$1 cat adoptions at BARC ends this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- BARC is bursting at the seams with cats and kittens that need furever homes.

BARC is dropping adoption fees for all cats/kittens to $1 this weekend. Adoption fees are usually $20 for cats and kittens.

BARC's pet adoption package includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a one-year city pet license, and a pre-registered microchip with lifetime registration.

Details about BARC's adoption process and requirements are listed on their website.

If already have a pet, BARC will offer free spay and neuter services on Oct. 14 and 17. More information is available on BARC's Facebook page.

Pets currently available for adoption can be found on their website, but they encourages all Houstonians to stop by BARC at 3300 Carr Street, Houston, TX 77026 and meet each animal in person. They are open for adoptions seven days a week from noon to 5 p.m.

If you are unable to permanently adopt a pet but would like to help animals in need, BARC encourages you to consider becoming a volunteer or foster pet parent.

BARC is especially in need of foster pet parents. Many dogs and cats enter BARC with treatable skin conditions, upper respiratory infections and other treatable conditions that must be taken care of outside of the shelter before adoption. Some puppies and kittens that enter BARC are too young for adoption and must be fostered before they can go home with a permanent family. By getting these animals out of BARC and into foster homes, they have more space for additional animals as they enter the shelter.
