BARC is a non-profit all volunteer group dedicated to animal welfare. We obtained our (501C3) status in 2002. Our mission is to eliminate the euthanasia of adoptable dogs and cats by promoting and providing spay/neuter surgeries for low-income family pets. BARC is the largest spay/neuter provider in the St. Louis area specifically targeting the low-income population. BARC has been able to provide over 57,000 spay/neuters for pets of low-income families since October 2003.
