We at BARKS mourn the passing of Sheryl Thole, our President for over 15 years. She was a pillar of our organization and an absolute champion of animals. Sheryl was especially a hero for sick and abused cats. We will all miss her terribly. If you would like to make a donation in her memory, one that will further support homeless animals, please click here for her memorial page. Thank you.

BARKS was featured in the NJ Herald, March 3, 2016, "FIV-positive cats living long, happy lives" -- featuring BARKS adoptable cats and based on our New FIV Resource Page.
