The Brookhaven Animal Rescue League is hosting a fundraiser September 22 called “Canines, Cats, & Corks”. This wine and spirits tasting event is sponsored by Brookway Wine and Spirits.
All of the proceeds will benefit the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League.
The event will take place at the Brookhaven Building at 1154 Beltline Drive in Brookhaven from 6:00-9:00 p.m. on September 22.
There will be a silent auction with many amazing things available to buy donated by the community.
The “Barks & Bids Online Auction” kicks off September 18 and will wrap up September 25. Check back on BARL’s FB page to see auction items. They will be posting the auction link soon!
BARL does not receive any government funding, therefore, they are dependent on donations from people and businesses, and many fund-raising efforts.

In 2020, the shelter took in over 1,400 dogs and cats, working to find them homes through adoption or transport to other shelters, where they found homes.

In addition, they helped spay and neuter over 240 community owned animals in the tri-county area.

The shelter became a 501c3 in 1982. BARL remained an all-volunteer organization until 2006, until they moved into their current facility and had to hire a part-time staff person to clean daily. The shelter said that the key to their success is volunteers.

The Mission of BARL:

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.
