Adoption process

Our process begins with an application that must be submitted as the first step.  A BARRK volunteer will then contact you within 1 to 5 days via email to schedule a telephone interview.  Once the phone interview takes place and there continues to be a potential for being a good match, BARRK will contact your Landlord (if applicable), personal references, and vet references.  Once your references have been confirmed, you will be contacted by a BARRK Home Visit volunteer to schedule a home visit. After the Home Visit is approved, you will receive an email informing you of your approval together with a BARRK Adoption Contract and link to pay the required adoption fee with $100 being counted as nonrefundable should you change your mind.  Signed contracts and adoption fees MUST BE PAID WITHIN 5 days to finalize the adoption process otherwise, your requested dog will be put back up for adoption.

 The application review process can take up to a week or longer depending on the volume of applications, dogs/puppies available, and number of volunteers available. Most of our volunteers work full time jobs so sometimes it is the following weekend before applicants are contacted. We make every attempt to let you know the status of your app, but sometimes we cannot if there is an overabundance of apps for one dog or puppy.  We do NOT have a facility or paid staff. We are an ALL VOLUNTEER organization. Your patience is appreciated.
