We are a no-kill organization based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We also operate in the Kootenays region of British Columbia and Edmonton, Alberta. We are committed to educating the public and ensuring Calgary and other areas remain responsible and free of BSL. We rescue dogs who are on death row at high kill shelters with the ultimate goal of placing them in loving, permanent homes. We advocate for dogs who are on death row solely due to the way they look.
Recognizing that every dog deserves a chance, BARCS will not discriminate on the basis of age, health or breed. We will dedicate every resource at our disposal to the physical, emotional and behavioral rehabilitation of each animal that we rescue.
We help match lonely people and families with homeless dogs into forever homes. Our goal is to have no more homeless dogs so the needless shelter killing can end. Without the No Kill Equation, thousands of dogs will loose their lives everyday.

Reason to get up
1)Importing dogs from the USA —- We have a very low population of dogs and our shelters are usually empty.
2)Rescue dogs should be free—– It costs us for transporting the dog, vetting including spay/ neuter, rabies, dhapp, microchip, worms/fleas and tick treatments, snap4dx testing, food, crate, collar and leash, jackets etc
3) What about homeless humans? There are many organizations that deal with humans. Our focus is dogs.
2) Reason to get exercise
1) Dog requires care and affection and will seek out affection giving you companionship.
2) A dog needs exercise and will misbehave if their needs are not met.
3) A dog will instinctively protect you against danger as well as alert you to anyone not belonging in the immediate vicinity.
