Bark Avenue was founded by Mike Calinoff, who served on the Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Iredell County for six years. The company was created to fill a void that Mike discovered while traveling with the NASCAR circuit for 14 years.

"I struggled to find someone who would care for my pets in the manner which I did," said Calinoff. "Sometimes just getting someone to show up was a chore." 

So, when his tenure with NASCAR ended, he decided to bring pet care to a level that he always expected.

amassed 57 wins in the three top National Touring Series -- including two Daytona 500's.
