There are many opportunities to give.
Every month, BARCS takes in nearly 1,000 homeless, neglected and abused animals. Each and every one needs a special guardian who has pledged to donate for their care. When you sign up as a Constant Companion and make a recurring monthly gift throughout the year, you truly are a lifesaver. You’ll ensure we have the resources to give every animal food, shelter, medical care and the loving home they deserve.
Our Constant Companions give that promise. This year, more than 10,000 animals will get a second chance thanks to friends like you.
