About

Bark Avenue Foundation (BAF) is a Los Angeles nonprofit organization dedicated to animal welfare.

BAF partners with communities and with other nonprofit organizations, understanding that collaboration is critical to its success. BAF prioritizes spay/neuter funding and programs, to stop the pet overpopulation problem at its source: unintended litters. It also supports pet owners, particularly those who are in at-risk and under-served populations (including the homeless), focused on pet retention and reclamation. These services include (1) free and subsidized spay/neuter (2) providing free pet ID tags; (3) offering gently used bedding, collars, leashes and other goods for those in need; and (4) providing pet food and emergency medical care on a case-by-case basis. BAF also promotes humane education by offering quality teaching programs for schools and children serving grades K-5. This program addresses the growing need for respect and compassion for companion animals and all living creatures within our world.
