The 2004 BARC, Inc. Fundraiser

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


Since BARC's founding, they have rescued and placed over 200 at-risk Bernese Mountain Dogs. 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.

Please help by entering this Fundraising Raffle to
continue to rescue these lovely dogs and place them in forever homes and educate the public.
