BRAT voted top Texas shelter in Petfinder Contest
I am pleased to announce that BRAT was voted the top shelter in the state of Texas in the Petfinder Shelter Challenge!
Because of all the votes from our members and friends, we will receive a $1,000 grant from Petfinder---in addition to the $1,000 grant we received for winning one of the weekly challenges.
This is quite an accomplishment given that there were literally thousands of shelters eligible for prizes in this contest. I believe that BRAT finished as the #7 shelter in the country.
This money will come in very handy given that we are currently running a yearly deficit of around $7.000. We have had some very high vet bills for BRAT dogs this year. While adoption fees help cover most costs, we depends our donations from our volunteers, friends and adopters to keep us solvent.
Please consider making a donation to BRAT. For more information, click here:

Thank you for your generosity—and for your votes in the Petfinder Shelter Challenge!
President, BRAT, Inc.
