building for life

The New Bay Area Animal Resource Center (BAARC)

Please join Berkeley Humane in building a brighter future for shelter animals in our community.

Berkeley Humane has a long and distinguished history. We attribute our success to living in the present while looking toward the future.

Through our Building for Life – Every Dog, Every Cat Campaign – we plan to build more than a shelter. The new Bay Area Animal Resource Center (BAARC) will be a comprehensive pet resource center that features state-of-the-art veterinary, adoption, training, and education programs for the community.

With the opening of BAARC, we will continue our promise to find loving homes for 100% of the adoptable animals brought through our doors.

This campaign is in a quiet fundraising phase and we are currently securing leadership level gifts. For more information about donating and naming opportunities, please contact Jeffrey Zerwekh, Executive Director.

Community Resources

Berkeley Humane is committed to providing free and low-cost essential resources to our community’s dogs, cats, and their guardians, because we believe that doing so will help minimize reluctant surrenders of beloved pets.
