Volunteer Open House

Volunteer Open House

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with BARCS and joining our family of animal lovers, advocates and amazing individuals who care about our community. We can't wait to meet you!

To get started, simply attend one of our volunteer open house dates on Saturday mornings or Thursday evenings at our shelter (301 Stockholm Street, Baltimore, MD 21230). The open house starts at 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays and 6 p.m. on Thursdays and begins with a presentation all about our organization. Prospective volunteers are then given a tour of our facility, where you will meet our staff and fellow volunteers, see the animals we serve and have the opportunity to ask lots of questions! After the tour, we provide takeaway documents about all the areas and ways you can help as well as next steps.
