Unwanted animals become pets: BARC’s no-kill event takes 200+ dogs, cats out of shelter – Your Houston News

Houston’s animal shelter and adoption agency, BARC, said its special event centered around a national no-kill day last Monday was a success, with 161 pets adopted, 70 placed in other ways, and $500 donated.

BARC waived all dog and cat adoption fees June 8 – 11 in honor of the nationally recognized no-kill “Just One Day” event“

We were proud to be involved in the 2012 ‘Just One Day’ event and look forward to taking the pledge again in the future,” said Carlene Lormand, BARC Marketing and Outreach Manager. “Thank you to the many Houstonians who got involved in the event by adopting from BARC over the weekend.”

To continue increasing pet adoptions during one of its busiest animal intake months, BARC is offering a “name your own price” cat and kitten adoption event. Through June 30, potential adopters can decide the adoption fee for their new feline friend. A minimum $5 adoption fee is required. The event celebrates The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ASPCA’s “Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat-Month.”

BARC is also offering dog adoptions for $37.50, half of the regular $75 adoption fee, through June 30. Potential adopters can learn more about BARC’s adoption process including basic eligibility requirements by visiting the “About Adopting at BARC” page on BARC’s website.
