Are you looking to do something special for your fur-babies birthday?  How about a special birthday card?  A gift basket filled with your pet's favorite things? How about treating your pet to a special homemade treat (dog treats, pupcakes, or a birthday cake).  If you answered yes to any of those questions, then we can help  make your fur-babies birthday a special day.  Please contact Shonda at [email protected] for more information. 

Dog License!!

BARk is now an agent of the York County Treasurer's office for Dog License. If you are in need of Dog License please call us at (717)880-2957, to see if anyone will be at the office.  

Or you may stop in at BARk Headquarters Weds 6-8 pm & Sat 1-3 pm. Applications maybe picked up at the office.    If you are interested in Life Time License you may pick up the applications at our office.  Life Time Applications may only be done at the York County Treasurer's Office.
