Meet and Greets
Please note that BARK is an all volunteer organization and the kennels are located on private property, so there are no "open hours" for visiting dogs. Meet and greets for potential adopters must be coordinated in advance. If you're interested in meeting a dog, please fill out an application online.
Age: 3 years
Adopt from Bark
All of BARK's dogs are spayed/neutered, given routine vaccinations appropriate to their age, tested for heartworms, and microchipped prior to adoption. You can learn more about adopting from BARK here.
Volunteer at Bark
We always need more ‘hands’ to help care for our dogs' every day needs. Volunteer opportunities range from hands-on help with the dogs to supporting our administrative team with fundraising, record keeping, or other exciting projects.
Foster for Bark
The BARK foster program is temporarily on hold. If you're interested in fostering in the Richmond area, please consider applying with Richmond Animal League (RAL) or Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation (AARF).
Donate to Bark
As an all-volunteer organization, donations enable BARK to continue to provide the necessary care for all of our dogs. Even the smallest amount or item makes a BIG difference! Learn more about donating by viewing a brief video.
The mission of Bandit's Adoption and Rescue of K-9s (BARK) is to rescue orphaned or abandoned pets and other adoptable dogs from animal shelters in the Richmond area, provide spay/neuter and vaccinations, then find loving, forever homes for them. In 2015, BARK placed 353 dogs in forever homes. Learn more about BARK’s History.
