Beacon Animal Rescue Centre – Saving one life at a time

Our ethos is a modest one; to save one life at a time. We believe that animals deserve a chance for a better life no matter where they are born in the world. That is why BARC are committed to rescuing dogs and cats from both within the UK, as well as rescuing animals from countries where they face extreme hardships and have no other alternatives, like Romania. In addition, we also contribute towards neutering programmes in countries that need it most.


Proudly supported by Burns Pet Nutrition
