The Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC!) is a no-kill adoption agency (rather than a shelter). We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit established in 1979, we were the first and remain the only county-wide animal welfare agency. Our goal is to eliminate the number of abused and abandoned pets through spay/neuter, education, rescue and adoption.
Who Do You Serve?
The citizens and animals of Baldwin County, Alabama.
The Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC!) was formed in 1979. Through the years, there may have been some changes but our ultimate goals have never changed. We want no animals euthanized at our local shelters, we want no homeless animals in our area, and we want all animals to have a great home to live in and be well taken care of.
In 2012, we rescued and were awarded legal custody of 120 dogs and cats in one night from fetid, horrific conditions after owners of a local “rescue group” were arrested on multiple felony animal abuse charges. All animals that survived that night, now have a wonderful life!
We are always in need of foster homes, volunteers, and money. We are also currently looking for a new facility to move into–one that is larger than the one we are currently in and better meets our needs.
We would like to see the end of euthanasia in our county. A tremendous amount of spaying/neutering will have to take place; along with a lot of time, education and effort.
