End of Life Services

Your pet is an important member of your family. Being a pet owner is a wonderful gift that brings great joy to millions of people every day. Unfortunately, at some point, you must make difficult and emotional decisions regarding the health of your companion, including end of life decisions.

BARCS offers end of life services for sick, elderly or otherwise suffering animals. Pet owners who cannot afford the cost of euthanasia at a full service veterinarian can contact us at 410-396-4695 (option 1) or email resource@barcs.org to speak with a Resource Coordinator and to schedule an appointment. There is no fee for Baltimore City residents; non-city residents are required to pay a $50 fee. Unfortunately, due to restrictions within our facility and for your safety, you are not permitted to be with your pet during the procedure.

**We do not euthanize healthy pets. Our medical staff will evaluate your pet and may or may not honor your request.**
