Bark Nation

Posted By: Jenna Hudy (June 1, 2018)
Bark Nation is on a mission to ollaborate with law enforcement, municipal animal control agencies and the not-for-profit sector to provide life after dogfighting and to end contract level dogfighting.

We need life-saving supplies and funds to conduct temporary sheltering operations, so that more enforcement agencies can raid properties and prosecute offenders without taking on the immense amount of work of finding kennel space for large numbers of dogs needing to be held as live evidence. Further, in the state of Michigan, there are no Bond and Forfeiture laws, meaning survivors can end up in the 'system' for extended periods of time during court proceedings, months if not years in some cases. Our facility will house up to 50 dogs at a time, and throughout the course of a year, we could rotate 250+ though our facility and into organizations where they can find their forever homes.
