Putting Our Best Paws Forward - Barky Pines Animal Rescue
Here at Doggie Dailies, we believe there is no better feeling than helping those in need. That's why every quarter we pick a new charity to donate a portion of our proceeds to!
We’re now in our third quarter of the year (July-September) and this quarter we're excited to be donating to Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary.
Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary rescues the most urgent pets from their county shelter. The animals they rescue find themselves there by owner surrender, confiscation, or by being a stray that no one claimed. Often times they are sick, injured, geriatric, or in need in of major surgeries.
Barky Pines rescues these animals from the shelter and cares for them on their farm in South Florida. They work to rehabilitate each animal physically and emotionally. They live on site with the animals so are available at all times to tend to them.
Since being founded in September 2014, Barky Pines has rescued 405 dogs, 13 cats, and over 100 farm animals.
In 2017 they purchased farmland to expand their operations in order to be able to save more lives. They are working hard to clear the land and build more housing so they can help even more animals.
In addition to rescuing animals and running the farm, Barky Pines also works to educate young people in their community by speaking to classes and having them come to the farm to help care for the animals. They hope these efforts and their participation in other local events helps to play a role in stopping the cycle of animal abuse and discard.
Our friends at Barky Pines work hard each and every day to care for the animals and better the farm, but they can’t do it alone!
