HPOU to BARC up that same tree again in partnership with pet adoption agency

Officer Levine with Tucker

Paws and Patrol is back, finally overcoming the pandemic woes that have prevented HPD personnel from promoting the adoption of dogs and cats from Houston’s city streets.

HPOU’s BARC coordinator Dan Levine said, “We are back in action just in time for National Puppy Day!”.

Paws and Patrol is a partnership that started in 2019 between BARC and the Houston Police Officers’ Union to highlight our wonderful HPD officers and adoptable pets at BARC.

“We took a pause last year but starting today we hope to bring you a monthly #PawsAndPatrol pick,” Levine reported.

Ever up for this task, Levine kicked things off by posing with Tucker, who was adopted practically as the accompanying pictures were taken.

Levine made this announcement on March 23, a day officially known as National Puppy Day.

“We still have many other dogs and puppies waiting for their forever homes!” the dog-loving Levine said.

For National Puppy Day BARC will reduce adoption fees for all dogs and puppies to celebrate the cutest holiday around. This means $50 adoption fees for all puppies (dogs four months and younger) and WAIVED adoption fees for all dogs five months and older who are honestly just puppies at heart.

Levine said you can learn more about the current adoption process and view available pets on the BARC website.
