Big Hair Animal Rescue (BHAR) is a volunteer run 501c3 rescue located in Central Massachusetts. We are foster based and have foster homes up and down the North ...East coast from Maine to New Jersey. Since being founded in 2015 we have saved over 300 lives. We are non breed specific; however, we primarily focus on helping Chows and breeds that over populate shelters like Chihuahuas, hounds, pit bulls and cats.
Big Hair Animal Rescue has a strong focus on helping community cats. We urge you to get involved! We can assist you with and train you on trapping, building shelters and will schedule spay and neuter surgeries for your feral/stray cats at no cost to you. We have assisted with several colonies in the Boston area as well as in Southbridge Massachusetts. If you need assistance please reach out!
BHAR is a registered public charity that relies on the generosity of volunteers and the public. Donations go towards providing medical care, training, and supporting our fosters with food, bedding and supplies for our dogs and cats in rescue. We typically have 30-40 cats and dogs in our care at all times.
Every day thousands of adoptable shelter pets are euthanized in the US; BHAR is committed to helping one shelter pet at a time and placing them in loving homes. Please help us make a difference for the forgotten ones that no one has come for.
We are as strong as the community that holds us up. Together, we can do more than we can do alone. Let's bring our abilities and passions together.
There are many ways to join us and support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, events, and ways that you can get our message to your friends and family.
