Citing a lack of space, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter is waiving adoption fees over the next two days to help pets find new homes, the shelter announced on Facebook.
As an open-admission facility, BARCS does not turn animals away, and the shelter now says it is at capacity.
“Animals wind up in shelters by no fault of their own,” the post says. “They depend on us to get them the care they need, and we depend on our community (and beyond) to save their lives through adoption.
“Please help us save the lives of the beautiful dogs and cats here right now by helping us get them out to good homes.”
There’s a link to the animals up for adoption here, but as the shelter notes on social media, there are more animals available than the ones shown on the site.
BARCS is slated to move to a new, larger facility in Cherry Hill as part of a government-orchestrated deal to bring Topgolf to a lot near the Horseshoe Casino.
