BARC’s aim is to match you with the perfect pet, to do this, we need to spend time with you and that’s why all adoptions are strictly by appointment only. We also require some information from you to help match you to a suitable new pet, please Download our pre-adoption questionnaire and send it to [email protected] at the time of making your booking, or you can bring it with you to your appointment. Alternatively, you can arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment time and complete a copy of the paperwork at BARC.
