Member Of BARCS Volunteers, Fosters and Staff

Almost 2 years ago, I adopted a beautiful, sweet cat.  When Kingsley and I walked out the doors of BARCS that day, I knew I would be back.  I was so inspired by how much the Baltimore City shelter was able to do with so little.  The passionate staff members and volunteers went above and beyond in helping me find the perfect cat.  I had to find a way to give back.

I started off coming in to socialize the cats- helping the more shy ones become more adoptable, and giving the rest of the cats some love while they waited for their homes.  I decided I also wanted to walk the dogs in the shelter- getting the pups out of their kennels and letting them stretch their legs and get some 1 on 1 time with a human.  
Shortly after beginning to volunteer, I found out about the foster program, and how it saves the lives of so many additional animals outside of the shelter.  I decided to begin fostering kittens in my little one bedroom apartment- they don't take up much space!  I've fostered around 45 kittens now, and it's been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  I've been able to help tiny, sick kittens who were close to death grow into strong and thriving kittens who found their forever homes.  Every kitten who comes through my front door is special to me, and I feel so privileged to be able to be a part of that kitten's life.  
I am thankful everyday that BARCS saved Kingsley's life and that they brought us together.  However, BARCS takes in over 12,000 animals a year, and they operate on an extremely tight budget.  They rely heavily on their big fundraisers like Barcstoberfest to continue to save the animals of Baltimore City.  
Please consider making a donation to Barcstoberfest so that BARCS can continue to help animals just like Kingsley find loving homes.
