Hi, I’m 6 year old Coco McElveen! I’m a petite little lady that’s just as sweet as can be. I love pets and attention, and I’m very loving in return. I enjoy being outside and I walk gently on the leash. I know “sit”, especially if there’s a treat involved! I have a medium energy level – I’m past all that puppy silliness! Please come to BARCS to meet me today.


Hi, I’m Xavier! Other than the little gray around my muzzle, you’d never know I’m 9 years old….there’s nothing frail about me at all! I’m calm, cool, and collected. I come out of my kennel politely, and I don’t try to push past you. I’m very interactive and responsive with my handler, and I take direction well. I’m an even tempered guy, and I don’t react to the other dogs even when they’re being silly. Please stop by BARCS to meet me today!


Hi, I’m Lorraine! I may be 10, but I’m still very active and spry. I get so happy and excited to have a visit or to go out for a walk that I do a little tap dance when you approach my kennel. I still have a silly side, and I don’t mind playing dress up as you can see! 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 [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.
