*What types of items do you take as donations?
Our “reserves” are small and every dollar we have is needed to continue to saving additional animals from high-kill shelters in addition to supporting them while they are in our fostering program, awaiting their furrever home.  This includes food, bowls, crates, toys, treats, collars, leashes, flea/tick/heartworm medication, toenail trimmings, spay/neuter, vaccinations (including rabies), general exam, fecal test, de-worming and other medical care, as necessary. By donating, your funds help us continue ensuring that fostering with Barks of Love is free to our foster parents. Without them, saving all of these lives would not be possible. If you would like to donate towards our rescue fund, we would be so grateful.  Every dollar counts and no amount is too small. Remember, donations are tax deductible!
