Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad is a nonprofit, volunteer-based animal rescue organization serving the community in Sussex County, NJ since 1973. Our mission is to provide shelter, veterinary care and permanent placement of stray, abandoned and displaced cats and dogs. We advocate a no-kill policy and promote alternative methods of reducing animal overpopulation such as affordable adoption and spay/neuter programs.
BARKS works in association with the Byram Pound located on Mansfield Drive in Byram Township, N.J, and maintains the cat adoption center at Petsmart in Newton, NJ
