Animal Services Annual Community Report

Over the past several years, Baltimore County Animal Services (BCAS) has truly transitioned from simply a place to house unwanted animals to a community resource for pets and their owners.

By 2016, many changes had been set in motion to maximize the lifesaving potential of the organization. Target Zero, a non-profit group, was invited to complete a shelter assessment (PDF) and offer recommendations for further development. In the years that followed, even more evolution occurred as BCAS programs were added and expanded.

In 2018, shelter consultant Dr. Sara Pizano returned to BCAS, now part of Team Shelter USA. Her prior visit with Target Zero allowed her to assess the newest changes and make comparisons to similar animal shelters nationwide. Review the details from her 2018 progress report (PDF).
