Get Involved

BARCS is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization operating Maryland’s largest open-admission animal shelter and pet adoption center, nestled in downtown Baltimore’s Federal Hill neighborhood. Our shelter grants refuge to every abandoned, neglected, abused, lost or surrendered animal that comes through our door – a staggering 30-35 or more animals are surrendered to BARCS daily, every single day of the year. No matter what the circumstance, we do not turn away any animal in need of shelter, food and a loving touch.
