BARKS (Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad) is a non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue organization. We were founded in 1973 to provide veterinary care, housing and permanent placement of stray and abandoned cats and dogs.

Each year, BARKS places ~200 cats and kittens in homes, as well as providing another ~150 with low cost spay/neuter or TNR. We find homes for approximately 50 dogs and puppies each year, and assist with spay/neuter services for several others. In order to continue our rescue efforts we need the support of people like you.

Join BARKS for as little as $10 for the year. Call (973) 300-3185 to ask about fostering a cat or dog in your home on a temporary basis, volunteering at adoption days and at the garage sales, or other volunteer activities.

Make a generous donation to BARKS and help save an animal from a life of loneliness and neglect. Or sponsor an animal via our BARKS Buddy program. Support BARKS by making your donation today!
