Nov. 29, 2012 – Law students, faculty and staff took a break from final exam preparations to pet and play with four puppies during “Smooch a Pooch Day” at the University of Houston Law Center. The Law Center’s Student Animal Legal Defense Fund hosted the play date and fundraiser. The visiting canines were from BARC, the City of Houston’s Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility.

Organized by private citizens and with the support of Mayor Parker and The Houston City Council, the BARC Foundation strives to improve the quality of life and survival rate of homeless animals in Houston. BARC works to raise money to support homeless animal prevention programs, and to make spay and neuter assistance programs accessible to Houston residents.

The Fundraiser took in $517.00 in donations. Click here for a photo gallery from the event.
