Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BARC is changing the way it operates until further notice.
Pets can still be adopted and lost pets can still be claimed, but this is now strictly by appointment. All visitors will be required to provide their full name, contact phone number, and evidence of address so that we can abide by Government recommendations to ensure accurate visitor record keeping. Unessential entrance to our building will be limited and we ask people to respect our request for some people to wait outside or in their car to limit the number of people entering our facility.
BARC is still accepting surrendered pets, however we ask that if possible you contact us prior to arrange a suitable time to bring your pet in.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer our services to residents of Melbourne and Mitchell Shire who have Stage 3 Restrictions in place.
