Saturday was the official grand opening of the new cat building at BARC! This is the first of many major improvements to BARC! A totally new building exclusively for cats!! Meet some of the friendly felines (and canines) looking for new homes.
That’s KRIS featured with this story. The first kitty you are likely to meet upon entering the free-roaming cat room is KRIS, an out-going brown tabby. KRIS is just a little girl with a tiny, squeaky meow, but she has a lot to tell you. "Are you here to take me home with you?" is tops on her mind. When she's not playing or being silly, KRIS likes to purr and "make biscuits" on your lap. Look for KRIS at BARC in the new cat building, Open Adoption Room 25, I.D. number A1019905.
Congratulations to Radar, BARC’s longest resident, who was adopted by a family who came out in the rain all the way from Louisiana for this special dog!
Brindle pittie STAR was adopted at BARC’s adoption booth in the Galleria.
Carly the pretty husky mix is in a new home tonight.
Tortie kitty Lexi found her forever home. We've already heard from her new family and they tell us they love Lexi and she's doing great!
