MEGA Adoption Event

July 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

For some 100+ homeless dogs and cats at Baltimore area shelters, a second chance at life is just a quick road trip away! On Saturday, July 21, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) is renting out the Timonium Fairgrounds—thanks to a generous grant from the Petco Foundation and funding from Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance (BAWA) —for a MEGA Adoption event.

BARCS will be joined by Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance (BAWA) partners the Maryland SPCA, the Baltimore Humane Society, Baltimore County Animal Services and the Humane Society of Harford County. This mega adoption event is the largest in the Baltimore area and surrounding counties and features:

  • 100+ adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies–all types, all sizes!
  • Adoption fees are waived for all pets! Out-of-state adopters welcome, too.
  • SAME-DAY ADOPTIONS! Owned pets are not permitted at this event.

The event will open to the public promptly at 12 p.m. and remain open until 4 p.m. or until all pets have been adopted. Families are able to bring home their new furry friends the day of the event. All adoptions are first come, first served and adoption fees have been waived for all pets at the event. Standard adoption procedures still apply. Adopters should bring a valid photo ID.
