HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center (BARCC) is at capacity and they are looking to the public for adoptions and fostering.

Tuesday morning’s visitor from BARCC is a 10-week-old Labrador mix named “Toby”. He, along with his sisters, are up for adoption.

Adoption fees have been reduced to $49 for dogs and cats and BARCC is also looking for volunteers and donations to help with its at-capacity issue.

With Halloween a few weeks away, you can join BARCC on Oct. 21 from 2 to 6 p.m. at Stillman Dog Park next to the shelter for its annual Howl-O-Ween Extravaganza.

The shelter is partnering with the Brownsville Animal Defense for this event and all pets are welcome but must be on a leash.

Food, vendors, music, games, puppy contests, and look-a-like contests will be available.

For more information on adopting or fostering Toby or another animal contact BARCC at 956-544-7351.
