BROOKLYN - After more than 20 years serving the borough, the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition was honored with the co-naming of their street.

The no-kill shelter for homeless, stray and abused animals can now be found on BARC Avenue. Its location is at 253 Wythe Ave.

Since BARC opened in 1987, the owners say they have taken in thousands of dogs and cats. They say thousands have been adopted since their inception.

As a no-kill facility, BARC does not put animals to sleep unless they are naturally in pain.
