Hi, I’m Ginger Ale!  You can probably tell from my photos that I’m a smiling, fun-loving guy!  I’m an affectionate, 1 year old boy with lots of playtime energy.  I love my human friends, I love my doggy friends – I just love everyone!  The volunteers say that it’s very delightful to hang out with me, and that I’m learning my leash manners like a champ.  I don’t mean to brag, but I’m pretty smart so I’ve learned a lot while I’ve been here.  As much as I love my human and doggy shelter friends, I really want a family of my own – I’ve been waiting for you so please come to BARCS to meet me today!



Hi, my name’s Cletus!  I’m a handsome, silly, 1 year old boy that loves life.  I enjoy my time running around in the play yard and then coming back to my human friends for snuggles and kisses.  If you let me, I’ll crawl right into your lap for even better kisses.  And I really love playing with my doggy friends in the play yard, that’s the best!  The volunteers say I’m such a gentleman and will sit for treats and wait patiently. One volunteer recently took me to the State Fair and I was wonderful in the crowds.  I loved everybody I met, and especially loved all the kids – I gave everyone puppy kisses!  I will make a wonderful addition to your family!  Please come down to BARCS and meet me today….I will love you forever!



Hi everyone, I’m Doyle!  I’m a charming, affectionate, happy boy that’s just over a year old.  I really love to go for walks and play in the play yard.  I get so excited when someone comes to my kennel and I know that it’s my turn to go outside!   Once I get outside, I calm down and bask in my human’s companionship and the sunshine.  I love to snuggle and give kisses, but I’m not overbearing….I let you invite me to get close.  I really love a good belly rub!  I’ve been told I’m very smart – I know site, and I listen closely because I’m very eager to please.  I can’t wait to find my forever home, so please come to BARCS to meet me today!


Adopting a shelter dog is truly saving a life. The shelters cannot save animals without support from the community in the form of adoptions, fostering, volunteering and donations.  If you would like to meet these pups, please visit the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), located at 301 Stockholm St., Baltimore, MD. 21230.  For directions:  BARCS is open to the public Monday through Friday 2pm-6pm and Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm.  Please visit their website at to see these and other wonderful animals waiting hopefully for their forever homes.

For information about volunteering for BARCS, please contact Joe at [email protected] or visit the website.  If you are interested in fostering, please contact [email protected].  If you cannot adopt or foster the dogs but would like to help them on their quest to find a forever family, please share their story via social media or donate through the  BARCS website.
