New extended hours at BARC!  You asked for it!  BARC is now open later on Thursdays and Saturdays for your adoption convenience.  Starting July 24, the new hours are as follows:  Sunday from 12 -4; Monday –Closed; Tuesday from 11:30 – 5:30; Wednesday from 11:30 – 5:30; Thursday from 11:30 – 7; Friday from 11:30 – 5:30; Saturday from 12 – 6. BARC will be closed to the public on Mondays to allow for deep cleaning and to conduct training. Volunteers are still welcome 7 days a week, of course, so make plans to join us this summer at the new BARC!

Featured with this story is DALLAS!  It's not easy taking pictures of animals, especially on a warm, sunny day when all they want to do is frolic in the grass. DALLAS was having fun doing all the usual dog stuff — running, sniffing and exploring — and our photographer was starting to get exasperated, when suddenly DALLAS sat right down and seemed to smile. One shot. Then she got up and went right back to doing dog stuff. DALLAS is a friendly, happy dog that loves to give hugs. She seems to be housebroken and is obviously very smart. With a bath and a good grooming she will be a real star. DALLAS is spayed, microchipped and heartworm negative.  Look for DALLAS at BARC in South A31, I.D. number A1016896.

VIEW ALL THIS WEEK'S BARC STARZ!

Happy Tails
Thanks to volunteer Norma who made it her goal to find a home for Fancy, this darling spotted dog is sleeping safe and warm with her new family tonight!  And major thanks to everyone who stepped up to save handsome Charlie! He is out of BARC and safe with a rescue group.

Remember Saturdays all adoptions are half-price: only $27.50!  Plus free hot dogs and cold drinks courtesy of friends of BARC.
