BARK (Bandit's Adoption and Rescue of K-9's) was founded in 2001 by Bob and Denise Tillack who continue the legacy of a rescue effort they started when they saved Bandit in 1987. Bandit was a dog neglected by his owners. After watching Bandit deteriorate for several weeks, the founders approached Bandit's owners to purchase him. After several attempts, the owner released ownership of Bandit to BARK and they took him to his new home. The founders and Bandit were together for 14 years before his death in 2001. Bandit will always be remembered, serving as a constant reminder of all the other neglected, homeless and abused animals in the world. The Tillack's have created a safe-haven at their farm in Ashland for most of the rescued dogs. BARK also has a Foster Parent Program where lucky dogs and puppies can be placed in a foster home while waiting to be adopted. There are over 90 BARK volunteers (and counting) who perform the essential weekly tasks of kennel care, canine intake, medical review, application review & research, record management, adoption tracking, newsletter publication, special event planning, foster care, and response to training and/or behavioral inquiries. Each year BARK grows stronger in number of volunteers and number of rescued, orphaned animals saved. With your continued support the valuable work at BARK will save thousands of K-9 lives in the years to come.
