Welcome to our website

 

Barrio Dogs is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to creating a better future for animals and the community.

 

Education

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

Communities

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

Adoptions

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

Donations

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

Rescues

Community education is our core work, but the street dogs need our help, out of necessity we partner with and support rescue groups. Become a transporter, foster or adopter today!

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

Pancho

Ms. Salazar

Ms. Salazar was going through a tough time during COVID. Her husband became ill and then her doggie had an eye infection and was struggling to make ends meet. We were happy to be able to sponsor the vet services and she has shared with us that both her husband and doggie are much better.
