barkabull dog rescue


about us

Dog rescue takes a special type of person, the long hours, the thankless nights, the tears and heartbreak for the ones, despite all your efforts you couldn't save. However, the look in the eyes and the expressions of those you were able to save keep you waking up every morning to do it all over again. BarkaBull is a dog rescue in Colorado Springs dedicated to saving as many dogs as possible from high kill shelters from across the country. BarkaBull specializes in rescuing and re-homing bully breeds, we are able to pull a wide variety of dogs from Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything in between. 

Barkabull is 100% foster based, which means we don't have a shelter or a building in which we can utilize to help these dogs. We rely solely on the goodness of those in town who open up their houses and hearts to these wonderful dogs. Our main adoption events vary, but we try to hold one every other weekend. However, with the help of our fosters we are able to do individual meet and greets during the week allowing us to have the flexibility to find the perfect forever homes! We cannot do what we do without the support of the community and the fosters who step up every week when dogs in need find their way to us.

Please note we are 100% foster based. We can only take surrenders if we have availability, which sometimes we do not (especially during the summer and holiday time periods). We do not take previous bite cases and behavior issues will be addressed on a case by case basis. If we cannot take in your dog under the rescue, we are more than willing to do a courtesy post for you.
