoption fee. All of the dogs we adopt out to new homes come with a complete adoption kit which includes discounted services and coupons at local pet venues, a free vet exam, 1 month of free pet insurance, a new leash, collar and harness, id tag, a new bed, food, treats, toys and any other necessities pertaining to that particular dog.
Crates can be additionally purchased at a discounted rate. We also include any previous medical history about the dog and current medical records we have acquired while in our care. They also all have had a physical exam, are neutered or spayed, immunized, and micro-chipped. To the best of our knowledge this pet is in a good medical standing before adoption.
We reserve the right to refuse an applicant if, in our opinion, the home situation is not compatible with the needs of a BARX dog. We require that the dog be maintained primarily as an indoor dog and cannot be chained or left unattended in a yard.
We have successfully placed hundreds of dogs in loving homes. All BARX dogs have had a physical exam, are neutered or spayed, immunized, and micro-chipped. Most dogs come to us from dog shelters where they are scheduled to be euthanized, homes where there has been a move, a divorce, allergies or just not enough quality time to spend with the dog.
Our organization is comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing these wonderful dogs placed in loving homes and given a second chance for a happy life.
