Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad
BARKS works in association with the Byram Pound located on Mansfield Drive in Byram Township, N.J. In addition to the pets that can be seen at the Byram Pound, we also have many cats in foster homes and several dogs in local kennels. All pets can be seen by appointment by contacting (973) 300-3185 or In addition, many adoptable pets can be seen at our regularly scheduled adoption days which are listed in the event calendar.

December 2015 - We still REALLY need your Help!!
We need more volunteers to help care for the cats at the Byram Shelter - nightly and weekend feeding/scooping. We also need 'cat socializers' - i.e. you pet the kitties to reduce their stress and increase their acceptance of humans. It's a fun job!

At the Newton Petsmart - we have morning and evening shifts open for cleaning the Adoptable Cat Showcase. Only 8-10 cats, it goes quick! Must be 18 or over for either location. Please fill out the volunteer application and join us today!
