Our Mission

BARL's mission is to humanely care for shelter animals while contributing to community activities that reduce pet overpopulation, encourage responsible pet ownership, protect public health and safety, and promote the human-animal bond.

Our Story

BARL was incorporated in 1981 as a limited-admission animal welfare group to sponsor the care, treatment and well being of animals in the Brookhaven area. In 1982 we received our 501c3 status.

BARL remained an all-volunteer organization until 2006, when we moved into our current facility. At this point, it was necessary to hire a part-time staff person to handle daily cleaning; however, volunteers are still the key to BARL's success.

Over the years, BARL has expanded its services from Lincoln County to encompass neighboring Franklin and Copiah counties.

Meet the Board

Our hard working Board Members are all volunteers that use their talents, passion and drive to keep BARL going.
