Friends of BARC
Friends of BARC was founded in 2003 by a group of animal lovers looking to support the humane care and treatment of the animals residing at BARC—the City of Houston Animal Shelter—and to help them find a chance for a better life.
While BARC is fully funded with taxpayer funds, Friends of BARC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is funded 100% by donations. All donations made to our group are used to help the animals residing at the shelter. In addition to sponsoring weekly adoption events, we step in and help when the city budget is unable to support the needs of the animals.
Thank you for your donation of a Kuranda ShelterBed to give the animals at BARC the quality rest they deserve.
