Bark Avenue Foundation is tackling the pet overpopulation problem through spay/neuter. The cost to spay/neuter a pet is prohibitive for many pet owners resulting in accidental litters and animals surrendered to municipal shelters. Our goal is to make a significant impact on the pet overpopulation crisis and drastically reduce the number of shelter animals being euthanized. Our programs support pet owners in at-risk and under-served populations, through education and providing resources that are otherwise unavailable.

Bark Avenue Foundation provides comprehensive animal care and pet owner support in select communities served by the Downey Animal Care Center. In addition to offering free and low-cost spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchips, the BAF Team also helps desperate families whose pets are in need of additional medical care that is financially out of reach. Often, these injuries or medical needs would lead to the pet being relinquished to the local shelter. The expenses for these cases can be tremendous. Please donate to the Emergency Medical Fund to keep more pets healthy and in homes.
