**WE ONLY ACCEPT ADOPTION AND FOSTER APPLICATIONS FROM THOSE RESIDING IN ORANGE COUNTY, CA AND CLOSELY SURROUNDING AREAS**

**NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS**

Since our inception in 2008, we've maintained our values as an organization that puts our dogs' welfare first. Everything we do is driven by our passion for matching families with the right dog. We emphasize compatibility and build mutually beneficial relationships to ensure dogs are placed responsibly and given a permanent home. We do everything we can to provide foster families with the right resources and advice to raise happy, loving dogs. In addition, we make continuous efforts to stay in touch with our families and follow the success of our canines.

Our status as a volunteer organization ensures that our most dedicated staff have an utmost passion for rescuing and caring for dogs. We make sure to share all of our combined knowledge to make the most out of a foster or ownership transition.

Barks of Love is one of the few animal rescue organizations to take a proactive approach in ensuring the welfare of our dogs. We manage the entire foster process from selection to training, to matching the dog with a permanent family. Once dogs are adopted, we encourage new owners to keep in touch with any questions or concerns. We want our dogs to stay in one permanent home for the rest of their lives and do everything in our power to ensure that they do.

Barks of Love has a diverse base of remote volunteers. We do not run out of a facility but through our loving foster homes. Our mobile events and recruiting methods spread our ideology that anyone can take some part in animal rescue across Orange County, California, whether it being volunteering, fostering, or donating.
