BARC stands for Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity and as you can imagine is an animal rescue charity based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

BARC’s Story

BARC was formed in 1995. Each year they rescue 100’s of abandoned animals, often they are sick, injured or having experienced abuse.
BARC care for these animals in their centre until they are ready for adoption.

This rehabilitation process can be lengthy due to both the physical and mental trauma these animals may have endured.


BARC rely on donations given to the charity and every penny of your donation goes in to helping the lives of 100’s of animals.

If you wish to donate directly to the charity, then please follow the link at the bottom of this post.
