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.

BiG DoNaTioN!!!

Byram resident and BARKS adopter Aimee Conover organized a collection of pet items for BARKS at her workplace, Mendham Country Day School in Basking Ridge, where she is responsible for all community service projects. Aimee and her fiancé Keith brought a literal JEEPLOAD of goodies for the dogs and cats over to the Byram Animal Shelter this past weekend. What an assortment! Everything a pooch or kitty could want - dog food, kitten and cat food, lots of treats... and also paper towels, bleach and cleaning supplies for the shelter. Wowee! This is a huge help. Thank you Aimee and Mendham Country Day School for your amazing generosity - and thank you for thinking of the animals of BARKS!!

We need weekday morning help caring for the BARKS kitties at Newton PetSmart - please click here for more info.
