Adopting A Friend


This is Jack and Jill . They were both found on the highway with their sibling that had already been hit and killed . They were crouched down on the side of the road with their deceased sibling confused and scared , A nice lady risked her safety and stopped and retrieved both of them into her car . She brought these two sweet dogs to us and now we are desperately trying to find them a home together or apart . If you are interested in meeting Jack or Jill please call 598-0454 or 332-1093 Thank you !!!


Who We Are

BAARC - Birmingham's Animal Adoption and Rescue Center is a no-kill  , rescue and part of the no-kill movement . Our mission is to help any unwanted or abandoned animal that needs a chance at a loving forever home . We take in and adopt out nearly 500 animals a year and all through the generous contributions of various organizations and individuals they are all spayed and neutered . We also will assist in low cost spay and neuter programs through the help of other organizations such as Friends of Cats and Dogs Foundation (FCDF) and Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic (ASN) ,  to help other people with animals in need . BAARC offers low cost boarding for rescues that do not have a facility and families who are suffering financial problems . Due to the large number of families losing their homes and the economy in general we are seeing rising numbers of owner surrenders . Your help with donations always helps us to help more animals in need ! Please contact us if you would like to help in anyway with parties , fundraisers or any other way to help us raise funds and awareness of the crisis that is animal over population !! Thank you for your continued support .
