Berkeley Animal Welfare Fund (BAWF)
Architects Drawing of New Proposed Shelter
In 2002, the voters of Berkeley supported Measure I, a property tax, to build a new, safe model animal shelter to replace the crumbling facility on 2nd Street in Berkeley. But there is simply not enough money to build the shelter.

1. Build a ‘green’ animal shelter, as ‘sustainable’ and environmentally friendly as possible
2. BACS has the lowest euthanasia rate of any city shelter in CA. Only severe medical or behaviour cases are euthanised.
3. Berkeley is a model shelter with progressive ideals. BACS keeps animals for as long as it takes to find them an adoptive home or rescue
4. The current shelter is dilapidated and floods every winter
5. BACS provides a low cost or free spay neuter program for every Berkeley resident, regardless of status.
