  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 36 people are interested

We need animal lovers like you to help us in our mission to safeguard, rescue, heal, adopt and advocate for animals while inspiring community action and compassion. At BARCS, volunteers are more than just a tremendous help to our mission--they are our lifeline and our family.

BARCS is always holding fun events to help raise funds for our animal residents and help get animals adopted! A few of our fun events as examples:

  • Pours for Paws
  • Poorly Drawn Pet Portraits
  • BARCS Crawl
  • BARCS Crab Feast
  • BARCS Bingo
  • Paws at the Pointe Golf Tournament
  • BARCStoberfest
  • Dog Wedding
  • Petco Pop-Ups
  • Kitten Shower
  • and so many more!

We need volunteers who can help with nearly everything at our events (depending on the individual event): setup and teardown, registration/sign in, event prep, t-shirt/merch sales, and more! We're also looking at potentially adding an occasional Saturday booth at a Farmer's Market but would need volunteers to assist in set-up, running the booth, selling merch, and talking about our programs.

About Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)


2490 Giles Road, Baltimore, MD 21225, US

Mission Statement

The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc. (BARCS) is a nonprofit shelter that accepts and cares for all animals in need and promotes responsible pet ownership for a more humane community in Baltimore City. We are an open admission shelter that grants refuge to more than 10,000 animals a year regardless of age, health or history of abuse and neglect.


BARCS is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization operating Maryland’s largest animal shelter and pet adoption center. We are an open admission shelter, granting refuge to every abandoned, neglected, abused, lost or surrendered animal that comes through our door. A staggering 30 or more animals are surrendered to BARCS every day. No matter what the circumstance, we do not turn away any animal in need of shelter, food, medical care and a loving touch. Yearly, this equates to more than 10,000 dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, and even wildlife and exotic animals that need care and placement.

Each year, BARCS is growing, evolving and working to implement new innovative programs that benefit animals in need and the neighborhoods that support them.
