BarkinQ Rescue Across the Globe helps dogs regardless of which country they are located in – we believe in compassion without borders. It just so happens that dogs in extreme need often lie outside US borders. So, why do we believe in international adoption?
In some ways, our organization is not unlike a breed rescue. Folks who choose to promote pugs or fundraise for retired racing greyhounds don’t get asked: why purebreds only? BRAG is interested in helping a very specific type of dog, so we are more like a breed rescue than many people realize.
The dogs we work so hard to help aren’t exactly one breed, but they are certainly a type. They are born facing overwhelming odds, often in densely-populated urban hubs facing widespread disease and maltreatment.
Were the streets of our local cities overrun with hundreds of thousands of these poor souls, we would focus our efforts here at home. But the reality is that the United States is one of the few nations around the globe that is in good shape when it comes to street dog populations.
