BARL has temporarily adjusted the hours we are open to the public.  The Adoption Center is open Tuesday-Sunday, 12:00 pm-3:00 pm, or by appointment (closed Monday).  We do favor appointments being made for your intake or adoption visits.  This helps us stay focused on your needs. There are protocols in place limiting the number of visitors in any one area. Masks are highly encouraged. We do need volunteers. Contact us at 601-757-4367 or to set up appointments for intake, volunteer work or adoptions. The animals look forward to seeing you.


Who we are...

The Brookhaven Animal Rescue League was established in 1981 and opened an Adoption Center in 2006.  BARL does not receive any government funding, therefore, is dependent on donations from individuals and businesses, and many fund-raising efforts.

In 2019, we took in over 1,300 dogs and cats that were rehomed or sent on transport to shelters in the Northern U.S. where they were quickly adopted.

In addition, we financially assisted in the spay/neuter of over 250 owned and community animals in the tri-county area.

We are small, but mighty!  We do all we can to help the animals in our area, which helps the people, and ultimately helps our communities.
