BARk is a non-profit group from West York Boro located in York County, PA.   We were formed in 2008 by Shelley Metzler the Animal Control Officer for the Boro. Our team is made up of our volunteers who respond to any emergency involving an animal (lost, found, stolen, vehicle accident or fire) within our area.  

BARk provides pet supplies and food on a scheduled basis to those who are in need.  We rely on the support and donations from our community, pet companies and fundraisers.

If you have lost or found a pet or have an emergency situation or concern where an animal is involved, please contact us and our volunteers will assist you.


Our office is located at 1700 West Philadelphia Street in York.

Office Hours - Wed 6-8pm and Sat 1-3pm (call to confirm we are open)
