Donors are encouraged to check out the complete wish list and drop items by BARCS, 301 Stockholm St., where there are stockings waiting to be filled. BARCS also invites you to check out the adoptable dogs while you are there.

Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), located across form Ravens Stadium, cares for more than 11,000 homeless animals annually. The shelter is open Mondays through Fridays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on December 24 and closed on December 25.

You can also help out BARCS by getting your pet’s picture taken with Santa today at Riverside Park in South Baltimore. All proceeds from the event, which runs from 10 to noon, go to BARCS Franky Fund for sick and injured animals.
