BARCS evacuates shelter animals, due to threat of flooding

October 29, 2012|By Jill Rosen | The Baltimore Sun

To keep its animals safe, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) moved all of its dogs and cats to a temporary home at 1st Mariner Arena on Monday morning.

Because the shelter lies in a flood-prone part of South Baltimore, BARCS convened a team of volunteers for the emergency evacuation.

In a matter of hours, they safely moved more than 100 cats and nearly that many dogs.

The animals will ride out the storm at the arena.
