Houston TX: Urgent. 2-22 BARC medical/behavioral DOGs and CATs

A few of the BARC dogs in need of medical foster or rescue

Note: My blogging of BARC's emails concerning Medical/Behavioral and Length-of-Stay DOGs and CATs will cease as of 2/27.  Ideally BARC staff could put their alerts online via their own blog or webpage. BARC's foster and rescue partners could subscribe to a blog and automatically receive alerts via email in their inboxes as soon as published. For future, there will be a few Houston links on a page here at my main blog lizardmarsh.net (see tab above).

Update: A malnourished Boxer A1380134 impounded 2-19 has been added to the DOG blog.

Today 2-22 so far there are three new medical/behavioral DOG alerts and no new alerts for CATs, but more alerts may be added. Please consider the previous days' alerts as well. Everybody at BARC is very urgent. Medical/behavioral impounds are available for FOSTER or RESCUE. 
DOG alerts are at:  http://barcnotifications.blogspot.com/ 
CAT alerts are at:  http://catnoticesbarc.blogspot.com/
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 and one can click at the bottom where it says "View web version" to see the whole layout. 

An abundance of adoptable pets is viewable on Petharbor as well as Petfinder (see Friends of Barc for quick link to Petfinder page). 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.
