Once nicknamed the “underdog,” the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) has been working tirelessly to make big strides for Baltimore’s homeless animals. Guided by compassion and dedication to our community, we have cared for more than 170,000 animals since our inception in 2005 along with thousands more that we have prevented from becoming homeless and having to enter our doors.

The Buddy Foundation of Maryland (TBFMD) provides emotional and monetary support for those struggling to save a canine companion in need of urgent care. The stories are many and varied, but each one carries a common denominator: a dog that is suffering and an owner who is exhausting all available means to save them. Our “Buddy System” moves applicants through a process that starts their pups off as “Buddies-in-Need” and completes once they become “Buddies-for-Life” and a treatment/cure has been achieved, giving dogs and their owners many more years of life and love together.
