Happy Tails


Layla came to BARC with extensive burn wounds from being trapped in a burning apartment building during severe flooding. Our vets helped Layla survive her injuries until our friends at Rescued Pets Movement could pull her and get her further medical care. She has finally healed and moved on to a new life in Colorado. We wish Layla the best in her future and are proud to be a part of her success story!

This is a great before and after of Bear!  He was first here on a quarantine for a bite case and claimed by owner in 2014.   Then he was surrendered by owner in horrible condition February 2016.  One of our regular fosters Deena Colburn pulled him and has attached some current  pictures of him.  He has been transferred to Southeast TX Lab Rescue.Look at the amazing transformation of Bear since he has been with Deena! Just goes to show how important foster care can be for some of our doggies here!



Please meet Holly! She was adopted in September with heartworms and is loving her new home! Please see her story below:

Attached are some pictures of our little girl and I wanted you to know that your decision to put her into your adoption program even though she is heartworm positive was a blessing!

She is turning out to be an amazing dog!  (Your trainer was spot on with her feedback about Holly)

We have treated her heartworms (We decided to go the aggressive route given that she is young) and that has been little challenging given the severity of that treatment.  She is doing well and will need hip surgery next for what appears to be an old injury.

This little girl has brought so much joy to our family and we are thankful for her!  (Now if my cats will welcome her, then life will be great!)

Thanks again and please feel free to pass along this sweet success story!


Sweet story from a BARC adopter. Check out the cute story below!

“My daughter was recently in Houston for an Animal Cruelty Investigation class.  Even though she works for the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services and sees her share of adoptive animals, she saw Miles and sent me a picture of him.  At the time, we were dealing with the impending passing of our beloved 15 year old schnauzer mix and she thought Miles (now named Franklin) would be a good addition to our family, including our 12 year old yellow lab, Jefferson.  She brought him home to San Antonio, where we met her with her two pit bulls, which we were watching while she was in Houston.

Franklin had an upper respiratory infection when we brought him home, but as soon as he was put on antibiotics his personality changed and he has become a very loved member of our family in a very short time!

Thanks for taking him in as a stray and taking care of him until he could find his furever home with us!!

This was a rescue pup that was fostered to good health by one of our favorite BARC employees, Marolyn, and will now become an addition to her home! Look how far little Hercules has come!

Check out Spot he was a Length of Stay dog early in December 2014. He was transferred to our partner RPM (Rescued Pets Movement) and now happily resides  in Colorado.

Spot:  “Aspiring lap dog.  It was love at first sight.  Spot jumped up with all 4’s onto Earl’s lap and gave his face a good washing.”
