Bahamas Alliance For Animal Rights and Kindness
Saving Animals & Finding Homes
Baark! was formed in late October 2009 by small group of animal advocates after a letter written by 14 year old Kirsh Duncombe to the Bahamas Tribune Editor.
It was revealed that every Friday morning up to 50 animals are euthanized each week at the Canine Control Unit, known locally as The ‘Pound’. This number is made up of animals surrendered by their owners and strays trapped by Pound staff. We wanted to significantly reduce this number in addition to the amount of stray/roaming animals on the streets.
What Drives Us
2018 Spay and Neuter Goal
We are now celebrating our 9th year and are proud of our achievements to date:
We’ve provided more than 8000 free or subsidized spay/neuters of dogs and cats.
Provided interactive education for over 500 children
Over the years we have assisted on 9 different family islands in the Bahamas – Inagua, Rum Cay, San Salvador, Andros, Abaco, Eleuthera, Long Island, Bimini, and the Berry Islands
In 2017 our out island clinic work will include Long Island, San Salvador, Bimini, The Berry Islands, Abaco and Andros
Using the highly publicized statistic that one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in 6 six year, so far we have prevented over ONE MILLION unwanted puppies and kittens being born into a life of suffering.
