BARC-CT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal advocacy + rescue organization that exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome unwanted dogs from within our community and throughout Connecticut.
BARC-CT focuses on rescuing animals and providing them with medical care and access to trainers and behaviorists in order to help them make a full recovery regardless of what they have endured.
We rely solely on dedicated volunteers, including fosters who take rescued animals into their home and provide them with the care and nurturing they need. The generosity of donors provides funding for the many needs of the animals such as vetting, boarding, training, and general care.
All of our foster and adoptive homes are fully screened; this includes checking personal and vet references, obtaining landlord permission to have a pet, and meeting with the applicant while conducting a home visit to ensure the home is the right fit for the animal. All of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and altered prior to adoption.
