On the afternoon of Saturday, September 29 the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) will rent out Shipley Arena at the Carroll County Agricultural Center —thanks to a generous grant from the Petco Foundation—for the Fall In Love Adopt-a-Thon, a multi-shelter, mega adoption event. All adoption
fees are waived! BARCS will be joined by Humane Society of Carroll County (HSCC).
***ADOPTION FEES ARE WAIVED***
The event will open to the public promptly at 12 p.m. on the morning of September 29 and remain open until 4 p.m. or until all pets have been adopted. Families are able to bring home their new furry friends the day of the event. All adoptions are first come, first served and adoption fees have been waived for all pets at the event. All standard adoption procedures still apply. Adopters should bring a valid photo ID.
Adopters need to bring a valid photo ID with their current address. If current address does not match valid ID, additional proof of address must be provided (official mail, utility bill).
Adopters may NOT bring their current pets to the event. Adoption counselors from each shelter will be giving all adopters very thorough instructions about acclimate new pets to homes with existing pets.
All pets are same-day adoptions. Adopters must bring a vehicle that is the appropriate size to transport the pet they adopt.
Cat carriers, leashes and collars will be available for additional purchase at the event
