New to the area, I found a puppy online that I wanted to adopt.

I was directed to this website, downloaded the application, and waited to hear back. About a week later, a volunteer (Heidi) brought the dog by for us to meet each other. I assumed she was leaving the puppy and I offered to pay her for it. She said I would receive a bill; if I paid the next day, she would bring the dog by, since I seemed suitable. I work from home, had no other pets at the time, own my house, have a large back yard.

I tried phoning the director Whitney the next day, and several times since I left messages for both of them. I also left an email message for the shelter.

I was hurt, disappointed and heartbroken. At the very least, I feel I deserved an explanation.

Whitney and BBAR have my respect. Everything is done with attention to detail and no corners are ever cut. There is never a question about how their donations are being used. I would not hesitate to trust them with money, an animal, or volunteer hours.

I LOVE this Rescue Group!! The animals get the BEST care no matter if they are 1 day old or 20yrs old... Everyone is SPOILED rotten!! They receive the best Vet care, grooming, food and attention. I have seen dogs that were taking their last breaths totally rebound under the excellent care & LOVE of this Group. They HONESTLY perform MIRACLES on a DAILY basis. Thank you Beyond Bars for ALL that you do!!

Beyond Bar Rescue is a wonderful place. Have been there a few times to donate and look at the animals. They aways look so happy and healty. I think Beyond Bar Rescue is a awesome place love the way they bring in the community to play and work with the animals to make sure they get enough exercise.

BBAR does great work and really cares for the doggies and their humans. They use every penny to care for the animals in their care. The folks that run it are selfless and relentless in their care for the precious animals. They are a great organization. I would recommend them (and HAVE) to anyone.

First of all I love this organization and what they do. I love to give my money when I know it is really going to be used on the animals and not some administrative salary. We actually met a friend while on vacation in Mexico that is really involved in Beyond Bars. She was such a great person and wonderful human being my husband and I knew this would be a great and noble charity. So on her birthday we made our first donation in her name. I was glad to make our new friend happy while helping the animals. I have made several donations since.
