Animal lovers-PLEASE HELP!

A Place to Bark is a dog rescue located in Portland, Tennessee that saved 705 dogs last year from being euthanized in a shelter! Owner Bernie Berlin works tirelessly answering calls for dogs in need of placement every day. She takes dogs from high kill shelters, from the side of the road, from the sheriff, the list goes on and on. She rehabilitates the dogs (when needed) and places them with other rescue groups in and around Tennessee and Chicago.

Check out this video about A Place to Bark:

A Place to Bark runs on a shoestring budget, but they are facing the decision of closing their doors on August 1 if they do not receive more funding. They have received a $20,000 matching grant so for every dollar you can donate, it will be matched 100%. Even the smallest donations will help, so if you feel moved, please please donate. Please go to their website and donate through Paypal by clicking here. A Place to Bark is a 501 (c)(3) registered non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization and so all donations are tax deductible.

You can also help by donating old towels, blankets, baby receiving blankets, toys, collars, leashes, cages, food, bleach, treats, milk replacement, microscopes, slides, scales, stethoscopes, muzzles, pet beds and cat litter. If you choose to donate any of these items please send them to:
