We are a handful of ladies who love dogs. Separately, we have all been rescuing and rehoming dogs in need for years. All of us have shared the dream of having our own rescue organization. At our first meeting in early 2017, we discussed our personal goals and what we hope to achieve together. Meredith shared her knowledge from working with other local rescues, assisting at Westside Animal Hospital and currently being Dr. Brubaker's "right hand man". With Meredith's wealth of knowledge in how to run a rescue organization and everyone's mutual desire to save dogs, we knew we were on the road to making our goals happen.
Shortly after that Meredith Trout created Barkabull, we opened a Facebook page (along with BarkaBull's Foster Network page) and we were off. With passion, drive and more than plenty of dogs in need of homes, we have been busy! Each Saturday, we hold an adoption event at The Burrowing Owl (a vegan dive bar), from 2-5pm. Our dogs come from owner surrenders and we also travel to high kill shelters from California, Kansas, New Mexico & most recently Texas. Many of these shelters have very little foot traffic and they are most always at 100% capacity. We do not have a kennel so our small group of foster volunteers is the only reason we can save lives. Each week we get at least 3 requests from owners looking to rehome their adult dogs. With 60 years combined dog experience, we first try to help them keep their dogs. If that doesn't work, we will happily feature them on our pages and get them neutered/spayed, UTD on vaccines and place them when their perfect home is found.
Together, with community help, we believe we are making a positive impact in our world. What more can you ask for in life?
