Houston TX: Urgent. 2-19 BARC medical/behavioral DOG and CAT alerts

Update: An owner-surrendered fearful Chihuahua puppy has been added.

Today 2-19 there are four new medical/behavioral DOG alerts and none for CATs. There are still adoptable pets on the Length-of-Stay lists issued 2-16 for DOGs and CATs (been there the longest, therefore most in danger) whom BARC needs to hear from people about before 9AM on Monday 2/22. Everybody at BARC is very urgent. Medical/behavioral impounds are available for FOSTER or RESCUE. 
DOG alerts are at: 
CAT alerts are at:
Please consider the previous days' alerts as well. An abundance of adoptable pets is viewable on Petharbor. The shelter is the contact for FOSTER, RESCUE, or ADOPTIONS. They are very busy but rescue-friendly. Please contact them at with any questions. There is a box at top left of each blog to search by ID number, breed, or other key word such as name. 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. In viewing on a phone, the blogs are set for mobile viewing but one can click at the bottom where it says "View web version" to see the whole layout.
