The Barx Parx Foundation’s mission is to promote animal adoption, help dogs find their forever homes and encourage responsible pet ownership and care by educating pet parents, supporting rescue organizations, animal shelters and other non-profit entities in the Southern Nevada area.


One of the best ways to help is by offering your time. We can help place you with numerous non-profit organizations that need you most.

Your one-time or recurring donation will go to program expenses including veterinary care, transport, training, food and supplies.


Fostering dogs in your home is easier than you might think! We can help connect you with local rescue organizations in need of loving homes to help foster.
