  • Patting and cleaning

  • Feeding and soothing
  • Digging and planting

Visit our adoption center in Ubud and lend a hand while you are there. The residents awaiting adoption all love to receive cuddle and this simple act also helps to prepare them for adoption. Taking them for a walk, giving them a bath, de-ticking are all things that both support BARC and the dogs.

Drop by and spend some quality time with the animals.


If you live in Bali or are staying for an extend period of time, why not become a foster parent?

Foster care is a critical part of getting puppies socialized and ready for adoption, it gives them time away from the centre where they can be subject to viruses that their little immune systems are not able to cope with. Foster helps to keep them safe and healthy till they are fully vaccinated and sterilized, as well as giving you and them some unconditional love.
