BARCS is grateful to the Petco Foundation who has generously provided funding for BARCS for spay and neuter surgeries, event sponsorships, puppy cages, replacement of an industrial washing machine and dryer motor, and general operating funds.

Most recently, they provided a grant to expand our offsite adoptions, enabling BARCS to hire two offsite adoption counselors to coordinate adoption events in the community and to provide oversight to local retail stores that house some of our adoptable cats so a broader audience can see them.
