Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) is running a “Love is in Bloom” adoption special through May. Every Sunday this month, adoption fees will be reduced from $65 to just $5 for any animal.
BARCS is also looking for some foster homes for kittens and cats, which, this being spring, are showing up at the shelter in extreme numbers.
BARCS says it is particularly desperate for foster homes for motherless kittens who need to be bottle fed. No experience is necessary, and training will be provided.
There are plenty of other ways to help out BARCS, short of taking home an animal. Among the items BARCS gladly accepts donations of are: Leashes, (6 feet long, 1″ thick, nylon), collars, cat litter (no-clumping), toys (without catnip), cardboard box lids (like those from cases of food/paper for use as disposable litter pans), paper towels, dish detergent, bleach, 32-gallon heavy-duty trash bags, hoses, gauze, alcohol, distilled water, latex gloves, peroxide, hand sanitizer, copy paper, laminating sheets and index cards (3 x 5).
