Welcome to Wolfcentric - Scroll down for updates and DOGS!

I work with dogs and hang out with dogs all day. Most dogs on here are currently being housed at BARC(Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition), where I have been working since 9/11. BARC is a privately owned no-kill animal shelter located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. The facility can comfortably house a maximum of 25 dogs w/ individual runs. Most dogs we get, are either strays from the street, owner surrendered due to financial/personal difficulties and some, due to the new NY housing/landlord lease policies. We also rescue dogs from city pounds and kill shelters.


** Checkout this teaser trailer for my long overdue documentary about some BARC dogs. I have filmed over 200++ dogs as they come through BARC and find new homes, over the course of 6 years. Its quite difficult to put all this dogs life in one 46 minute documentary, but it will eventually happen.

Check out my dog ORBIT doing back-to-back tricks. I rescued him from the ACC in Harlem in may of 2001, when he was about 8 months old. I have a series of pictures of him doing his deed to about 30 different landmark attractions around the US when my band took him on a 2 month tour of America. He has some amazing shots of pooping on the lawn across from where JFK got shot, him peeing on the gates of Graceland, him locked up inside the kennel of Disneyworld and riding the tram. I'm going to scan them and post it soon.

* Stray dog 101

Finding a Stray Dog
by John Chilton

If you live in lighter residential areas and suburb areas of your community, chances are you have probably seen someone's lost dog wandering around the neighborhood. You probably think about the family that the pet may belong to. Most of us want to be able to help get that dog back to its family, but may be hesitant to take responsibility of the situation. If you follow a few guidelines, handling these situations don't have to be overwhelming.

First off, you should never approach a stray dog if you have any concerns about your safety getting involved in the situation. If you are uncomfortable approaching it, call animal control and have them handle it. Most of the time the first place people check after they are unable to find their dog by searching locally is animal control.

If you are comfortable approaching the dog, once you've secured the animal, check to see if it has a number, or address, or GPS tracking device first. If no identifying items are found begin by asking around your neighborhood and immediate area. Most of the time, the dog probably lives within a few street of your residence.

If you and your neighbors are unable to determine the pet's owner, and you do not wish to take the animal to a shelter, you can make some flyers and post them in the area. You can call your local animal control and give them your name, number, address and description of the dog so they can notify the owners to get in contact with you if they are contacted.

Check around to see if the owner's placed flyers for it and check the lost dog section of your local news paper.

If time goes by and the owner is not located, the only choices are to take the dog to your local animal shelter or keep and care for the animal as your own pet or until the owner is eventually found.

More than likely someone is searching for their loved one. Reunited a pet, which sometimes is viewed as a family member by some is one of the greatest things you can do for someone. Hopefully if you run across a lost pet you can help it find its way home.
