Our Story

Friends of BARC was founded in 2003 by a group of animal lovers looking to support the humane care and treatment of the animals residing at BARC—the City of Houston Animal Shelter—and to help them find a chance for a better life.

With Your Help, We are Making BARC a Better Place

Thanks to all the supporters, volunteers and fosters that make BARC a better place. 

Our Mission

Dedicated volunteers providing financial, physical and emotional support to the homeless animal population at Houston’s BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions.
