Success Story Sunday – Beau (formerly Ninja)

Beau (formerly Ninja) is another sweet pup that RPM transported to our good friends at 4 Paws 4 Life in Colorado. As can be seen in the photos, he is a happy pup and growing like a weed. His new family says that he loves to chase his tail and roll in the grass. He is a swimmer, and always jumps in the creek on walks. He’ll soon finish his shots and start puppy kindergarten, but he has already learned so much! He is fully crate trained and knows how to sit, shake, and lay down. He is a smart, energetic boy, and we’re so happy to hear that he is doing so well!

Success Story Sunday – Stella (formerly Tiny Dancer)

A couple of weeks ago, we had a happy update from Hippos. As tiny newborns, Hippos and his eight brothers and sisters traveled with their mom, Fancy, to Colorado. This week, we have an update from Stella (formerly Tiny Dancer), Hippos’ sister! From Stella’s new mom:

Stella is super smart and playful and growing very fast! She loves meeting people and playing with her canine friends, but her favorite thing is to snuggle on the couch after a long day. She is my soulmate and I can’t imagine life without her!

Success Story Sunday – Peedy

Joel adopted Peedy after transport to our Colorado partner 4 Paws 4 Life. From Joel:

“I never thought I could love a dog as much as I love this one. I coach high school baseball and he will be in for a life of having fun at games and shagging balls.”

What an upgrade from a Houston shelter! We’re so happy to hear that Peedy made it into the perfect home.

Things can only get better.

Click through to read an article by Katherine Driessen for the Houston Chronicle about improvements at BARC, their 80% save rate, and their partnership with RPM. Today we learned that RPM moved 114 cats and 481 dogs out of BARC for a total of 595 saved in April 2015. BARC finished April with a 72.5% live release rate this year! In April 2014 their live release was 64.7% and in 2013 it was 55.7%. Howard Jones was right; things can only get better!

At BARC, record low euthanization rate marks yearslong turnaround: Transformed BARC sees its focus swing from euthanasia to animal adoptions
