BARKLEYWORLD, a 501(c) (3) charity, was founded in 2013 by Dennis and Karen Lee and is named for our longtime companion - Barkley. He was rescued from the streets by Homeward Bound Animal Rescue of Bedford, TX, and we adopted him in 1996. He lived to be almost 19 years old and is a shining example of what animal rescue is all about.
BARKLEYWORLD provides support to municipal animal shelters, animal rescue groups, foster groups and individuals, in our quest to prevent the euthanasia of healthy animals.
We specialize in helping rescue groups and animal shelters market and promote animals for adoption, assist with finding fosters, promote rescue group fundraisers, and assist with spay-neuter campaigns and veterinarian expenses.
Our primary support to municipal animal shelters and organized rescue groups includes multi-faceted activities leading to the adoption of animals with the ultimate goal of zero euthanasia of healthy animals. In addition, by providing funding for families with pets in need of veterinarian services beyond their financial capabilities, BARKLEYWORLD seeks to keep families and pets together. It is a fact that many people surrender their pets to shelters if they are unable to afford veterinarian services. Barkleyworld is dedicated to keeping these pets from becoming shelter statistics.
Most municipal shelters generally have no provisions for animals with injuries or illnesses. Unless these animals are rescued or donations provided for veterinarian care, they are generally deemed unadoptable and euthanized. BARKLEYWORLD provides support to shelters for animals in need of veterinarian services.
