BARC Has A New Cat Building, And We Are Avoiding All Double-Entendres
Hey you -- yeah, you: You know what you need in your life? A cat. Or a kitten. Or several of each. And you know the best way to procure one? By going to the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care's grand opening for its new cat building Saturday, from noon until four.
Adoption fees will be half-price all weekend, plus there will be discounted license fees, microchipping, and discounted rabies and other vaccinations.
And hey, Friends of BARC will have free hot dogs and burgers on hand, so you can treat your new furry friend to a home-cooked meal. Plus, photographer extraordinaire Robyn Arouty, of our own "I Wanna Be Your Dog (or Cat)" will be there to take awesome photos of you and your new four-legged friend.
The building itself "features 85 enclosures, two 'Get Acquainted' rooms with benches for adopters, two large sunlit 'Free Roam' rooms, and space to administer medications and manage data files," according to a BARC press release.
As BARC has been especially overcrowded lately, now is a great time to rescue a critter and bring home a loving new addition to the family. For more info, check out www.houstonbarc.com.
