About Us

SouthBARK was founded in 2010 with the goal of decreasing the total number of healthy dogs being killed each year in our shelters by providing safe and caring homes for them.  We are 100% volunteer and every penny we raise goes directly to the dogs we save. SouthBARK relies completely on donations from the public.

We do not have a facility. All of our dogs are kept in loving foster homes where they receive the medical care and affection they require until a “forever home” is found.

SouthBARK has a diverse base of volunteers and we welcome help in any form – from driving a dog to the vet to cross posting a shelter dog’s picture. While our dogs are fostered in the South, we have volunteers across the U.S. We believe that anyone can, and should, take part in animal rescue. Together, we can “Move ‘Em Out!”

SouthBARK is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. Donations are tax deductible.

To contribute to our mission, donations can be sent via mail to:
SouthBARK PO Box
 11844, Pensacola, Fl 32524






We have had a wonderful experience with SouthBark. They helped us find the perfect furbaby for our family. Great people with exceptionally large hearts and extremely passionate about what they do!!

They are the best caring people you would ever want to meet and they love the dogs and cats as if they were their own.

My house suddenly was dead quiet after 20 years when my 2 oldest cats passed within weeks of each other. I wasn't up for another kitten but my recluse cat and I needed something. Looking to adopt a small puppy (to bring recluse out), I searched online to rescue. But to my surprise the picture of my Rylee (lil bela) a 3 and a half month lab/shepherd mix is the one I kept going back to. Took me a week or so to decide, though I now know I was in love at first sight. I can't thank Jenny and the others enough at SouthBark for raising this sweet girl from 9 days old. She is so social and loving and I know it is all because of you. It's been 3 months since we adopted each other and I can't tell you how much more I laugh, smile, am happy all because of her. I can't recommend SouthBark enough. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
