|UPDATE!!!! Last Chance BARC Dogs Need out by Monday, 1/8
For those of you asking for an update…. here it is! Truly, wow is all I can say! Thanks to all of you, so far 25 of the original 30 dogs from the “last chance” email sent on Jan. 4th have found permanent or foster homes. Thank you to everyone who has read, forwarded and responded by coming out to BARC to adopt or foster a homeless animal. You truly have saved lives! Kind of restores your faith in mankind, now doesn’t it?
Could we make it 100%? The 5 dogs remaining are Mojo, Dusty, Toto, Tawny and Ginger. In addition, there are 9 other dogs at the cut-off date, which did not make my original email due to my limited time and photography skills. This certainly was no fault of these dogs..... This email is their last and only chance. I’ve added their photos to this file. That makes 14 TOTAL dogs that need out by Monday, JAN 8th at 5pm. If you are interested in one of these dogs, but absolutely can’t make it on Monday to the shelter, BARC has allowed us to place holds on them until this FRIDAY, JAN. 12th. That is the absolute deadline for holds and it cannot be extended.
Can you help save one of these dogs???? Please double click on the photos and read the comments for a little more information. Don't hesitate to email or call us for more information.
As I said before, these dogs will require some extra love and attention. Being in a shelter for several months causes many dogs to become distrustful of humans and overprotective of food or toys. For those of you who have or will give these dogs a chance, remember this: "The basic period of adjustment can be anywhere from
six to twelve weeks. If you're committed you'll get there. Go into
this with your eyes open...and then stand back and marvel at the transformation. It will knock your socks off!" (from "Second Hand Dog", Carol Lee Benjamin)
For only $55 you can adopt one of these dogs. You also can provide foster care to prevent them from euthanasia. However, please do not take on a foster if you cannot commit to keeping the animal until a permanent home is found.
BARC is the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care
It is located at 3200 Carr St., Houston, TX 77026
The shelter is open Mon-Fri from 10-5:30 and Sat/Sun 12-4.
Thanks again for reading and forwarding. Together, we've made a difference to these lost souls.
