Some of the pets on the DOG and CAT blogs
who are available for FOSTER or RESCUE

Today 2-13 there are 13 new medical/behavioral DOG alerts, and three medical CAT alerts so far. Everybody at BARC is very urgent. The shelter is full. An abundance of adoptable pets is viewable on Petharbor. The 26 most-likely-to-die (been there the longest) adoptable dogs are listed in the LOS (Length-of-Stay) post; if you are interested in any of them notify BARC.AID@houstontx.gov by 9AM Monday 2-15. The pets on the following blogs are medical/behavioral impounds who are available for FOSTER or RESCUE.
DOG alerts are at:  http://barcnotifications.blogspot.com/

Please also consider previous days' pet alerts. The shelter is the contact for FOSTER, RESCUE, or ADOPTIONS. They are very busy but rescue-friendly. Please contact them at BARC.Aid@houstontx.gov with any questions. There is a box at top left of each blog to search by ID number, breed, or other key word. Each alert has instructions for placing a hold, and there are icons at the bottom of each to click for sharing by email or social media. Please share quickly and widely for the pets if you can.

Yes, I will take him to Petsmart this Sunday. He started to look a little better, hair on his head is slowly growing back. The paw with bite wounds started to look a little better too.

Call Gulia at 813-263-five five 31 with any questions, email her at Rada72@yahoo.com, or message her on Facebook: 

Tater is a great 6 years young mix, around 75-80 pounds, seeking a good home. He is great with people, including kids. A great companion dog, friendly, playful and happy.

He was rescued from Hillsborough County Animal Services not too long ago. Like most dogs, he needs daily walks. Loves to swim! He is housebroken. Loves to snuggle, loves to fetch toys, and - particularly a great swimmer.

Another great thing about him, he is not a barker. He will only bark when it matters. He is microchipped, altered, and Heartworm negative.

Tater does pull a little on a leash so will need to go to an experienced home. This big boy was listed as a Retriever mix and has a drive to hunt, so no cats, no small dogs, and no alpha dominating dogs please.  He will only go to an approved home. Gulia does home checks and vet checks. A small re-homing fee does apply.

Here are directions to Petsmart on Causeway in Brandon FL where Tater sometimes makes an appearance at the adoption center.

Houston TX: Very Urgent. 2-12 alerts. BARC. Length of Stay DOGs and Medical/Behavioral Alerts DOGs and CATs

A puzzling glitch today is that the posts for Chico
 and the Lab/Dalmation don't seem to appear in scrolling
 thru the DOG blog, but they do appear if
 searching the blog or Google by their ID numbers. 

Update: Now there are 17 DOG alerts for today (including the 26 Length-of-Stay ADOPTABLES), and one new CAT alert - poor orange and white Tabby A1378763 suffered multiple dog bites and is very urgent. Please consider the previous days' alerts too.

Update: There are now 12 posts on the DOG blog for today. Probably more will be added, and maybe CATs too.

Today 2-12 I am posting the Length-of-Stay list for DOGs that BARC emailed yesterday. Chico and the Lab/Dalmation pictured above have alerts I should have posted Wednesday; they appeared as drafts today so I published them and now they are elusive.  I cannot explain this but please click on the highlighted words above, or of course ask BARC, if you are interested in Chico or the Lab/Dalmation.

These blogs are for URGENT medical/behavioral impounds who are available for FOSTER or RESCUE, and Length-of-Stay ADOPTABLE DOGs and CATs who have been impounded the longest. Please notify BARC by 9AM on Monday 2-15-2016 if you are interested in any of the 26 Length-of-Stay DOGs in the alert. They are also available to FOSTER and RESCUE groups. Adoptable pets are always viewable on Petharbor.com.

CONTACT IS RUBI TILLER at rtiller@mercurysigns.com; please share far and wide so this boy does not end up at a shelter.
Please help me find a home or rescue. These nice people took me off the street by their house.
I almost got hit and I was hungry and confused.
These nice people can not keep me because the landlord will not allow 3 dogs. They have 2 dogs already and I can not stay here.
I have only a week to find a place or they are taking me to a shelter. I have been through so much already and I don't want to go to a scary shelter. The humans said  I'm not neutered and probably need shots and a check up. They are not sure how old I am.
I like the children they have here at this home and their dogs. I like to play with them and wish I could stay here.
Please share me and help me find a home.
Thank you!
Oh, they are calling me Milo!
Please contact this nice lady below who saved me.
