“Me and my husband just adopted a beautiful kitten at this shelter. We were helped by Michelle, who was very kind and excellent at her job. I could tell she has so much compassion for the animals here at this shelter and goes above and beyond to make sure they are going to a good home. She handles everything professionally and is very kind and patient with us. She took care of everything to make sure our kitten is heathy and ready to go. I was very pleased with the service provided here and would recommend this place to anyone who are looking to adopt their new fur babies.”

Find out who we are and what we do
One day seven people got together for lunch, They were City of Parlier Mayor Alma Beltran, City Councilman Trino Pimental, Michelle Lopez, Nick Prado, Brenda Prado, Joy Rothholz and Heather Rothholz.
The seven of them began speaking about the overpopulation of cats and dogs in the community, the lack of low cost spay & neuter programs, how animals are treated poorly by those without resources. We discussed the need for a facility to help address these concerns, our idea of a no kill rescue would be one that could serve as a community resource, educating the youth and adults about the importance of proper care for animals and to spay & neuter their pets.
We also discussed the needs of veterans, we need a program to assist active Military Veterans with the challenges they face when they get deployed. So, we came up with Bambi Army – Rescue of K9’S (BARK) a dream was developed, we decided it was time to make our dream come true.
Eventually (BARK) received our 501 C3 non- profit status this has propelled us to work harder to make the dream a reality.
(BARK) is a licensed non-profit no kill rescue, we aim to become a rescue where veterans will no longer have to give up their animals companions due to deployment. (BARK) will support our troops and will welcome their family pet into our boarding facility for the length of the veteran’s deployment. (BARK) aim to reduce the stray population and finding them homes, we also would like to keep our community pets safe by offering low cost vaccinations and micro-chipping services.
To make our dream a reality we need community support and financial contributions to make our animal rescue in our area a long term reality. (BARK) meets a real need in our area that previously had no animal rescue or shelter of any type for abandoned animals and Military Vet Pets.
