Halliburton Home Town Heroes Nominations

It's time again for the Halliburton Home Town Heroes nominations. Everyone did a great job last year getting us in to the top ten, but it takes a top 3 finish for the donation. Nominations can be made once a day at the following website: We have provided all the information for you below as well as a brief sample of why we should be nominated. Voting last until June 5, 2015. We have had so many calls this week for lost/homeless dogs but we do not have any room in boarding or fosters available. This money can go a long way with assisting us in keeping up our education programs, vet bills, and emergencies that we just can't turn away. We appreciate every nomination.

For those of you who would like to cut and paste the information:
Barrio Dogs, Inc.
P.O. Box 230677
Houston, TX 77023
(This is only a suggestion and please feel free to write your own reasons.) Barrio Dogs has been working for five years to improve conditions for Houston's animals by raising awareness, educating residents and when possible, fixing their pets. They are relentlessly pursuing a long term solution to our animal welfare crisis. I support their vision and their approach which is why they are my Hometown Hero.

I want to thank all who voted last year and continue to vote and support Barrio Dogs. Together we can make a difference.
