About Barnsley Animal Rescue

We’re one of Yorkshire’s largest rescue charities.

BARC was formed in 1995, at a time when many rescue centres were still putting healthy animals to sleep. We were the first in our local area to stop this. Every year, since then we have changed the lives of thousands of abandoned animals.

We think it’s important to provide the best possible care for our animals. Our kennels, cattery and rabbit sanctuary are all run by animal welfare experts. We provide physical and mental rehabilitation until they are ready for their new home.

We take care to help new owners make the right decision when choosing a companion, one best suited to their lifestyle. Our team are always available to provide support and advice every step of the way. And will continue to do so throughout an animal’s life. This is our commitment to them and to you, we call it Infinity Care.
