Raising th-E BARR in Animal Rescue
EBARR was founded out of a recognized need in the East Bay Area for a high-quality rescue group that accepts cats and dogs (under certain conditions) from the community. Since our inception, we have successfully placed thousands of orphaned animals, many community surrenders or at risk of being euthanized at local animal shelters.
Our mission at East Bay Animal Rescue & Refuge (EBARR) is to provide a home for animals in need. With every animal saved and every animal who finds a forever home, we know there are hundreds who aren't so fortunate. This heartbreaking fact motivates our work and fills us with the resolve to move past every challenge in our way. We believe in the health and welfare of all animals, and we never discriminate against breed or size.
Since we are a foster-based program, there must be available space with one of our foster homes to accept an animal into our program. Once part of the EBARR family, all animals receive a complete veterinary package, training, socialization, love, and affection.
