Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Mission Statement: Broken Arrow Rescue Community (“BARC”), is a nonprofit, no-kill, volunteer dog rescue organization serving the homeless pets of Oklahoma. At BARC, we strive to rescue homeless pets regardless of the circumstance, but place great emphasis on saving shelter pets in danger of being euthanized. Once rescued, we undertake a rigorous process to find our pets a permanent home with a loving, responsible and committed family. To do so, we utilize a comprehensive adoption process that includes vetting the potential adopters as well as educating potential adopters on the responsibilities/seriousness of pet ownership. By doing so, we hope to ensure our pets will never have to face the situation that lead them to us in the first place. All animals in our care are spayed and neutered and receive any and all necessary veterinarian treatment and are placed in nurturing foster homes until they are ready to find their forever home. At BARC, it is our mission to provide unwavering care and treatment for all animals, regardless of age, breed or other characteristics. Furthermore, we remain committed to the well-being of our rescued pets even beyond the adoption process. To accomplish our goal of providing homeless and at need animals with a second chance, we strive to continuously foster relationships with area shelters and other rescue organizations to develop the network of support necessary to make our mission of providing a better life to pets in need an attainable goal. Barc Broken Arrow Rescue Corp. is a 501(c)(3) animal rescue group, incorporated Feb. 15, 2017.

BARC is truly a RESCUE Group. At one time I myself was looking for a fur baby, mine had passed away. After speaking with Jamie Cope whom is BARC she was such an inspiration and the lengths she goes to in helping every animal! It's unbelievable the love she has for so many animals left with zero hope. Since then I have volunteered as much as possible and have had the joy of being a foster mother a few times now and it changes you. Honestly Broken Arrow is truly fortunate to have Jamie and all the other volunteers who every day we hear, find another animal in desperate need. She's there, always!!! Saying goodbye to the babies I've fostered is hard for myself, but then we get pictures from the wonderful forever homes that Jamie has found and my heart is at ease. This group is professional and always the animal comes first. There will always be a need for more help, too many animal owners around us that do not treat these wonderful animals with respect and love. It's been a absolute joy to be a part of this Rescue Group and our dream is that one day all the animal neglect will fade. Jamie Cope has saved thousands of fur babies. BARC CARES!!!

I adopted my dog from Barc. Jamie saved her from certain death placing her and her two-day-old puppy with a fantastic foster mom who loved them both. It saddens me to think that I might have missed out on this awesome dog if it weren't for this group. Jamie is a hero to me, and I will be forever grateful to her organization.

I am a member of a few rescue groups. I can honestly say everyday you see all the animals in need of new homes or foster is needed to help in Rehabilitation of a pet that was returned because the owner didn’t do research before adopting or purchase.
Then it’s BARC to the rescue. BARC has helped with giving animals the second chance they need. I can say Jamie Cope does so much for all the animals in need. If you have a fur baby you love more than anything else on this earth. Do your fur baby a favor. Donate to BARC in your fur babies name. Help another poor fur baby that doesn’t get the love you and your baby does. If you can give food it goes to Help nurture and care for one who is just learning what a foster family can be. If you can give money it goes for spaying and neutering or other needed vet care.
I’m fortunate that I’m a lucky woman who sometimes can help and get the fur babies to another Journey to a better and more beautiful life. BARC
If you love animals. BARC you’re amazing and thank you for all you do to help out these wonderful babies.
Jamie Cope ever since I was added to your rescue I’m so proud of all BARC does. Thank you

BARC is a fabulous rescue group that focuses on rescuing animals from Broken Arrow, OK area. However, they are always willing to step in and help other animals in need throughout the Tulsa area. They are a incredibly compassionate group, helping advocate for spay and neuter laws as well. BARC has helped place dogs with specials needs, puppies, and elderly dogs. They are also very good stewards of the donations they receive. BARC hosts “meet and greet” adoption events to help their foster dogs find homes. They also do various fundraising events throughout the year. I highly recommend BARC rescue as a group you should consider volunteering for at events as well as making monetary donations to them.

I first met Jamie Cope, the founder of BARC, several years ago when I saw donations needed for 3 dogs boarding to save them from a kill shelter, on our Neighborhood Network. Since that time she has come to my rescue in dealing with lost dogs to starving dogs (at the hand of their owners.) I was impressed with her love and dedication for animals in need, that I decided to volunteer with BARC. Everyone in this organization goes above and beyond to save these fur babies and place them with families that will love and provide them with their forever homes.

I volunteer in several capacities for BARC and have witnessed the passion and commitment evident amongst the members of the organization. BARC strives to help as many animals possible and all the while, help improve the environment at the Broken Arrow Animal Shelter. BARC has also stepped in to help citizens that need help with their animals. (provide food, vet care, foster homes etc.). Often, they take injured or sick animals, providing them vet care and a future for a new, safe and loving home. I wish all non profits were as genuine and pure of heart as BARC.

BARC is my favorite non profit group in Broken Arrow, Ok because of my love for rescues. I have personally witnessed the devotion of BARC’s president Jamie Cope towards animals that are rescues. BARC does so much for the Broken Arrow community and helps other groups when needed. I remember last year after the flooding in Houston when BARC worked long hours helping with the arrival of rescues and then working on donations for those rescue animals coming from Texas. BARC works tirelessly for the animals and also on fundraising to keep BARC operating so that future rescues can benefit. I am a proud supporter of BARC and what BARC does for our community.

I have known about BARC and the owner Jamie for two years and commend her efforts towards rescuing animals. BARC not only rescues animals; but, assists other rescue groups when needed. BARC works tirelessly and at times with limited resources because of Jamie's love for animals. BARC is an asset to the Broken Arrow community; but, more importantly to the animals rescued because of BARC. Jamie's tireless devotion is why I am a proud supporter of BARC. I have volunteered with BARC in regards to fundraising such as yard sales and adoption events and have witnessed the long hours and devotion that goes into BARC. I am so thankful for BARC in the Broken Arrow community.

This rescue took in a 12 year old husky with bite marks and decided to give him a second chance. His neck looked horrible when they took him in, but they nursed him to health and adopted him out to me. That's where he became my best friend. I had never had a dog before, and I am glad that I got mine from BARC. Any question I had was answered, any doubt I had reassured, they had a long list of certified experts (trainers, dog psychologists) that they could refer to me for any of my needs.
Thanks to this rescue, a dog that would have probably been left for dead or put down because he was "too old" and not a puppy, got a second chance. That second chance was the reason I met one of my best friends.

I can't tell you enough amazing things about the BARC rescue. Jamie and her team are the most loving and caring people and will do everything possible to save animals out of the local shelter. I have never seen such compassion with an organization.

I lost my precious hound, Charlie, to cancer, and my beagle, Victoria, was so lonely that I knew I had to find her a friend. I stumbled upon a photo of little Bruno on Facebook. He had been an owner-surrender, and was in a BARC foster home. Victoria and I were able to meet Bruno at a park, and later keep him overnight for a visit before I made a decision about adopting him. Needless to say, he didn’t go back to the foster home! I am so grateful that BARC rescued my little boy and kept him safe for 7 long months before I found him. Jamie and her group of volunteers are the best!

Jamie works 24/7 to save these animals and find them homes where they will be safe and cared for. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are prepared to have an animals lifelong commitment. I have two rescue dogs from BARC and they are the perfect fit to our family. I could not recommend them more.
