BARCS Madness: Some fees waived in March

basketballBaltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS) is waiving the $65 adoption fee for selected dogs and cats for the entire month of March.

Dogs and cats that can be adopted for free will be identified at the shelter with a basketball sticker on their cages.

Included in the adoption fee are spay/neuter surgery; vaccinations for rabies, DHLPP and bordatella for dogs or FVRCP for cats; de-worming, a flea preventative, a general examination, a food sample, and a month of free health insurance. Baltimore City residents will have to pay a $10 license fee.

In addition to waiving some fees, BARCS will be offering microchipping for $20 per pet – only $5 for those who were adopted at BARCS.

One week remains in “Baltimore 500″

Baltimore area animal shelters have one week to go in their race to place 500 cats in adoptive homes by the end of the month — and so far they are on target to make the goal.

“It is so wonderful to see the people of the Baltimore area opening their hearts and homes to cats and kittens during this campaign,” said Jennifer Mead-Brause, executive director of Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS). “We still have plenty of wonderful cats and kittens who need new homes. This is the best time to consider adoption. And if you already have a cat and kitten, this is the very best time to adopt a playmate for him or her.”

During the month of June, cat and kitten adoption fees are being waived at BARCS, the Maryland SPCA, and the Baltimore Humane Society.

From June 1 through 21 Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) and the Maryland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MD SPCA) adopted out 344 cats. Information about the campaign is available at Baltimore500.org.

Adoption fees for cats and kittens are being waived for the entire month, and six local veterinary clinics are offering free exams for cats and kittens adopted at participating shelters in June.

The Baltimore 500 roars on

Baltimore area animals shelters are zooming right along in their quest to find homes for 500 cats in the month of June.

Adoption fees for cats and kittens are being waived for the entire month.

In the first ten days, 178 cats were adopted, according to the member shelters of the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance – Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), the Maryland SPCA and the Humane Society of Baltimore County.

The alliance has created a special website, Baltimore500.org, with information about the campaign.

In addition to the waived adoption fee, six local veterinary clinics are offering free exams for cats and kittens adopted at participating shelters in June.

“This is a life saving campaign and we are heartened by the display of caring by the residents of the Baltimore area. Our shelter has been crowded with people interested in adopting cats and kittens,” said Frank Branchini, Volunteer and Events Coordinator for BARCS. “BARCS is encouraging people who already have cats to consider adopting a second cat or kitten as a playmate.”

Cats and kittens adopted from BARCS are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and bordatella, de-wormed, Felv tested, and provided with a flea preventative, a general examination, a food sample, and a month of free health insurance.

The participating shelters are:

Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), 301 Stockholm Street, Baltimore, 410 396-4695

The Maryland SPCA, 3300 Falls Road, Baltimore, 410 235-8826

Baltimore Humane Society, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown, 410 833-8848

Cats are free in Baltimore in June

Baltimore area animal shelters have come together to make a life-saving offer.

Throughout the month of March, adoption fees on cats and kittens are being waived — at the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter, the Maryland SPCA and the Baltimore Humane Society.

Like shelters across the country that are feeling the effects of a choppy economy, Baltimore’s are inundated, especially at this time of year with cats.

Every day, they’re dropped off by the boxload. At BARCS alone, 696 cats arrived at the shelter in May.

The Maryland SPCA, which put together this video, is swamped with cats as well.

The joint effort by the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance is being called “Baltimore 500: A Race to Save Lives” — an attempt to find families for 500 cats.  And if free isn’t cheap enough, consider this: Each cat comes with a free medical exam. Six local veterinary clinics are offering free exams to cats adopted from the shelters in June.

“We need everyone’s help in the community in order to save lives. This is the best time to adopt,” Jennifer Mead-Brause, Executive Director at BARCS said.  “You will get a loving companion who has been spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and bordatella, de-wormed, Felv tested, and provided with a flea preventative, a general examination, a food sample, and even a month of free health insurance.”
