Check out the BAAC on
Please Note: Briggs will be closed to the public on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. We will re-open on Wednesday, April 19 on our regularly scheduled hours. We wish you and yours a Happy Easter!
For those wishing to donate, we are always in need of new kongs for our dogs. They have enjoyed the frozen kong treats during the hot summer and like to chew on them during the winter as well. Our kong supply dwindles down due to the constant chewing. If you would like to donate any kongs (new, never used) we would be most appreciative. And so would the BAAC dogs! Thank you!
Please Note: We always have more dogs and cats available for adoption than are shown on the website. Many popular animals are shown to the public the same day they're available, before we're able to get their photos for the website. If you have already completed an application online, you are ahead of the game. That way, if the adoption counselor has already reviewed your application and spoken with you, the counselor has an idea of what type of animal you're looking for. You are also welcome to just stop by during our hours of operation to see which dogs or cats are currently available and complete an application at that time.
The BAAC dogs are continually loving their frozen kong treats! If you are interested in helping to stuff them with goodies, please contact Jeaneva Gagne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: We are closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays. If you email or call us about an animal after 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, our adoption staff will not be available to respond until Wednesday when they return to the center. They will begin returning calls and emails on that day.
We stay at our humane holding capacity for cats and dogs and rarely open on a day or two notice since we are a no-kill shelter. We do not take waiting lists for people wanting to surrender their animal as their situations can change on a daily basis and we don't have the staff available to track down people who have called us. But if you want to check back, we will do our best to provide you with any referrals or assistance that we can on re-homing your animal. Approximately 85-90% of the animals that Briggs takes in are dogs and cats who are rescues from being strays, neglected or abused animals in desperate need.
As always, if you have, or know of anyone who has kittens, please check with your local shelter to see if they can help. Remember, spaying and neutering is the best way to help cut back on stray and homeless animals. Please encourage anyone you know with unaltered animals, to get their cat or dog spayed or neutered. You can also tell them about our Spay Today program which assists people to spay and neuter their animals at a lower cost.

If you know of anyone interested in adopting an animal, please ask them to consider the BAAC so that we will be able to take in & help more of the many homeless dogs and cats in our area. We do not euthanize animals in order to make room for other animals, so unless we find homes for the animals we have, we cannot take in any more. Thank you.
Briggs is always in need of volunteer groomer(s). If you, or anyone you know might be interested, please contact us at: email@example.com. Thank you!
The BAAC is a program of The National Humane Education Society, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and does not receive any funds from federal or local governments. All donations are greatly appreciated to help us help the animals!
