Mayor’s Pets of the Week

This week’s pets are Princess the sweet calico kitty and Harru the fun-loving terrier mix!

Princess is an adorable one and a half year old Calico. She absolutely loves to be groomed and purrs like a little engine with gratitude when you snuggle with her. Princess loves spending her time bird watching and mingling with other feline friends. She is spayed, has age-appropriate vaccinations, a one-year pet license and a pre-registered microchip. Come and meet her along with many other adorable and adoptable felines, at BARC.

Harru is a white and black Fox Terrier Wire mix that is approximately 5 years old. He is a sweet boy who loves long walks and back rubs He will be your faithful friend and will go on long car rides and weekend trips with you. He makes the perfect family pet because of his calm, laid back nature. Harru is neutered, has age-appropriate vaccinations, a one year pet license and pre-registered microchip. It is a very busy time at BARC, so we have many dogs and puppies of all shapes and sizes available for adoption. Come visit us to meet them today.

Foster Help Needed

How can you resist?!?!
How can you resist?!?!
Attention Houston! We need YOU to help us with our foster babies! We have over 75 puppies, kittens and PurrFurred pets that need foster moms and dads. This is a great way to help save lives if you want to help but can’t take in a permanent pet. Plus, we have expanded our geographic boundaries for fosters, which means we allow families in certain areas outside of the City limits to foster! Go to this link to read more about our foster program and the areas where we have expanded foster boundaries:
