The New Barker Advertising Partner Resource Guide and Business Updates

We’ve compiled a resource guide of The New Barker advertising partners and will continue to update it as necessary. Please copy and paste the link in your Notes app so that you may refer back for news and updates. Please also consider supporting these businesses, now, by purchasing gift certificates. Another way to offer support is to follow them on their Facebook pages (links included below) and maybe send them a positive note. Each one of our advertising partners has been there for us, over the years, whenever we’ve asked for their help with fundraising efforts and donations in support of animal advocacy, animal shelter and animal rescue. They need us now, more than ever.
