Houston TX: Urgent. BARC 2-26 medical/behavioral DOGs and CATs. Length-of-Stays need commitment by 9 AM Monday 2-29


[Note: This is my last daily post of the Medical/Behavioral and Length-of-Stay emails from BARC. There have been over 1,000 medical/behavioral alerts for DOGs and over 100 medical/behavioral alerts for CATs in the approximately four-month span I have been publishing them. I have shared them via Facebook and email, as well as Reddit, Google+, Care2, LinkedIn, Stumbleupon, Tumblr and other sites. For future, there will be a few Houston links on a page here at my main blog lizardmarsh.net (see tab above). Also, please see my post regarding 911fosterpets.com the new website for urgent pets being launched by Betsy Saul, Founder of Petfinder.  BARC is looking into registering there.]

Today 2-26 there are 3 new urgent DOG alerts and one new alert for Mimi the CAT with five immature babies.  Please consider the previous days' alerts as well. Everybody at BARC is very urgent.  Medical/behavioral impounds are available for FOSTER or RESCUE:
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.

The weekly-issued Length-of-Stay (LOS) lists for DOGs (40 dogs) and CATs (3 cats) are still critical. For LOS pets, notify BARC by 9AM Mon 2-29 if you wish to ADOPT, FOSTER or RESCUE one or more.

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.
