The 2004 BARC Fall Fundraiser

(BARC, Bernese Auction Rescue Coalition)



BARC, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating Bernese Mountain Dogs from dog brokers, dog auctions, puppy mills, and any other dangerous, exploitative or abusive situation.

BARC. places these dogs in loving pet homes as spayed or neutered companions.


As you know, rescue is very expensive. But doing nothing is even more costly! Through your generous donations they are able to pay for such things as routine and emergency veterinary care, including expenses for spaying, neutering, vaccination, emergency health care for critically ill or undernourished puppies and pregnant bitches, and, when genetic disease is suspected, the cost of testing and documenting it. Your financial support also enables them to cover the costs of screening adoptive families and educating the public regarding puppy mills and commercial, high-volume puppy breeding.
