In an effort to save more pets in Brownsville, The Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center (BARCC) is urgently asking the community to open their homes for 10 days to volunteer as a foster parent.
Several outside rescuers have graciously agreed to transport dogs that are headed to other rescues. As of right now, 20 puppies and dogs have been selected for transport, including adult dogs that have been at the facility for more than 60 days. As we await transport, we need to temporarily move these pets out of the shelter to make additional space for more pets in need.
Dr. Antonio Caldwell, Animal Services Deputy Director of BARCC, emphasizes the importance of finding temporary homes for these pets. “We know our community loves their pets and supports our lifesaving efforts,” said Dr. Caldwell. “Community members can help us save lives by fostering these loving pets for just 10 days.”
Interested individuals can go to the animal shelter to meet the dogs that have been selected for transport. All resources will be provided to the foster families to take care of these pets.
Fostering is highlighted to make a significant difference in saving lives and accommodating the growing population of pets in the community.
Dr. Antonio Caldwell urges potential fosters to visit the shelter promptly for more information. The Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center is located at 416 FM 511, Brownsville, Texas.
Interested in adopting? BARCC has dogs and cats looking for their fur-ever home. All pets are properly vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered before they are adopted or fostered.
