Empowering pet owners and local communities to
reduce abandoned animal populations through spay
& neuter, pet retention & reclamation, and education.

We need your help. They need your love.


MagicThis story is a tough one:  I took this picture last week. I could barely see through my tears…I was sobbing. I cry every time I look at it. I’m crying writing this right now.

THIS is why we are fighting so hard to stop all of this over population so these babies don’t have to suffer!

I took him out to the play yard for a little while (after he urinated on my leg when he was picked up, out of fear). He sat with Darlene and I and after lots of gentle pets, he started to let his guard down. Only to have to eventually be put back into his kennel. I don’t know who’s cries were louder…his or mine.

I got to name him. I chose “Magic” and he’s at Baldwin Park Shelter  A4863003

Please donate so we can continue to provide spay/neuter services, transport services, medical services and so on. A “like” on our page and on each of these stories is appreciated very much but we cannot continue providing all of this with only “likes.” Every, and I mean EVERY dollar helps. As bad as it may seem for me to be doing this, I am BEGGING each and every one of you to please send whatever you can. If all of you donate as little as $5.00 or even $1, with almost 5000 followers, imagine how many lives we can save. Imagine this boy running around playing fetch and not cowering in a shelter. Imagine the thousands just like him doing the same.  www.barkavenuefoundation.org/donate/
