Our Story

The Bali Adoption & Rehabilitation Centre (BARC) is a non-profit organization that has rescued, rehabilitated over 4,000 dogs and presently house over 300 rescued street dogs and puppies here in Bali. 
We aim to relieve suffering, starvation, abuse and neglect of these animals with the help of volunteers, adoptions, sponsorship and donations.

At BARC we provide medical care, food, rehabilitation, bedding, sterilization, vaccinations and a whole lot of love to all dogs and puppies within the centre. We educate the local school children on how to care for and respect animals and hold fundraisers to raise awareness amongst the Balinese and worldwide community.

We want all our dogs to have a long, loving and sustainable life. Adoption and foster care is available to suitable homes, however some of our dogs are not adoptable. Some have lost limbs or suffered severe illness and are still in recovery. It is these dogs that will live out their retirement with us. To sustain this care we rely on sponsorships and donations from people near and far to ensure each of our furry friends have a healthy and happy life.

BARC runs its own clinic called Good Karma, in central Ubud, where the animals receive medical care, food and shelter. Good Karma is where all dogs are physically and mentally assessed, then treated including full vaccinations and sterilizations. Even if a dog has the slightest chance at life we will do everything possible to give the animal a chance of good health and a happy life.
