Just like adopting a dog, with one key difference…
We understand that Bali can be a transient place for westerners. You may be living here for one year, that extends into twenty. Or you may be gone in the second year. We also believe that adopting one of our puppies is a life-time commitment.
Therefore we offer our Long Term Foster program to westerners who are unable to guarantee they can offer that life-time commitment.
With a Long Term Foster placement you will become the guardian to one of our adult dogs that, through no fault of their own, have never found their forever homes. Then, should the day ever arise that you need to leave the Island, you can rest easy knowing that the dog can be returned to BARC.
They truly do come in all shapes and sizes; older dogs in need of a retirement home, timid dogs that just needs some love and compassion, dogs whose coat simply didn’t return full and strong, females who arrived with a litter of puppies but never found their homes, three legged or one eyed dogs or even distemper survivors with a small twitch. There are so many great personalities! So many truly loving dogs!
The BARC Sanctuary offers a home for these animals, but at the end of the day, even the BARC Sanctuary cannot compare with the one-on-one love, care and attention offered in a private home.
Every dog deserves the chance to experience that, and your offer to join our Long Term Foster program may be their only chance to experience this.
