**Interested adopters should visit BARC shelter. We are located in 253 Wythe Avenue, in the Williamsburg part of Brooklyn. There are more dogs available than our Web listings indicate. We advise people to come and walk some of our dogs and play with our cats to get a better idea of which animal would be best for them. We are open for adoption, Tuesday through Saturday, 12pm - 5pm. Please come at least 2 hours BEFORE closing.
Dogwalking hours are: Monday to Friday - mornings:9am to 12:30pm and 5pm to 7:30pm. Saturday and Sunday: 9am to 1pm.
Cat loft is open from Tuesday-Saturday from 12pm - 5pm
We require an adoption fee of $150. This covers, in part, the extensive medical care all of our pets receive before adoption, including:
* examination and treatment by a veterinarian
* spaying or neutering
* current vaccinations against distemper, kennel cough (dogs) and rabies (if the pet is old enough)
* testing for feline leukemia and feline AIDS or heartworm (dogs)
* deworming, and
* microchipping (dogs)
All adopters are required to complete and sign BARC's adoption agreement.
