Animal Adoptions

BAARS, the BAARS Adoptions Coordinator, this website, and the BAARS newsletter "Behind BAARS" offer help with adoptions as an information service only. All adoption-related negotiations and agreements are solely between present owners and potential adopters, and BAARS will not get involved if there are any disputes between owners and adopters. BAARS does not guarantee health, suitability, temperament, or availability of any animals listed, and accepts no responsibility other than to inform its membership of animals up for adoption.

How to Adopt or Surrender an Animal
To adopt a listed animal, fill out the Adopt or Surrender form. 
We will send you contact information for the animal. The owners interview potential adopters and to decide whom to adopt to. All arrangements are solely between the owner and the adopter. Please email after adopting successfully, so we can unlist the animal.

Supporting BAARS Adoptions

If you adopt an animal through BAARS, or if you are listing an animal with BAARS Adoptions, consider a donation to BAARS Adoptions to help us cover the cost of veterinary bills, supplies, and food for animals left with BAARS.
