Member Of BARCS Volunteers, Fosters and Staff

As most of you know, I'm a huge animal lover but have always surrounded my home with kitty cats. My love for dogs is always there but I've either never lived in "dog friendly" apartments or had the time to really devote to a new member of my furry family. Until I can adopt a dog without my cats scratching me to death in my sleep, I spend every free opportunity I have volunteering at BARCS which is the largest shelter in Maryland - taking in over 11,000 homeless dogs and kitty cats and 1,000 exotic, farm and wildlife animals each year. 

Moving to Maryland was not the easiest for me but I am so grateful that I found BARCS. The dogs that I walk give their unconditional love, make me laugh the way they wiggle their butt, and look up at me with beautiful eyes in hopes I will give them a treat and some good belly rubs. Volunteering their has led me to new friendships and allowed me to volunteer at some of the coolest events ever all while getting in some serious snuggles with beautiful animals. Although my volunteer time is mostly with the pups, I do sneak in to the kitty room and see some of the fluffiest and cutest kitties around who are looking for their furever home.  

So please Sponsor ME :) and support my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal and allowing me to continue to volunteer and support this amazing animal shelter!

When you give to BARCS, you can count on your donation supporting animal care and positive programs. They pride themselves on responsible spending and low overhead, with $.96 from every $1 going directly to the animals they serve. I mean what other organization that you know of does that!!!!???? Oh and did I mention that the staff there is absolutely incredible - when you adopt an animal from BARCS, you get FREE training and behavior advice from private consultations to group training - ummm that's incredible and so needed for a new pet owner!!!
