"Shelter dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs.

If they were human, we would call them wise.

They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to

write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with


Don't pity a shelter dog.  Adopt one.  And be proud to

have their greatness by your side."




And of course, BARL believes the same is true for shelter cats.

Our cats have a

Cat Colony Room

and a Sun Porch....


Here kitty, kitty, kitty...


Visit some of our cats and kittens at Petsense in Brookhaven.  Follow the purrs to 937 Brookway Blvd.,  Mon-Sat 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. and Sun 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Wanna play?

We keep our animals entertained while they wait for you...

  • When in their kennels, the dogs get toys, chew bones and Kongs (sometimes filled with Peanut Butter).  Want to give to the animals?  Buy them some Kongs.
  • Beds are provided for all the dogs.
  • Dogs spend 3-4 hours outside each day in the play yards.  They splash in kiddie pools in the summer and have fun on their playground equipment all year long.  Yes, they have a sand box, tunnel, teeter totter, and all sorts of risers to climb on.  (They are spoiled.)
