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.
