Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services (FoBACS) raises much-needed funds to support Berkeley’s municipal animal shelter, Berkeley Animal Care Services.

Formed in 2012 by a dedicated team of volunteers, Friends of BACS secures financial support to help the shelter provide humane, ethical, and compassionate treatment of Berkeley’s homeless animals through educational and enrichment programs, adoptions, medical care, equipment, training and other necessities.

Completely volunteer-run, Friends of BACS has no paid officers or staff. All contributions directly support the animal welfare programs and services of the animal shelter.
