After a stray cat gave birth in our house while we were away on a camping trip we had not idea how to deal with this. The mother and her kittens eventually made their way out of our kitchen and into our backyard. I found the bark ave. foundation online and called them up they offered to help us spay and neuter these cats and in doing so prevent more stray cats from being born. Most of the kittens have since left. The mother grew attached to us and when she hears us feed our indoor cat she runs up to the door to be fed. we have in some sort of way adopted this black beauty. I couldn't be more thankful to the org. and its work. being an animal lover and pet owner I understand the importance in avoiding over population of animals. The staff is wonderful you can feel their love for animals and their care. They were great at answering all of my questions.

This organization is exceptional in the scope of services it offers. It is one of the few that provides assistance to homeless people as well as those who live in poorer neighborhoods for spay/neuter and vaccination clinics. In addition, it sponsors an innovative program in which animals from local high-kill shelters are transported to areas of the country where they will find adoptive homes. Although not their main focus, they will never turn away a homeless animal, and will provide safe shelter for them
until an adoptive home can be found. Bark Avenue Foundation finds new and innovative ways to raise money for their programs and is very worthy charity to support.
