BARC’s mission is to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals and to find permanent loving homes for them. While in our care, we provide them with quality food, shelter, medical attention, and the love they deserve.
We are a 501c3 not-for-profit, no-kill, privately run animal shelter located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Since we opened our doors in 1987, we have been able to provide care to animals through dedicated volunteers, our pet supply business, and private donations.
Just wanted to give an update on the love of our lives: Candy. My best friend and I adopted Candy from BARC in September of 2007. Since then, Candy has charmed the pants off our entire neighborhood, all of our friends, family members, strangers, construction workers – basically anyone who has a heart has fallen in love with this dog.
