HOUSTON, TX - The holidays are a time for hope and cheer.

But for some, the holiday season is a lonely one, especially for animals in shelters.

BARC Animal Shelter is bursting at the seams with pets in need of a loving home.

"We are running a five dollar adoption fee special today all the way up till the close of business on Sunday...that five dollar adoption fee special applies to all animals, any age, any breed...dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens," said the adoptions coordinator Lynette Bodmer.

C'mon....what's better than the unconditional love of an animal? So why not give yourself the gift of a new best friend this year?

As cute as these critters are, pets aren't toys, so if you can`t handle the responsibility of being a pet owner, it`s best not to break an animal`s heart.

So if you`re looking to add a new member to your family, head on over to BARC to find your forever friend.

Adopting a furry friend, not only saves an animal`s life, but it just might save yours too.
