Wieters to match holiday donations to BARCS

BALTIMORE— Matt and Maria Wieters are helping extend some holiday cheer for animals in need this month.

The Wieters family has offered to match donations to Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 through the end of the year. The tax-deductible donations will help the shelter care for the more than 300 pets that currently live there.

BARCS posted on its Facebook page that, “being an open admission shelter means that, no matter what, our hearts and doors are open to every single animal in need. Matt and Maria understand that the cost to run BARCS each day is enormous—that’s why they are heading up this holiday match.”

This isn’t the first time the Wieters have helped the cause as Matt has been a regular fixture in the Orioles’ annual Pet Calendar, which benefits BARCS. Donations can be made online (http://baltimoreanimalshelter.org)  or mail (to 301 Stockholm St., Baltimore, MD 21230)  by December 31, 2015 to have the Wieters match it.
