Baark! was formed in late October 2009 by small group of animal advocates after a letter written by 14 year old Kirsh Duncombe to the Bahamas Tribune Editor.
It was revealed that every Friday morning up to 50 animals are euthanized each week at the Canine Control Unit, known locally as The ‘Pound’. This number is made up of animals surrendered by their owners and strays trapped by Pound staff. They wanted to significantly reduce this number in addition to the amount of stray/roaming animals on the streets.See more
