Critical Wintertime Donation Match

BARCS never closes our doors to animals in need. This winter has been bitterly cold so far, and our caring team has been healing injuries and hearts for the homeless animals of Baltimore City. Critical medical care for our animals is the largest portion of the BARCS budget. It’s where funding for our shelter is always greatly needed.

Our friends at PCI Service Company, a division of Power and Combustion Incorporated, want to make sure that animals' needs are met during this very cold and challenging winter. To support our lifesaving mission, they have generously pledged an emergency match for all donations, dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 through February 28.

How we will use your donation to save lives:

  • $25 turns into $50 to provide vaccines, a flea treatment and a comprehensive medical exam for one abandoned or stray animal
  • $50 turns into $100 to feed five animals with special medical diets for one week
  • $100 turns into $200 to provide care and nutrition to a litter of motherless kittens or puppies
  • $500 turns into $1,000 to save the life of a pet who came in as a critical, overnight emergency

P.S. When you give, please consider making your gift a monthly donation. As an essential service and an open-admission shelter, BARCS continues to take in and care for hurting and helpless animals in our community. We are still welcoming new animals in our shelter each and every day. It is because of our dependable monthly donors, our Constant Companions, that we know each day what funding we will have to get us through.
