Dogs needing home assessment foster in October 2021  

Dogs who come from the Bark Ark in Bosnia have only got a limited assessment available and while this is informed and done by the experienced shelter owner we require every dog to be assessed in home foster once in the UK. This applies to dogs who have got a home lined up as much as to those who are not spoken for yet. If you would like to offer one of them a temporary foster home in Cornwall/Devon we would be delighted to hear from you.

If you would like to foster with view to adopt we may consider this option too.

Robbie

 

HAS A RETIREMENT FOSTER HOME 

 

Mixed Breed Oldie who was with an old lady until she died this year. His experience with people is limited. The shelter owner had to take him out of the busy shelter because Robbie did not cope. He was very scared of everything and found it extremely stressful. So the shelter owner took him into his dog room where Robbie shared with some other dogs.

Angel

 

Angel's rescue story is a very sad yet common one. She was a stray and starving. So she tried to catch a chicken. The people caught her...by sticking  a pitchfork into her neck! Bark Ark was called and they did all they could for Angel to survive. And by a miracle she did! This was back in 2018. Angel became a long termer at the shelter. Let's change her luck!
