BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Foster Program at BARCS’ is accepting applications to help rescued pets to find temporary new homes.

The foster program was designed to give homeless pets a warm and loving environment to heal and grow. Foster pet parents will be required to care for the pet as their own until they are strong enough to be adopted.
