Give a Wag! Gives to Baltimore Shelters

Run on volunteer power and passion, Animal Allies Rescue Foundation is a no-kill gap service provider for Baltimore rescues in a tough spot. AARF is committed to the prevention of animal abuse and focuses particularly on animals victimized by violence and neglect.  AARF is very active in the community, building a partnership network to host a calendar full of happy hour events and subsidized adoption events.

One of Baltimore's only open-admission shelters, Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Center serves over 10,000 injured, abandoned, and homeless animals every single year.  The sheer volume of work is almost overwhelming, being the largest shelter in a city like Baltimore, and it certainly takes a village to run the organization. BARCS relies a lot on local fundraising and volunteer power.  They offer services like low-cost vaccinations, working cat programs, and pet licensing amongst several others to ensure that animals are given the best chance possible.  

The Maryland SPCA serves Baltimore and some bordering communities by providing no-kill rescue and adoption services for over 3,000 animals each year.  They have several programs providing free adoptions for special staff selected animals monthly in addition to their school education programs.  The Maryland SPCA has a wellness clinic to provide low-cost services and free services to homeless animals in need.  When they are not working to find dogs and cats their forever home, the Maryland SPCA is developing new programs to reach their community, like their project, Kibble Connection, which provides cat food delivery via Meals on Wheels.
