BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions Introduces First
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.
