The Jurassic Bark Hungry and Homeless Project
During the Summer of 2011 while adoptions were way down, we felt like we were not doing enough.
Our rescue was full and we weren't able to take in any more dogs.
So we had an idea.........
We had been seeing Homeless people living on the streets with their
These are people who would rather sleep outside than be separated from their pets. Homeless shelters in Houston do not accept animals.We knew we couldn't really do much for the homeless people, we don't have nearly enough resources, but the pets...that we can do something about.

We began going out twice a week driving around town and passing out dog food and treats to the Homeless in our community with pets. Then we asked all of our FaceBook friends and fans to start looking for these people an posting us as to their locations, this way we could get a really big list and we could maximize our time. So far this is is working really well. We have regulars that we see each week and have gotten to know a group of men in a Tent City.
When Thanksgiving 2011 rolled around and we found out the guys at Tent City had no where to go we organized a HUGE Thanksgiving FEAST.
With the help of some of Jurassic Barks' best friends we were able to do Turkey with all the Fixin's plus some generous donations of clothing and other necessities.
We now have a size-able stockpile of dog and cat food and a list as long as Santa's, so each night we can deliver to someone in town .
We have begun spaying/neutering and vetting the homeless dogs, we have gotten to know the people and have started passing out bedding and clothing. With the help of our Facebook friends we are able to go out three times a week with supplies for both humans and animals !
Please follow us on FaceBook

We are out every day and two/three nights a week.
And recently SPARK ENERGY donated the funds for a
GENERATOR so the homeless men at tent city
could have heat and air !!!!!

What is Project Ninja?
We take donations of Turkeys, Hams, & sides...then we cook, plate and deliver upwards of 250+ individual Thanksgiving meals to Houston's Homeless on Thanksgiving Day...and then again on Christmas Day. We deliver and go, we do not stage a big feast, as these meals are delivered by Ninja volunteers who drive all over town passing out one meal at a time. In and out and no one knows we were there ! This is a Jurassic Bark Rescue Extravaganza....and was held again this year in 2013. We fed over 600 homeless one meal at a time all over the greater Houston area.
All donations are tax-deductible, as JBR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
