Thank you for considering a donation to the Bay Area Rescued Kanines (BARK) of Contra Costa County. Our organization is a 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs – but it also means that we receive no government funding. We rely on fundraising events and generous donations from people and small businesses in the community to help us cover our veterinary bills and foster care expenses.

There are many different ways you can make a donation to BARK and help us rescue, foster, rehabilitate, and socialize unwanted, abandoned or abused pets and find them loving, permanent homes:

  Donations - Thank You

Through a very generous donation we have recently raised enough money to file our paperwork for nonprofit 501(c)(3) status... but more is needed!

Please consider making a monetary donation to our organization in the form of a check made payable to "BARK of Contra Costa County". Checks can be mailed directly to BARK or delivered in person to either Doggie Depot of Brentwood or any of our local fundraising events (please visit our Events calendar for a list of upcoming events & scheduled locations).

Bay Area Rescued Kanines of Contra Costa County
PO Box 1955
Brentwood, CA 94513

Doggie Depot
1300 Central Blvd, Suite E
Brentwood, CA 94513

Once our nonprofit 501(c)(3) status is approved by the IRS, we plan to accept donations through our web site using credit cards and PayPal and will be eligible to receive donations through employer payroll deduction.

  Donations - Gift Cards

bullet  Gift Cards  bullet

We weren't kidding earlier when we said we need help with expenses... pet food, dog crates and beds, blankets, towels, flea treatments, chew toys & bones, laundry detergent and other cleaning products can get VERY expensive!

Donated gift cards for local stores like Costco, PetSmart, Pet Food Express, Petco, Target and Wal-Mart can really help us cover expenses. Even gift cards for local gas stations (travel expenses) and office supply stores like Office Depot and Staples can help us reduce the costs for office supplies and postage stamps.


Please contact Randae, our Treasurer & Fundraising Manager, at (925) 516-2275 or by email at for more information on ways you can help!
