If you’ve been thinking about adopting a pet, this weekend is the time to do it. Dogs and cats are $5 at BARC.

The shelter is always full but now it’s seriously overcrowded. BARC’s capacity is 550, but this week they’ve received an average of 150 animals per day. You don’t have to be good at math to know that’s a recipe for disaster or euthanasia. If you’re not ready to adopt, you can save a life by fostering a dog or cat. Head out to BARC at 3300 Carr, 77026 and save a furry friend.
