BGAR is a 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer charitable organization (FEIN is 85-1574125) dedicated to finding forever homes for pets who are seeking a loving family. We focus on those in public shelters who are out of time as well as those in immediate danger that other organizations cannot help. We are a fully licensed NC Animal Rescue Shelter (NC license #368) with 100% compliance with state regulations. We serve approximately 13 counties in North Carolina but focus on Eastern rural NC. We have saved approximately 650 animals (primarily cats and kittens), but also dogs. We help owners who are facing financial difficulties keep their beloved pets who are their family members by offering food, veterinary care and medication. We currently help families in three states. Our facility was donated by an animal advocate and our labor and utilities are covered by private funding. We operate on a shoestring budget, but provide the best possible care and lots of love to each and every animal under our care. All donations go strictly to the veterinary needs of the animals as well as food if enough is not donated. We have a network of wonderful loving fosters that allows us to help meet the undending need. We are often the last chance for so many animals. We have saved so many that were injured and would have been put down if we hadn’t stepped in. We would love to share some of our victories (the animal’s victories with you). We are making a difference in impoverished areas. We received NO federal, state or local funding. We rely strictly on donations, fundraisers and the goodwill of the communities we serve. Please consider providing a tax deductible donation (as allowed by IRS regulations. Please consult with your tax professional).
