Christmas Day is your chance to add a four-legged friend to your family.

BARC, Houston's animal shelter, is open today. The shelter decided to open on Christmas day because of its capacity crisis.

There are too many cats and dogs in the shelter, and BARC hopes they can get the animals adopted out today.

The shelter is open today from noon till 6pm.
