BARC has expanded Foster Program to Outside the City Limits!

Do you love animals but cannot commit to a forever pet?! Become a FOSTER parent! We have precious puppies and kittens you can help us take care of until they can be adopted! BARC has officially expanded our foster program to reach outside of the City limits. Citizens who live up to 15 miles outside of Houston’s City limits are now qualified to foster a pet! Please check out our website for more info!

BARC Gala Video

Check out the wonderful video that was played for our BARC Gala which was held to raise funds for the new building! It is truly touching and shows all the love and hard work that has gone into making BARC Animal Shelter what it is today.


Thank you Natural Pawz!!!

Natural Pawz is such a great supporter of BARC! We truly appreciate the effort they took in dedicating a full day to supporting BARC’s Fixin’ Houston Clinic. They did this by wearing BARC Fixin’ Houston Clinic shirts and donating a portion of the proceeds that day to our cause! It is a program we hope will benefit the City of Houston for years to come by reducing the amount of strays on city streets. THANK YOU Natural Pawz for supporting your community!

Thanks so much to Saint Arnold Brewery and Proler Southwest/Sims Metal Management for making this event possible.

Fixin’ Houston Now Open!

Fixin' Houston


We had an AMAZING week here at BARC! Mayor Parker joined us to launch our brand new in-house, low cost spay/neuter clinic, Fixin’ Houston! This is a huge milestone for BARC and the City of Houston. We look forward to providing low cost spay/neuter services to pets of thousands of Houstonians!
