Welcome to our website


The children really are our future. Education is key to long-term, permanent solutions.


Helping local residents find the resources they need to be their own heroes.


Although we are not a rescue group, we will not turn a blind eye to the suffering of homeless animals in our communities.

How to help


Realizing that often the will is present to help but the resources are absent, Barrio Dogs raises funds to provide assistance to pet owners.


We are an all-volunteer organization. To find out how you can help, email us at info@barriodogs.org.

Barrio Dogs has been working in Houston’s Greater East End since 2010 with the mission of raising awareness about proper animal care and the importance of spaying and neutering pets.


We teach residents that animal birth control and humane treatment and care of pets will create safer, healthier, higher property value communities for themselves and their families.


While we are not a rescue group, we have rescued many street dogs that were in especially bad physical condition, nursed them back to health and found them homes. By focusing on the reasons why homeless animals exist, we shed light on other community problems and possible long-term solutions.

Success Stories



Sebastian is a 1 year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who was found by a Barrio Dogs volunteer. The day he was found, Sebastian was homeless, emaciated and suffering from a multitude of medical problems including rectal prolapse, Demodex mange, intestinal worms, heartworms and ear infections.


Although Barrio Dogs is not rescue group, we could not turn a blind eye to Sebastian’s suffering. We took him in and saw to it that he got the medical care, nutrition and attention that he so desperately needed. After multiple surgical procedures, critical care nursing and lots of love, Sebastian began to get his life back.


Today Sebastian is the most handsome, well-mannered boy you have ever met, living in his forever home in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with his dad, Davis.
