Darbster Bistro is a one-of-a-kind dining experience not only because of its creative plant-based cuisine but also because of its profound commitment to animal welfare through the Darbster Foundation, also known as Darbster Rescue.

Since its inception alongside Darbster Bistro in 2009, the Darbster Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has sought innovative ways to carry out its mission to reduce the euthanasia rates of animals in the Southern United States. With every delicious animal-saving meal enjoyed at Darbster Bistro, a portion of profits are directed towards critical animal welfare efforts.  From 2009 to 2015 these efforts included the sponsorship of over 3,000 spay/neuter surgeries and the provision of medical care for community animals.

In 2015, we began expanding our impact on the oversupply of homeless animals by transporting cats and dogs from South Florida to our own adoption centers in New Hampshire, Darbster Kitty and Darbster Doggy, as well as to our no-kill partner shelters in New England.

From 2015 to the end of 2023, utilizing both commercial airlines and our own ground transport vehicles, we transported, rehomed and helped save the lives of over 15,600 cats and 2,800 dogs!

At the end of 2023, with over 3,500 transports each year and our two shelters operating at full capacity, we opened our third Adoption Campus iside the Mall of New Hampshire.  Situated in a bustling shopping hub, the new facility provides exceptional visibility for our rescues, offering them the chance to find loving homes year-round. We anticipate a potential 30% increase in transports and adoptions in 2024 as a result of this innovative step to transform a shopping center into a adoption center.

In 2022, a generous supporter donated a fully equipped Spay Neuter Mobile Unit to further our efforts to reduce local feline overpopulation and homelessness.  Operations in both West Palm and Miami began in March 2023, exceeding 2,500 operations by year end.
