The BARCS: Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter cares for kittens, puppies, even wildlife and exotic animals. BARCS accepts all animals in need.

Many of the animals BARCS cares for were abandoned or given up by owners who can no longer care for them. Too many animals come to the shelter as victims of abuse or hit and run accidents and BARCS ensures that their furry friends are safe from harm.



Formerly the Baltimore City Municipal Animal Shelter, BARCS was recognized as a non-profit in July 2005.

Since then BARCS has hired new staff, created new programs and changed the shelter’s standard operations.

These changes have helped BARCS: Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter dramatically increase adoptions and rescues, and significantly decrease euthanasia.

They do all this on a small budget and depend on generous donations to help animals in need in Baltimore.
