In line with the Governor's recommendations, BARL will continue to do roadside/curbside adoptions by appointments.  Our Adoption Center will continue to be closed to the public; however, we are excited to meet adopters by appointment.  Contact us at 601-757-4367 or to set up an adoption appointment.  We can do this!  We just need to plan ahead.  Our dedicated staff and key volunteers will continue to care for the BARL animals.  We will also continue to monitor the situation and make changes as we are able.  We ask for your support and your prayers during this time. 


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.
