Briggs Animal Adoption Center

Charles Town, WV

Our Mission

BAAC is the incarnation of Mr. and Mrs. Briggs’ guiding philosophy that “each and every animal has intrinsic value and deserves to be treated accordingly—with kindness, compassion and respect." Therefore, our stewardship includes sanctity for their individual lives, and we will not participate in the killing of one animal in order to ‘make room’ for another animal. But rather, we will remain committed to each animal that comes into our care until an appropriate home can be found, because this is part of the humane solution to ending animal suffering.”

BAAC is a program of The National Humane Education Society (NHES), a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization founded in 1948. To learn more about NHES, please visit

Adoption Policy

We require visits with potential adopters and animals, including extra visits with younger children and other dogs in the home.

An adoption application is required before showing animals to potential adopters.
