Giving Tuesday 2021

The Houston BARC Foundation is taking on a new initiative to support adopters who select a heartworm positive dog. We will now fund the full heartworm treatment for HW+ dogs adopted from BARC.

Did you Know?

  • 32% of all dogs turned into BARC are heartworm positive.
  • The average cost of heartworm treatment for a dog in Houston ranges from $800 to $1,000.

You can help increase their chance of adoption by covering their adopter’s cost of heartworm treatment!

The Houston BARC Foundation is also starting a capital campaign for a mobile grooming unit, to be stationed at BARC. The cost of this unit is estimated at $200,000.

Did you Know?

  • To maximize available kennel space, BARC currently has no designated space to wash the animals brought into their care.
  • In addition to making them more comfortable, a clean pet is more adoptable.

You can contribute to the cost of a mobile grooming unit, which will give BARC staff a safe, warm place to get those adoptables squeaky clean!
