Who We Are
A PLACE TO BARK is a no kill foster and adoption rescue dedicated to the welfare of animals and was founded by Bernie Berlin. Established in 2001, we mainly work with Animal Control Agencies, rescuing animals from high kill shelters and fostering them until they are healthy. This provides an ideal situation for the animals. They are then placed for adoption through Humane Societies in various parts of the country. We cover all costs for the medical care of the animals with no cost to the Humane Societies. We also handle some private adoptions after a strict screening process.
A PLACE TO BARK’S mission is to provide assistance and care to animals in need. Working together with other animal welfare agencies, uniting & each doing our part to create a win/win situation for every adoptable animal that comes into our program.
We are a new shelter concept, tackling an old problem. A Place To Bark is a temporary home, a foster facility that provides quarantine, full vet care, rehab & training to help adoptable animals further in the adoption process. All animals rescued are spay/neutered to reduce the future population & by saving existing lives, our program encompasses all vital actions needed to benefit the pets in need.
Our dedication is to creating a program that could be the next step towards a no kill nation. By building bridges and networking together, we hope to see a future of ending the unnecessary killing of animals.
