Barky Pines Seeks Donations

Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary is growing, but it needs the community’s help.

Since it began in March 2015, the nonprofit has rescued 143 animals. Almost all of them came from the Palm Beach County animal shelter and would have otherwise been euthanized due to illness or injury. The animals are provided the best veterinary care, training, nurturing and love through the nonprofit’s owners and a handful of foster families. In order to help save more dogs, Barky Pines plans to expand to a new five-acre location.

But to do so, funding is needed. The current goal is to raise $25,000 by June 12 to cover the mortgage downpayment on the land. After that will come a building to provide space and medical care for rescued animals. For more information, or to donate, call (561) 402-1451 or visit
