While we at Bark & Co help apawximately 3,000 shelters and rescues group regularly, we like to take some time once in a while — monthly, to be exact — and honor one amazing group as our Shelter of the Month. This April, we’ve chosen…drumroll please…Downtown Dog Rescue, a truly fantastic organization in Southern California that works hard every day to care for pups and hoomans.

A little more about them and why they’re our SOTM!:
At BarkGood, Bark & Co’s dedicated pro-social arm, we focus on lending a paw to all pups and parents and Downtown Dog Rescue embodies this mission. From rescuing and adopting out pups in need…


Before and After: Alfred the senior DDR pup finds a home!

…to building a Shelter Intervention Program that kept over 2,000 pets from entering LA’s shelter system in only nine months (!), they are exemplifying the amazing work we like to support.
