The mission of the Houston BARC Foundation is to improve the quality of life for all animals in Houston, especially those at risk under the care of the City of Houston BARC municipal animal shelter.
Donations to the Foundation directly benefit animals sheltered at, or otherwise cared for by, BARC through purchases of medical, kennel, sanitary and other supplies and equipment.
The Foundation's efforts are also focused on raising public awareness among all Houstonians about homeless and at risk animals throughout our community
