It takes $12,800 a day to keep the Baltimore Animal Care & Rescue Shelter running.

Much of that funding comes directly from donations.

Since 2015, I've been so honored to be a part of BARCS as a volunteer in the shelter and as a fundraiser, and so humbled by the support my friends, family, and even complete strangers have offered.

It's with you all in mind that I'm working with the BARCS Volunteer and Staff team to raise money again for BARCStoberfest.

BARCStoberfest is the largest single-day fundraising event for the organization. And an astounding $.96 from every $1 goes directly to 11,000 homeless dogs and cats, and 1,000 exotic, farm and wildlife animals each year.

From kennel care and behavioral training to veterinary services and community education, BARCS works miracles for an entire city - all with an operating budget of less than $5 million. And they could do so much more.

Click the "Sponsor Me" button below to donate and support my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal, or click Register to create your own site and join me in raising money for the homeless animals at BARCS! 

To say thanks, I'm offering a special gift.

For anyone who donates $50 or more, I'll create a custom, quirky vintage pet portrait just for you.

Ever wondered what Fifi would look like as a corseted Victorian aristocrat? How about Mr. Wigglebutt III as a 1920's gangster?
