BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions

Hours of Operation

*Please note that our  Wellness services are available on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the high demand, we have been experiencing longer than normal wait times. The hours of operation are subject to change based on wait times.

Due to recent budget restrictions placed by the City of Houston, BARC has adjusted our animal intake days to ensure that we are capable of maintaining excellent customer service and animal care. Our wellness clinic, animal enforcement services, and daily adoptions hours remain the same. BARC’s updated intake hours for animal turn-in are 12pm-4pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Our deferred intake process remains in place. Thank you for your understanding and collaboration to make Houston a better place for people and their pets!
