Barrio Dogs

Barrio Dogs is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to creating a better future for animals and the community.

Run Houston! University of Houston Presented by Norton Rose Fulbright 10K, 5K, 1K

September 19 - October 31, 2021

The animal overpopulation problem in Houston is beyond critical. Chronically underfunded, our city and county animal shelters are inundated.  Barrio Dogs is addressing the problem head-on in the community with our youth and residents.

For nearly 12 years, Barrio Dogs has educated, empowered, and transformed Houston’s East End community on the issues of animal overpopulation and responsible pet ownership. 

Barrio Dogs focuses on a bilingual, solution-oriented approach, striving to reach the root of the problem by engaging with residents about the responsibility that comes with pet ownership. To date, we have educated more than 13,500 adults and 7,100 children about proper pet care, affordable spay neuter options, and identifying and reporting animal cruelty.

Barrio Dogs will continue the fight for change--hitting the streets of the vibrant East End to help improve the lives of animals by promoting spay & neuter and animal care best practices.

However, to do this, we need your support.  Please consider donating to my commitment and race to create a better life for our animals and the community.  Gracias!!!
