BARC Adoption Policies
1. All adopters must be a minimum of 21 years old.
2. All potential adopters are required to fill out an application and in some cases have a home visit prior to adoption. We work hard at placing all of our rescued animals in the best suitable home possible. We want to ensure the absolute best fit to ensure these pets will be adopted to their forever home and will never have to worry about being homeless again.
3. All of our rescue animals are fully vetted as well as spayed and neutered at the time of adoption unless there is a
medical reason or they are too young to be spayed or neutered at the time, in which a spay/neuter contract will
have to be signed. Because of the severe pet overpopulation in our area we want all pet owners to be responsible in spaying and neutering their pets. Therefore it is our policy not to adopt to families that have unaltered pets.
4. In general, we do require a fence for dogs unless there are special circumstances. Most dogs have a lot of energy and need enough exercise to release that energy. We also want the dog to have a safe place to play in which a fenced yard is most appropriate. If there is a question about whether a fence is required for a particular dog, please make a note on the application.
