BARC Offers Fee-Waived and "Name Your Price"
Cat and Kitten Adoptions July 20 - July 22
Learn How to be a Foster Pet Parent July 30

It's raining cats at BARC! To help get as many cats and kittens adopted this weekend as possible, the shelter is hosting fee-waived and "Name Your Price" cat and kitten adoptions from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, July 20 - Sunday, July 22, 2012 at BARC, 3200 Carr Street, Houston 77026.

The fee-waived adoptions are for PurrFurred cats - those that have been at the shelter more than 20 days - and "Name Your Price" adoptions for all other cats and kittens. The "Name Your Price" promotion requires a $5 adoption fee. Look for photos of PurrFurred cats in an album on BARC's Facebook page today.

To learn how to get involved in BARC's foster program, attend a Foster Introduction Monday, July 30, 2012, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the McGovern-Stella Link Neighborhood Library, 7405 Stella Link, Houston 77025.
