BARC Is An Embarrassment To Our City

Houston’s animal control department, referred to as BARC (Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care), is in such shambles that it’s a total embarassment and black eye on this city! To call it animal “care” is a gross misrepresentation. It’s a display of poor leadership, incompetent management and for sure it is a poor-sighted political approach. If Mayor White cannot even run the “dog-catcher” department with minimal success, how does he think he can be a U.S. Senator for the great state of Texas?

BARC has been recognized as an extreme failure in Houston for decades. Mayor White had a chance to change the negligence and inhumane actions of this department but he has proven he is incapable. He and his team have allowed BARC to continue killing the large majority of adoptable animals brought into the shelter, they have maintained a staff at BARC that has been proven to be incompetent through their history of infractions against animals (as reported in the Houston Chronicle and Houston Press), they have done nothing about allegations of animal abuse, they have done nothing to utilize the efforts of many citizens that have stepped up to help BARC through an organized group called Friends of BARC and they have done nothing to improve the poor facility that houses the animals.
