Central Bark Cares

At Central Bark®, it’s our mission to nurture, enrich, and inspire lives. Bringing whole health, happiness, and unconditional love to each dog, family, and community, we serve to create a happier, healthier, more loving, and peaceful world.

That’s why we’re dedicated to supporting our local Charlotte-Matthews community. For over 20 years, the Central Bark franchise system has supported local dog rescue, fostering, and adoption organizations and charities in cities throughout the country. We also provide community education through our Central Bark Bite Prevention School Program and responsible pet care and positive canine development. Central Bark Charlotte-Matthews is independently owned and operated. As small business owners ourselves, we’re committed to supporting independently owned small local businesses that bring us together and help our community thrive.

“It is in our DNA to give back to the community. Passion, compassion, respect, and integrity are our core values and guiding principles. Being active in our community is part of that.”

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Central Bark! Our Scottish Terrier has been there weekly since they opened. She literally runs toward the door and inside when we arrive there for "Fun Friday." Jennifer and staff operate a spotless, energetic environment where you can be assured your pup will be safe and have a blast with others. They take great care to group compatible breeds and personalities. They get a HIGH FIVE from our Paisley!
