BARk News


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.  

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.

BARk's Community Aide Bins
BARK also has 2 community aides bins for donations. They are located in the back of the building.  These bins are also a way to help BARk, so when you need somewhere to get rid of old clothes or shoes think of us.


Pet Supply Donations

BARk accepts donations all year around for Dog/cat food, leashes, bowls, dog/cat beds, toys, snacks, collars, etc.

If you would like to donate, or if you know anyone who may need help this year please contact me with their name, address, and phone number. All donations may be dropped off at the BARk office there is a brown bin with a lid by the front door to leave donation if the office is closed.  BARk helps animals in need all year long, we DO NOT give to same individuals monthly.  For those individuals we will provide quarterly.

Thank you for ALL of your support
