Meet Broady

Barrio Dogs is happy to be participating in 2015's Clear the Shelters program with Telemundo and KPRC Click2 Houston. One of the dogs we're featuring is Broady. We found him in the East End's Broadmoor Park area with an aluminum light fixture around his neck. When we asked the residents in the area about him, they told us he was homeless although no one admitted putting the fixture on him. For more information about Broady, contact tauna@barriodogs.org.

Meet Otis

Barrio Dogs is happy to be participating in 2015's Clear the Shelters program with Telemundo and KPRC Click2 Houston. One of the dogs we're featuring is Otis, who we found in the Third Ward with an embedded collar around his neck. 

Otis was our first embedded collar dog and we used his picture to raise awareness of this situation that occurs when people put a collar on a dog and later abandon the dog or it runs away. As the dog grows, the collar cannot expand and the dog's skin grows around it resulting in severe infection and injury. Because Otis was rescued, he recovered but if not treated, an animal probably will not survive an embedded collar. For more information about Otis, contact tauna@barriodogs.org.
