In April 2018, BarkVille put a plan into action to expand our rescue efforts to the Northeast. Working with our network partners in CT, we are now licensed to do adoptions in CT, NJ, PA, WV and VT. Since our expansion, we have more than doubled our overall adoption numbers.
Initially, we hired professional transporters to bring our dogs North, however, in 2019 we purchased a transport van of our own and formed transport teams to drive our dogs to their northern fosters & adopters.
Beginning in May 2019, we tripled the number of dogs adopted year over year thanks largely to our northeast expansion. This growth is expected to continue as we become licensed in more northern states. As a result, we continue to need additional volunteers throughout the northeast & GA to support our growth.
