BARCS Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

BARCS’ mission is not limited to compassion for animals—we firmly believe that no one should be judged or discriminated against on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability or level of income, or other non-merit factors.

BARCS is proud to collaborate with organizations and institutions within our community to help achieve the equity to which all humans are entitled to for pet ownership and access to resources. A broad lens of equity and diversity has a positive impact on the animals in our care and helps us better serve clients, employees, volunteers and our community at large.
