Baltimore’s animals are in crisis; city officials, business leaders and individuals can help

August 4, 2023

The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) recently sent a dire plea to the community that it was in a state of emergency, following a deluge of animals that came into its care. The numbers have been staggering, even for Maryland’s largest shelter, as BARCS had taken in 3,737 animals in the preceding 90 days, an average of 40 animals per day. To put this in perspective, that’s 700 more animals than the Maryland SPCA accepted in 2022.
