Babworth Animal Rescue KennelsElaine and Darren Shaw first began taking in rescues at their private kennels at Crossing Cottage Babworth in 2005. They were running a boarding kennels when a friend asked if they would board some pound dogs for her who would otherwise be put to sleep. The 'poundies' arrived and Elaine became more and more affected by the number of unwanted and abandoned animals in need of new homes. Her focus quickly shifted and within a year the boarding kennels became a rescue. Babworth Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK) was born. BARK takes in poundies, unwanted pets or those who need a new home due to their owners being unable to care for them any more and, more recently, dogs from other European countries where they suffer horrendous abuse and neglect such as Romania and Bulgaria.
