Another success story: Rodney

Here’s an update from our friends at Houston’s Homeless Pet Placement League:

Meet Rodney, calm as can be, before boarding the van and riding to his forever home in Colorado. Once again HPPL and Rescued Pets Movement have partnered to save a great animal. Rodney came to BARC with two fractures, leg and hip. BARC reached out to RPM and RPM reached out to HPPL. As a result of all parties working together, this sweet dog had surgery, received plenty of love and care in his RPM foster home and after his “trip to the Rockies” met his adopter last weekend. We hope you never tire of these heartwarming stories of team work resulting in lots of smiles because HPPL has more coming up in the next few weeks.

This is what happens when rescue groups work together, and we’re proud of our partnership with HPPL.

Success Story Sunday: Chance (formerly known as Coyote).

Today’s success story is about Coyote, a former BARC Length of Stay dog who we moved to Colorado earlier this year. Our Colorado adoption coordinator, Kiersten, worked long and hard to find him the perfect family. She did, and we’re glad to be able to share the above photo and below excerpt from an email recently sent to Kiersten.

Thank you so much for giving great advice to my friend. Funny, I was telling her how awesome my experience was [with RPM] and how you were in constant communication for all my stupid questions. Thank you again for giving me the best gift ever next to my children. Chance (fka Coyote) is my world and we can’t imagine our life without him. He is truly a nanny dog and my children’s protector. He doesn’t let them out of his site and is just the best dog ever. :)

Stormy Monday

If Houston’s rainy weather got you down today, then take a look back at last Thursday, when the sun shone on these dogs and cats who left for their new homes in Colorado.

They are why we send out pleas for fosters. Why we have fundraisers. Why everyone who’s on Team RPM in any capacity puts so much passion and commitment into what we do. Thank you!

All the Right Moves

It’s Monday and that means we get to look back at the dogs and cats who traveled to Colorado last week! RPM’s mission is about going forward–after all, “movement” is part of our name!–and helping these great animals begin their new lives. But they remain in the hearts of those who gave them their rides out of BARC, took them into their homes, helped pay their boarding and vet bills, walked or fed them at the clinic, read about them and admired their foster photos on Facebook, cradled them in their arms as they were loaded onto our vans, and drove them 1000 miles. These pictures honor the dogs and cats in our program but also all of you–for all you’ve done for them.

Thank you!

Time For A Cool Change

We don’t know what’s cooler, Colorado as it moves into autumn or the team of people willing to give what is needed to get this done every week. It takes a lot of hours behind the scenes from RPM’s board and staff and the staff at BARC, the passion of our fosters, volunteers, and fundraisers, the commitment of our transporters and donors, the drivers who take care of the dogs and cats on the way, and our Colorado partners. Here’s who you all took care of last week.

Colorado is one lucky state. And we are one lucky group to have so many people willing to help these great dogs and cats find their forever homes there. Thank you.
