About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of the Anderson County Humane Society, Inc, doing business as “BARC”, the Humane Society, is to offer refuge, care, nourishment, and a second chance for life to abandoned, injured, lost and mistreated animals.


We are committed to the protection of all animals from cruelty, neglect, carelessness and ignorance. 


We will foster a sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward all animals. With education of the public, we will support enforcement of all laws concerning the welfare of animals and the promotion of responsible pet ownership.


We will strive to eliminate the tragic surplus of homeless animals by educating the public of the importance of sterilization. We will provide painless euthanasia when needed.


To keep members apprised of our financial situation, BARC, The Humane Society makes available our most recent IRS Form 990. [Coming Soon] The entire document is available for Public Inspection at the animal shelter. Financial services are donated to BARC, The Humane Society by Bolton Sullivan, Taylor & Weber, L.L.P.
