Who We Are:
The Barren River Animal Welfare Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of homeless animals. BRAWA organized in 1991 with the goal of building an animal shelter in Barren County. In July 1996, thanks to the hard work of volunteers and the generosity of individuals, businesses, and local government, the dream became a reality when the new shelter was completed. In October 2000, a building project with additional space was completed for puppies and small dogs including an outdoor play area. Also, space was allotted for an isolation area and storage. Once again a community of shelter supporters made this addition possible.
BRAWA Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide a safe haven for homeless animals where each will be treated with kindness and respect whether they are with us for three hours or three months.
To promote the adoption of shelter pets that have many advantages over designer dogs and cats. Most animals end up in shelters not because they were less than ideal but because their owners were.
Our goal is to educate the public concerning the need to spay or neuter all pets. Until people take responsibility for preventing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, thousands of innocent animals must continue to be put to death.

BRAWA is always in need of volunteers, foster homes and donations.
