The Cinco de Mayo Street Fest sponsored by the East End Chamber of Commerce was a huge success. The weather was hot but that did not stop the crowds from the East End and throughout Houston from attending the Street Fest, the first in what will undoubtedly be an annual event. Barrio Dogs was pleased to be there too along with our literature, t-shirts and volunteers as we continue to spread the word that spay and neuter is the only solution to animal overpopulation.
