ambroseHi, I’m Ambrose! I’m a 4 year old girl, and I’ve been told I’m quite the cutie pie! I’m described by volunteers as “wonderful” and “sweet,” and I never turn down affection. I love spending time with my human friends, either going for a walk or soaking up the spring sunshine in the play yard. I aced my assessment with other dogs, and I’m used as a control dog at the shelter because of my good social skills and soft energy. I was left in a vacant house for quite some time and can’t wait to start my new life! Please come to BARCS and meet me today!


mantraWell, hello! My name is Mantra and I’m 1 year old. I’m a small boy who is looking for my forever home! I am very sweet and I have a lot of patience – see my pictures for proof! I love going for walks and receiving attention from staff and volunteers. I have such good doggie social skills that they use me as a “helper dog” to assess the other dogs! I also enjoy playing with my friends here in play group. I’m already neutered (whew, glad that’s over!) so that means I could go home with you TODAY! Come down to BARCS- I’ll be waiting for you!


babarHi everybody, I’m Babar! Everyone at the shelter thinks I’m wonderful – I’m a big, extremely sweet 9 year old boy, and I love being with people. My former owners reported that I’m good with children, and housebroken. I have played with both male and female dogs here at the shelter and I did very well. I’m always stylish whether I’m flashing my salt and pepper smile or even bunny ears. I’m already neutered so I could go home with you TODAY! The shelter is no place for a senior guy like me, so come down to BARCS and ask about me today. I can’t wait to meet my forever family! Could that be you?
