About Us

What we do

The Bendigo Animal Relief Centre, affectionately called ‘BARC’, provides feed, shelter and medical treatment to animals who have become lost, seized or surrendered.

BARC has a variety of cats, dogs, and occasionally other animals, available for adoption. All cats and dogs are temperament tested and BARC staff will work towards ensuring your new pet is a suitable match for you, your family, and your lifestyle. All cats and dogs available for adoption are microchipped, wormed, desexed and vaccinated.

Our mission

Here at the Bendigo Animal Relief Centre we are dedicated to providing a safe and caring temporary home for your lost or new best friend. We are constantly striving to create a community of responsible pet owners by providing support and information for all pets big and small.
