Help! BARC Is Completely Full - Pets Must Find Homes!

Houston's city animal shelter, the BARC shelter located at 3200 Carr Street, is completely and totally full.  If you have been thinking about adding a pet to your life, now would be a great time to do so.  This weekend, adoptions, which are normally $55 and includes the cost of sterilization and shots, are half price ($27.50, so you don't have to bust out your abacus) .  If you don't want to permanently adopt, but can foster a pet in your home until it finds a happy forever home, that would be super, too.

Photos of available animals can be found HERE.  Adoption hours are 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.  Normal business hours for adoption during the week are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and Thursday from 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.  Just like the beauty shop, BARC is closed on Mondays.

So, don't forget to donate some pet food to aniMeals on Wheels today.  Then, tomorrow, after breakfast (which, I hope, involves some frijoles refritos y barbacoa), head over to BARC and pick out the newest member of your family.

  1. Although the advertising is good, being full is nothing new to BARC. BARC has a 65% kill rate i.e. 27,000 animals killed every year... which means at least 73 animals are killed every single day. There have been days that they killed 150 animals. BARC needs more permanent solutions for getting these animals out alive rather than the once in awhile pleas that they are full.
