A small group of people in Bisbee, Arizona saw the need to help unwanted and abandoned pets and that the shelters struggled to get the animals noticed and adopted. Those first fosters for Border Animal Rescue opened their homes, their hearts, and their wallets to take care of those animals and to help place those animals in their forever homes. Since incorporation in 1998, Border Animal Rescue has worked tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home animals and has developed a wonderful relationship with animal control and the shelters of Cochise County. The work is not always easy, but it is always worth it.

What we do:

The mission of Border Animal Rescue (BAR) is to reduce animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs; promote the adoption of unwanted, homeless pet in Cochise County by caring for them in foster homes and providing medical care, if needed, until they are placed in permanent homes; promote population control of free-roaming cats through a trap/neuter/return (TNR) program; and promote the health and humane treatment of all animals.


Trap/Neuter/Return Program (TNR):

BAR assists with population control of free-roaming neighborhood cats. Adult cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to the area they came from. Young kittens are placed in foster homes, socialized, and adopted into loving homes.



We do not have a physical facility. All our animals are fostered in the homes of volunteers until they are ready for adoption. Foster homes are located throughout Cochise County.

Border Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization.
