Houston BARC Foundation - BARCly Web Application

BARC is the City of Houston’s Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility. BARC is required by law to accept every animal that comes through its doors regardless of breed, temperament, health conditions, and circumstance. The mission of the Houston BARC Foundation is to improve the quality of life for all animals in Houston, especially those at risk under the care of the City of Houston BARC municipal animal shelter.  

We created BARCly , which is a mobile-first web application that provides users an interactive way to view and learn more about the currently available pets at BARC. Users are able to take a quiz that matches them to available pets, browse through their matched pets by swiping through cards, and search through all available pets.

BARCly also provides features that help streamline an adopter’s visit to the shelter, such as a detailed overview of each pet, an interactive adoption checklist, and the ability to save pets as favorites.
