Welcome to the Family

Join us in saving lives! Adopt a homeless pet, sign up to volunteer, or make a donation—be a part of our BARCS family. View our adoptable pets below.




You could make a difference in the lives of our pets! BARCS is always interested in expanding our volunteer community. No matter what skill or expertise you have, all BARCS volunteers do share one thing – the desire to make a difference. We have many volunteer opportunities, making it easy for individuals and groups to become involved!

We run on donations

We have more than 250 pets in our shelter right this very minute—we are feeding, caring and showing love to each of them. Being an open-admission shelter means that no matter what, our doors (and hearts) are open to every single animal in need.

Lifesaving Programs

We offer a variety of programs and services here at our Baltimore facility.

Thank You

to our partners!
