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.

The NY Post wrote about BARC yesterday

The sunday edition of the NY Post had an article on BARC and single people walking dogs to pick people up.

The hottest pick-up scene in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, isn't at The Woods or Hotel Delmano. It's the dog shelter on North 1st Street and Wythe Avenue, where hipsters and Wall Street bankers alike have discovered a single man's best friend: the stray dog.

BARC opens its doors to volunteers to exercise its 27 dogs Monday through Thursday evenings.

The managers aren't blind to the selfish motives behind the seeming good Samaritans.

"A lot of people won't admit it because they want you to think they're there because it's a good thing to do," said BARC founder Vinny Spinola. "But I hear girls saying, 'The guys are going to love me with this pitbull,' and guys talking about how walking a dog is a chick magnet."
