Barks of Love is recognized as a major resource for the welfare of abandoned and abused animals in Orange County, CA. Our goal is to lower euthanasia rates in all animal shelters. There is a desperate need for rescue facilities and organizations as an increasing number of dogs are being abandoned and neglected each day, especially when dog breeding and dog fighting are increasing at a staggering rate. We provide our services in Orange County, California; however, we also extend our services to dogs in need from surrounding counties of Southern California when our available resources permit us to do so. We rehabilitate and re-train dogs that are able to qualify for adoption and a majority of the dogs we work with need a new permanent home. All dogs are kept in private foster homes where they receive the medical care and affection they require until a "forever home" is found that is deemed suitable by a Barks of Love Board Member. The adoption process consists of screening applicants, dog "meet and greets", and a home check. At least 75% of the organization's time and effort is spent on rescue and rehabilitation.
