BARC, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating Bernese Mountain Dogs from dog brokers, dog auctions, puppy mills, and any other dangerous, exploitative or abusive situation. BARC, Inc. places these dogs in loving pet homes as spayed or neutered companions.

to see some of our Available Bernese Mountain Dogs!
(We do not post ALL of our dogs due to the incoming rate,
but please fill out an application & we’ll match you to the dog best suited to join your family!)
Although safe, these dogs may be undergoing medical treatment, temperament testing, and/or foster placement for socialization. If you are interested in one of our special babies, we ask that you read the FAQ’s and then complete the adoption application. Questions and applications can be sent to our Board Member, Lisa Florin.
We have extremely an extremely high volume of applications to review and are very serious about where our rescues are placed. Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive, we are no longer able to reply personally to each one. However, we do hope to contact you when we have an available rescue that might be a fit.
Our rescues are fostered throughout the United States. Transportation arrangements of BARC babies to their new homes are the responsibility of the adopters.
Please also note, many of our rescues are placed quickly and don’t even make it to our website for posting…that’s a great thing!
Prior to placement all BARC dogs are: spayed or neutered; microchipped; checked for heartworms and parasites and treated if necessary; brought up-to-date on all vaccinations, in some cases boosters may be necessary; and are on heartworm and flea/tick preventives. In the event that a puppy is too young or a dog too ill to be spayed or neutered prior to placement, the contract will require the adopter to spay/neuter the dog within a reasonable timeframe.
