The owner and chairman of Brown Automotive Group, William E. Schuiling has managed a thriving chain of car dealerships for more than 45 years. An active philanthropist who supports a variety of causes, William Schuiling donated $25,000 to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc. (BARCS) through his business.

On any given day, there are approximately 300 animals cared for by BARCS, with an additional 500 animals in foster care. Each day, this busy shelter receives an average of 33 new animals, with a total intake of around 12,000 animals per year. The job of caring for these homeless pets could not be done without the help of volunteers. In an average year, hundreds of volunteers log more than 30,000 hours taking care of animals and helping with other work at BARCS. Volunteers walk dogs, socialize cats, and even do laundry.

Shelter volunteers also help with event planning, fundraising, and helping to place animals with temporary foster caretakers and, eventually, their forever homes. Volunteering at a shelter is a great way for an aspiring veterinarian to gain experience and for any animal lover to enjoy spending time caring for dogs, cats, and other pets.
