BARCS evacuates shelter animals, due to threat of flooding
Animals from the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, or BARCS, were moved from their Stockholm Street facility to 1st Mariner Arena to avoid flooding from Hurricane Sandy. (Barbara Haddock Taylor/Baltimore Sun)
Because the shelter lies in a flood-prone part of South Baltimore, BARCS convened a team of volunteers for the emergency evacuation.
In a matter of hours, they safely moved more than 100 cats and nearly that many dogs.
The animals will ride out the storm at the arena.
