WE ARE RESCUERS, REHABILITATORS, STORY-TELLERS, AND FAMILY-GROWERS.

We pride ourselves in taking discarded Lives into our own – Healing them – and righting the wrongs heaped upon those innocents.

We are Humans. We are flawed. And that is why we rely on each other. We are at our Finest as a Collective…and that is the place we serve THEM best. We know that THEY need Our Help – Just like we need YOUR Help. That is why we are Community Faced. To Educate, Negotiate, Support, Empower, and Enable individuals to Help their own…and then Assist Others.

THAT is the way we GROW. THAT is the way we Save MORE Lives. We will not adopt our way out of pet overpopulation in L.A. This NOT a shell game, nor a shuffle. We must go Wider. Deeper.

WE ARE A RESPONSIBLE. ETHICAL. ANIMAL. LEAGUE.

WE ARE THE REAL. THEY ARE THE BARK.

{[ WHAT IS LOVE? ]} Handsome Howard Jones was found on the streets of South Central, abandoned, matted, and sickly. Howard was fostered with the lovely likes of Maria as The REAL Bark searched him out a new future. And guess what this kid found? A most Loving, Charming, Kind Family that says Howard can stop looking for a place to rest his beautiful head, because he is H-O-M-E. NEVER is the time you give up Hope....NEVER. Thanks + Congrats to The Skinner-Henley Family for Adopting this Sweet Street Survivor. Thanks to Courtney, Allister, and Lydia for recently Fostering, and help bringing Big Joy into Howard's world.

{[ GUS PLUS ]} This Handsome kid, Gus, the Merle mini-Aussie Shep mix, has found his Family. Not only are his humans all Awesome, but Gus has a lookalike big brother named Shadow that he Adores. You might Remember that Gus was surrendered to The REAL Bark from a sweet woman who was now living in her van and could no longer take care of him. She wanted the BEST for him, so that is exactly what we went in search of. Congrats and Thanks Tom, Meara, Audrey, and Shadow. Gus picked his New Family, Friends, and Advocates WELL. Gus: Happy New Life, kiddo. We LOVE seeing that smile on your face. Thanks All. Have a GREAT Day. www.therealbark.org/ ... See MoreSee Less

{[ THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE ]} Poor James Wagney. He is going to have to decide. So many choices. You see James was one of The Magnifi-scent Seven pups that The REAL Bark recently pulled from our Bakersfield trip. And already - after putting this charismatic Star's pic online - he is being FLOODED with offers and requests....for Adoption! In fact, some of the 'Best Fit Candidates' will be meeting James TODAY at our Mobile Adoption Event at the Burbank Pet Plaza, in Burbank - of course - from 11:00 - 3:00. James and his equally dashing Canine-Buds will be there and looking forward to meeting their New, Finest & Best Co-Star for their upcoming Role of a Lifetime. If that sounds like YOU then please come on down, and let the casting begin. Thanks. Great Day, All. *Handsome James pic by Aaron Short. BPP is @ 1080 W. Alameda Ave. Burbank. 91506 ...
