WHO IS BARKVILLE
BarkVille Dog Rescue is a 100% volunteer, nonprofit organization committed to saving dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. We are a no-breed specific rescue, and we do not exclude dogs due to extensive medical needs. Our goal is to save dogs in the most need of rescue assistance. We work with our friends and donors to raise the funds necessary to provide lifesaving treatments for the dogs we rescue, to identify the best foster situations for the dogs in our care, and ultimately place the dogs in their forever homes.
“We envision a compassionate world where all dogs reside in responsible, loving homes and work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of supporters and volunteers to create a better world for homeless dogs.”
Kim Murphy, Co-Founder
Making An Impact in Georgia
Every dog our volunteers rescue are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment needed prior to adoption. Our dogs are placed in a nurturing foster home while they await placement into their permanent loving home. We remain interested in and committed to the welfare of our dogs beyond adoption.
We are proud that we’ve saved more than 2,100 dogs and have matched more than 1,800 dogs with their forever families.
We will continue to help dogs in distress without regard to age, breed, size, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need will take priority. Please help us save more dogs by considering fostering.
BarkVille Needs Your Help
We are always looking for dog lovers to volunteer. We have such an amazing group of talented, kind, generous, and compassionate volunteers! We appreciate our volunteers as we could not save dogs without this outstanding group of individuals! Each and every volunteer in our group has the same agenda, saving dogs! Consider volunteering with us.
Fosters are hero's who open their hearts and homes enabling us to save dogs. We cannot save dogs without a committed foster home. Fosters volunteer their time to help nurture dogs back to physical and mental health. A foster allows the dog to live in their home until we find a loving forever family – this can be as little as a few weeks to several months. Consider fostering.
We often have financial struggles because we rely entirely on donations to cover medical costs, monthly preventatives, training, and boarding costs. Taking care of 100+ dogs at any given time is expensive. Everything we are able to do is based on the support from our donors. We’re extremely thankful to the generous donors. Please consider donating, we would be grateful.
“Our more than 75 volunteers work daily to support our dogs until a family that matches well with their size, energy level, and personality is found. It is so important that a dog not only finds a home, but a home where they will be cared for and loved for the rest of their lives.”
