The BAS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and no-kill facility. Only animals that are too aggressive or that are terminal and in pain are humanely euthanized. The shelter utilizes local vets for medical care and advice for its animals. We do not euthanize an animal to make space, nor do we pick or choose "optimal" animals to take in. For this reason many animals may spend their entire life at our shelter. These are the special animals that many other shelters deem un-adoptable and would put down or not accept due to their behavioral, medical or just plain quirky conditions.
