BARC, the City of Houston's Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, announces 138 adoptions during its participation in BISSELL Pet Foundation’s Spring National “Empty the Shelters" (ETS) event. From May 2 - 15, a total of 13,504 homeless pets were adopted from 280 shelters in 45 states.

Since 2016, “Empty the Shelters” is the nation’s largest funded adoption event, impacting the lives of more than 96,000 pets through adoption.
 
BARC participated May 3 -15 and offered discounted $10 adoptions as well as waived fees during select days for pets including dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. In total, 100 dogs and 38 cats were adopted into their forever homes through the spring Empty the Shelter campaign, making it one of the City’s most successful ETS campaigns to date. 
 
“Empty the Shelters” is BISSELL Pet Foundation’s largest initiative and continues to grow each year to provide critical relief to overcrowded shelters. The nationwide event set a new record during this event with 280 participating shelters. BISSELL Pet Foundation provides grants for each adoption - $100 per dog and $50 per cat - allowing shelters to reduce adoption fees to $25 or less. Pets must be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted out, an additional cost savings for the family, making the choice to adopt even more affordable.“Right now, shelters are so full, and pets are experiencing longer stays. Our partners are reporting that ‘Empty the Shelters’ is driving even more adopters into their facilities. With the decline in transport, local adoptions have become our primary lifesaving tool,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “This is an expensive program for our small foundation, but it is a proven success, and we can’t turn our backs when we know we can save thousands of lives in one event.”   This Memorial Day weekend, BARC hopes to repeat the success from this campaign by offering $5 pet adoptions from noon to 5 p.m. on May 28 and 29, for all fixed and ready-to-go dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. Pets must already be spayed or neutered at the time of adoption to qualify for this promotion.To meet our adoptable pets, stop by BARC’s Adoption Center at 3300 Carr St. from 12 – 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday or visit http://www.houstontx.gov/barc/adopt_a_pet.html to see our adoptable pets. For more information on BARC’s full services, visit www.houstonbarc.com.

I've always dreamt of winning BIG in the lottery. I surfed the internet for help to win the lottery massively and I was directed to the DR Amber website. I had a chat with him about what I needed and he assured me that his spell will make me become a lottery winner. He got back to me after 3 days with the numbers that I needed to play the lottery and told me to believe in myself. I felt enveloped by the control of the spell. I took his words and played the Mega Millions Lottery. Two days later, I was sent an email that I've won the sum of 107 Million Dollars. I was shocked and couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing. Immediately I was given the cash prize, I stopped working. I want to say a very big thank you to DR Amber for helping people like us who really need help. Now I know that there's absolutely nothing too hard for DR Amber to do. To get in touch with him, email : amberlottotemple@yahoo.com or click his webpage URL___ amberlottotemple.com
