ADOPTING T-BAR’S DOGS AND CATS
T-Bar’s dogs and cats will be spayed and neutered before being adopted. The  $125 donation fee for dogs and the $75 donation fee for cats helps cover the cost of the spaying and neutering the animals and includes a one-year membership in T-Bar – a $25 value. Membership and donation fees help us pay vet bills for our animals (the average vet cost to TBAR for one animal is $150-200). Any dog or cat you adopt will be spayed or neutered, wormed and have all his or her shots.

If you would like more information about adopting from T-Bar, please contact us at (936) 878-2349 or send us an email to help@t-bar.org. If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of our dogs or cats, you will need to complete and send the Foster/Adopt Application found below:

If you cannot adopt, please consider fostering. We are always looking for foster homes to help give these dogs and cats individual attention and lots of love. Click here to read about our new 6 week foster care program.


Things to Consider Before Adopting a Dog or Cat

Please do not choose a dog based on a photograph or physical description alone.  Consider how the dog will suit YOUR lifestyle, energy level, fenced area, house size, household members (both human & animal), and your time available to dedicate to grooming, obedience training, & socialization for the next 10-15 years.  Consider how many times you will move in the next 10 years, how the kids will either arrive and take all your time or grow up and move away and then YOU will have to take care of the dog. 

Before you adopt a particular dog, please consider if you will be a good home for that dog for the rest of its life.
