B.A.R.K. - Kennel Help

We will be working with other volunteers at the site. The work is generally completed by 2:00 PM.

If you love dogs, then BARK needs you! BARK is a volunteer run organization that was formed for the express purpose of finding homes for unwanted, abandoned and mistreated animals.

Our tasks will mainly revolve around BARK's Quality of Life program. We'll help clean out the kennels, walk the dogs and take care of anything else that's needed at the Ashland farm. Wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves and some water.

If you have not volunteered with BARK before, please complete download the volunteer application/waiver online at or fill out the form when you arrive. We'll be working indoors and outdoors, so please wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather that you don't mind getting dirty.

14130 Greenwood Church Road
Ashland, VA 23005


Do not Mapquest this location - use Google maps or the directions below. The map on this Meetup page is correct. It is about 35 minutes from downtown Richmond.

From 295 take Route 33 West (Staples Mill Rd.) toward Montpelier exit. You’ll pass the Tyson Chicken plant and eventually come to a light at the intersection of 623. You’ll pass an Exxon station, Stanley’s store and JoPa pools. Continue for .8 mile and turn right on Farrington Road. Go to the end (stop sign at Greenwood Church Road) and turn right. Just around the curve the driveway will be on the left - it is a bridge over a creek. Drive up past the house and park where other cars will be. Walk up the gravel drive away from the house to the barns. PLEASE DO NOT HAVE CONTACT THE DOGS AT THE HOUSE WITHIN THE FENCED AREA. They are Bob’s (the owner's) dogs - some are in training and others will not be adopted out.

Questions? If you have questions about this project please contact Claire Tetrick:
email: [masked] phone:[masked] (Please note that cell phone service is very spotty at the farm, so please call before 10:00 am on Saturday if you need to reach Claire!)

      Hi. I won't make it out this coming week , I still have the same time constraints, and then plans just after 3. We have about 2 more weeks left on the trail build, then I'll have more flexibility.

      Jeff, I will have to run over to the adoption stand to take one of my foster dogs to meet a potential adopter, and then I'll be back. When you get there, just ask for Richard (the crew lead) or Bob Adams. They can give you a quick orientation and get you started!

    I am interested in volunteering and working with dogs. I am not sure I can make this event though. Are there other opportunities coming up? Also will they all be at the Ashland Location? I live in Chesterfield so it's kind of a far drive.

      There are opportunities every Saturday, but the events are all at the Ashland location as that's where the dogs are housed!

    I'm committed to a project until 12 that morning, is it ok to come around 1230?

    February 11, 2013

    • Claire T.

      Hi Jeff! We are usually there until at least 2:00 or 2:30 so you would be fine to come out around 12:30 if you're interested!
