BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions is hoping to find great foster homes for its animals during Foster Month.

Foster homes have changed the lives of many Houston-area animals. BARC shared before and after pictures to highlight the difference a loving foster home can make.

The shelter is hosting various events during July to highlight the animals in need of a foster home.
