BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions Introduces First
Mayor's Pets of the Week

BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions announces the first ever Mayor's Pets of the Week with Houston Mayor Annise Parker. Mayor Parker is championing some of the many adorable adoptables available at BARC during the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge by snapping weekly photos with a dog and cat. The Mayor's Pets of the Week will be posted to BARC's Facebook page every Monday through the end of October 2012.

Duke is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is about 10 weeks old. His animal ID is A1086827. Duke is a very sweet boy that loves to cuddle and give puppy kisses. He's playful and loyal and will win your heart in a second! Find out more about Duke's story on BARC's Facebook page.

Sierra is a female Domestic Short Hair who is about 6 months old. Her animal ID is A1087884.
