Adopt a Dog - See available dogs below

Our dogs available for adoption are all living in private foster homes and are available for you to meet. 

 

Our adoption fee includes a general health check, flea and worming treatment, vaccination, microchipping and desexing.  If the dog is too young for desexing, a voucher is provided.  A 14 day adoption trial period is available when adopting an animal from BARRC.

 

BARRC treats every adopter as an individual, rather than meeting every application with a rigid set of questions that require yes/no answers destined to disqualify them at some point along the way, we are striving to work with adopters to be the best pet owners they can be.  This means working with each adopter to help them find an appropriate pet that fits their specific lifestyle.  By supporting adopters rather than judging them, we can place more animals in homes and shorten their length of stay in foster care.

 

Post-adoption support and remaining in touch with adopters plays an important role in trying to ensure that the adoption is successful over the lifetime of the animal.

To ensure the dog is the best match for your home and lifestyle, we encourage you to read the full information provided on the dog’s SavourLife profile prior to submitting your enquiry to adopt.

Note: not all dogs may have a link to their profile; if you are interested in knowing more about this dog, please email us at barrcadopt@gmail.com for more information and an expression of interest form, or check back in a few days to see if their profile has become available.
