“Bark Avenue Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to significantly reducing pet overpopulation through spay/neuter, humane education, rescue and re-homing and community outreach.

Because of LA's cultural diversity as well as the myriad of languages and cultural beliefs, we find it is critical to do aggressive spay/neuter outreach in order to address the pet overpopulation crisis in our city.

Los Angeles has been identified as one of the cities having the highest euthanasia rates in the country. With the current economic crisis, people are being forced to abandon their beloved pets at a record rate. These two situations challenge us to urgently address every opportunity to save animals’ lives through Bark Avenue Foundation’s programs and outreach.

Our goal is to serve as a community resource for people (and their animals) in underserved areas in the greater Los Angeles area. We specifically chose to locate in South LA, not far from Skid Row, the USC Campus and the industrial neighborhoods south of downtown. By being in close proximity to the people and animals that need us most, we are able to be a visible and viable community resource for them and are able to provide spay/neuter information, spay/neuter access, and information on humane education, vaccinations, proper nutrition and proper pet care.”

What a great place!

This shelter is wonderful. The dogs have a large play area to hang out in and socialize, instead of being caged up all day. They just opened a new location on Main Street that offers boarding, day care, grooming and training for your pet. All proceeds go to help fund the shelter. These people are amazing!

Great rescue/shelter

This place is a great place to rescue a dog or cat from. The dogs are super sweet and walked frequently - they also live in large kennels so aren't too cooped up. I've volunteered here many times walking dogs (which i definitely suggest doing - the dogs are sooo happy to get walked!) The staff is amazing and very loving to all of the pets there.
