Cold noses, warm hearts!  As we experience the coldest temperatures in the Houston area in 20 years, BARC STARZ would like to remind you a great way to keep warm is snuggling up with a furry friend.  You've heard of a three dog night?  That refers to the number of dogs needed to keep you warm at night (It works for cats, too!).  So if you're short a dog or two (or cat) to keep you warm, come on down to BARC where we've got plenty of furry friends that would love to snuggle up with you tonight!

Introducing two of BARC STARZ...

HUNTER
AT BARC SINCE 8/10! Don't let that pitiful face fool you: HUNTER is a man of action! He'll be bouncing around in his kennel trying madly to get your attention. He is very friendly, though, and wouldn't hurt a fly (OK, maybe that's not the best analogy). HUNTER gets along fine with other dogs. He has a lot of energy and will do great in an active home where he gets plenty of exercise. HUNTER is a big dog at just over 60 pounds with the wiry fur of a terrier. His head is all black and his body is white so he looks like he's wearing a top hat. HUNTER is neutered and microchipped, all dressed up and ready for action.
Look for HUNTER at BARC in South A Ward, I.D. number A1000754.


HARVEY
BIG EYES AND BIG PERSONALITY. This cat has the biggest eyes! Of course, he wouldn't give us a good look for the camera so you'll have to come and see them for yourself. HARVEY is about two-years old and he is a short-haired tabby with a white bib and white socks. He's ready for a lobster dinner! HARVEY is very playful and silly so he seems younger than he is. He likes playing with toys and other cats, and chilling out on top of the scratching post. HARVEY is neutered, microchipped and current on all his shots so he can go home with you today!
Look for HARVEY at BARC in the open adoption room in the North Building, ID number A1008212.
