Fairhope, AL - The Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC!) incorporated in 1979as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit county-wide animal welfareorganization.
The corporation was formed to provide a means for the preventionof cruelty to animals within Baldwin County; to assist with theenforcement of lawful means with the arrest, conviction andpunishment of all persons violating such laws, and alleviate theover-population of dogs and cats within Baldwin County; to promotethe adoption of homeless cats and dogs to good homes; and to helpalleviate cruelty to and suffering of animals wherever such mayoccur.
We rescue, rehabiliate, and re-home hundreds of abused,abandoned and neglected pets.
We do not have a shelter of our own.
Alabama State law mandates that counties and municipalitieswith populations of over 5000 provide animal shelters and animalcontrol services, paid by our tax dollars. The Baldwin CountyHumane Society works cooperatively with them to place the shelteranimals in loving new homes, thus minimizing the tragic necessityof euthanasia due to overcrowded conditions. As a matter of fact,most of the pet photos in our Photo Galleries are pets availablefor adoption through a local shelter! We encourage you to visit ourshelters often, not only to adopt a new pet, but just to visit theanimals and show them you care. You may be surprised, and find theperfect feline or canine companion just waiting to become a part ofyour family!
BARC! doesn't get any government funding and relies soley on thegenerosity of donors to help the homeless, abused and inuredanimals.
