b.a.r.s. FEATURED adoptables

Helping the Strays of today become the Pets of tomorrow

In 2010 our rescue organization was founded to provide a safe and nurturing environment for unwanted, abandoned, lost, and mistreated pets until they can be placed into loving homes. Our cats and dogs come to us from all kinds of environments and situations. This includes feral animals, pets surrendered by their owners and transfers from the ASPCA and RCMP.

We are a non-profit animal rescue based just outside of Edmonton that is supported entirely by volunteers and private contributions! Through proactive intervention, public education, fundraising events, and community outreach, the Barrhead Animal Rescue Society seeks to promote respect for all life by breaking the cycle of abuse, neglect, and pet overpopulation in our communities.

It is our greatest pleasure to see our fosters and adoptive families give new lives and affection to the animals from our rescue. Please be sure to check out our featured adoptable animals below, as well as our feline and canine adoptable pages on the site. We look forward to answering any of your questions!

Foster Homes Needed!

What is a foster home?

It is a home that provides an animal with temporary respite; a place to recover and adjust to living life in a stable and loving environment, making the transition easier for the animal to prepare for their forever home.

​All costs including food and veterinary care are covered by the Barrhead Animal Rescue Society. The need is great for more foster homes. If you think you could offer your home for fostering, please click the "Apply Now" button below to apply!

My family is a rescue family. To speak about compassion and love is one thing, but to show an animal a kinder way to live is another.

Harley has been with us for over 4 years! He is in LOVE with the laser pointer and is very playful. Harley prefers to choose when he interacts with his humans. With time, Harley gains confidence with his humans and slowly becomes more affectionate.

Wolf is very tolerant and he enjoys kids, exploring, and other animals. Wolf always seems to know when you’re ready for a snuggle, so when you sit down for the night, he’s ready to settle down and get some love.



Every little bit helps! Your donation can be used to help care for the animals in our rescue by enabling us to provide food, veterinary care and other associated costs.
